Semi-pros prepare for competition

Southern Illinois Blast player Tommy LaFontaine, of Bloomingdale, defends the ball Thursday against his teammate Adam Grabowski, of Carbondale, during a scrimmage at Sports Blast. The semi-professional indoor soccer team put field time to use after the exhibition game against Cape Girardeau was cancelled. “Scrimmages give the guys an opportunity to compete for playing time,” coach and player Ortez Davis, of Carbondale, said. “It also provides the opportunity to mix and match to see what chemistry there is with different combinations of players.” S.I. Blast will face Evansville on Jan. 20 for the team’s next home match at Sports Blast. Tiffany Blanchette-Daily Egyptian
