Fortunately for the Panthers they will get a chance for revenge in the first game of the 2011 SIFL season.
The league released its schedule and the Panthers will open the season at home March 19th against the same Louisiana Swashbucklers team from Lake Charles that upset them in the SIFL playoffs back in July.
It is the first of six home game for the Panthers who will host division rivals Columbus and Huntsville twice.
The regular season ends in early June against Huntsville Hammer.
With most of last year's Panther team coming back, the first game is already circled on the Albany schedule.
Season tickets for the 2011 Albany Panthers are on sale.

Will Carter said. "It ended up being a devastating loss for us. we lost. I think some of the players that we are signing back played last year for us. they are going to be eager to play against the Swashbucklers in the first game on March 19th."
