Blast exhibition may come here SOCCER

October 08, 1991|By Bill Free

The Baltimore Blast's Sunday exhibition game against the Cleveland Crunch, originally scheduled for Providence, R.I., may moved to Baltimore's Du Burns Arena.

The Blast-Crunch game is tentatively is set for 2 p.m., though plans for the rescheduled game weren't firm last night.

The game was supposed to be played at the Providence Civic Center, but Blast officials recently learned that the arena had a scheduling conflict.

Normally, the Blast plays its preseason games on the road in other East Coast cities in an attempt to

market the Major Soccer League to prospective expansion cities.

Saturday night, Cleveland defeated Baltimore, 4-3, at the Richmond (Va.) Coliseum.

Billy Ronson, who broke his left wrist in that game, will continue to play for the next six weeks with a cast. Defender Iain Fraser (abdominal strain) missed Saturday's game but is expected to play Sunday.

NOTES: The Blast is expected to make some final roster moves in the next 24 hours to meet the MSL deadline of midnight tomorrow for completing 16-man rosters. . . . The Blast has 19 players in camp, including 3 who don't have contracts -- M Doug Miller (former Loyola College standout), second-round draft choice F Tim Ernst (University of Evansville) and G Joe Mallia (Old Dominion University).
