L.A. BLUES: New venues for Antigua clashes
By Scott French
Some last-minute scrambling was necessary for the L.A. Blues, who have moved their USL Pro match Friday against Antigua Barracuda to Norco and scheduled Tuesday's finale of the rare three-game series for Pacific Palisades.
Field problems at Cal State Fullerton's Titan Stadium forced the move of Friday's match, the club reports, to Norco College. Kickoff is 5:30 p.m., 2½ before the originally scheduled time. The teams will meet again Sunday at Norco College, at 5 p.m.
Tuesday's match will be played at 5:30 p.m. at Palisades High School, which the Blues' Premier Development League (L.A. Blues 23) and W-League (Pali Blues) call home.
The Blues (7-4-6) are riding a four-game unbeaten streak as they chase first-place Rochester (10-6-3) and second-place Harrisburg (9-5-6) in the National Division. Antigua (7-12-1) is last in the American Division after losing seven in a row.
