Maryland Bays goalkeeper Steve Powers will be signed to a 15-day contract as the Baltimore Blast goalkeeper if Cris Vaccaro goes down with an injury, coach Kenny Cooper said yesterday.
Powers has been working out with the Blast the past several weeks even though the team told him during training camp that it could not offer him a contract as the backup to Vaccaro.
Powers, 27, said it has been a big adjustment from the outdoor game to indoor goalkeeping.
"There are so many more deflections and rebounds to worry about indoors," said Powers. "But I feel a little more comfortable every day I practice with the Blast. This is a great group of guys who are very team-oriented. It would be great to get a chance to play in a real game with this team."
