PLAYERS: Luis angel Firpo
A promoter and police say fans will see stepped-up security for a soccer exhibition in Las Vegas this weekend featuring Monarcas Morelia of Mexico and Luis Angel Firpo of El Salvador. The measures follow brawls at a July 3 match between rival Mexican teams Chivas and Club America that officials say sent six people to the hospital and led to nine incident reports filed with Sam Boyd Stadium officials. Police say no arrests were made and they're not investigating because no victims have come forward. Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said Friday that additional officers will be at Saturday's game. Planet Futbol chief Eduardo Beltramini tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/12m5Fzv) that when fans see more security they'll be less likely to run on the field and cause trouble.
