L.A. BLUES: New schedule finalized

The Blues on Sunday squared everything away with their new schedule, the one they were presented after the USL Pro league last week booted three Puerto Rican teams and dumped a division.

The Blues (4-2-1) were moved into the American Division -- by far the weaker of the two remaining groups -- in the fallout, and their schedule has been altered heavily, with dates, opponents and in some cases venues changing.

Most notable: The home game initially slated for July 17 at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita has been moved to Centennial High School in Corona. One game, on Aug. 2, is at the moment homeless; if it is not placed at COC, there will be no Blues games in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Here's the updated remaining slate, with home games in boldface (all times Pacific):

May 20 at Dayton (Ohio) Dutch Lions, 4:30 p.m.

May 22 at Pittsburgh Riverhounds, 2 p.m.

June 24 vs. Harrisburg (Pa.) City Islanders at Centennial HS (Corona), 7:30 p.m.
