Ongoing construction of Scotia-Glenville High School's new athletic turf field will send its varsity football team to Schenectady High School for its Sept. 6 season-opening game.

Scotia will entertain Hudson Falls in its home-away-from-home opener at 7 p.m. at Larry Mulvaney Field. The non-league contest will mark the head coaching debut of Scotia's Bob Leto.

"We are definitely going to be on the [new] field this year. We just don't have a date," Scotia athletic director Jamian Rockhill said. "There are so many moving parts."

Scotia will travel to Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake for its second game Sept. 13, and has home games scheduled for Sept. 20 against Queensbury and Sept. 27 against Mohonasen.

"There is a possibility," Rockhill said of the Tartans playing at home later in September.

Though synthetic turf has been put down at the Scotia field, the surrounding track still needs work, and lights and security cameras still need to be installed.

"Basically, it's a worksite right now," Rockhill said. "What's done is breathtaking. It really pops. A few things have to happen before we can get on it."

Schenectady opens its season Sept. 6 on the road at CBA.
