According to a source within the Big East Conference, Villanova's board of trustees will not hold an anticipated Tuesday vote on whether to move up to Division I-A and join the Big East for football because the conference's football members are not ready to sign off on the Wildcats' plans. The chief sticking point, according to the source, is Villanova's plan to use PPL Park in Chester, the 18,500-seat home of the Philadelphia Union, as its primary venue. PPL Park would be the smallest stadium in the league.

Union goalie Zac MacMath has started every game for the last two years, but his role soon will change. When the Union signed two-time Algerian World Cup goalie Rais Mbohli last week, interim manager Jim Curtin said that the 28-year-old keeper would be the starter as soon as he was in game shape. Mbohli didn't make the trip to Kansas City for Friday's 1-1 draw. It's possible he could get his first start in the Union's next Major League Soccer game, Saturday against the Montreal Impact at PPL Park in Chester.

The Independence are moving to a new home field at Widener University this season because of economics, team owner and CEO David Halstead said Thursday. The Women's Professional Soccer team played its inaugural season at West Chester University. Halstead said it is more cost-effective to play at Widener. West Chester's John A. Farrell Stadium has a capacity of 7,500. The Independence averaged 2,938 last season. Widener's Leslie Quick Stadium seats 4,500. Halstead said the goal for the team is to average 4,000 fans.
