Flare won’t change security

There will be no additional police presence or special searches for flares tomorrow at BMO Field when Toronto FC plays Kansas City.

A 26-year-old female fan suffered second-degree burns to her leg when a lit flare struck her Wednesday during a Chivas-TFC game.

Two flares were tossed, but security, with the help of fans, quickly caught the alleged culprits, a pair of teens who were both charged with a variety of assault and weapons offences.

“This was an isolated incident,” said Bob Hunter, executive vice-president of venues for Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd.

“But we have been tweaking the numbers of our security personnel the past 21/2 years.”

AN MLSEL official said earlier the offenders will lose their ticket privileges.

De Ro out two weeks

Midfielder Dwayne De Rosario confirms he has a torn hamstring, but says he doesn’t expect to be out more than two weeks. If he wants to push it, that could mean he gets back for the May 2 home game against Columbus, but he might test it in the Nutrilite Canadian championship match against Vancouver May 6.
