The Blast is making a final effort to strengthen its goalkeeping situation before reaching a contract deadline with current starter Scoop Stanisic.
Former Dallas backup Hank Henry, 25, arrived in town last night and was to try out with the team today. Henry, who played for Southern Methodist University, appeared in four games with Dallas -- one in 1988-89 and three last season. He was 1-2 last year, including a shutout of Wichita, and has a 2.37 goals-against average.
Henry had a tryout with San Diego last month, but was not signed.
"He is a good goalkeeper, but he wasn't as good as I thought he'd be," said San Diego coach Ron Newman, who yesterday signed Michael Collins, a midfielder for the Blast from 1984 to '86. "He wasn't any better than our developmental goalkeeper. And with no disrespect to Hank, I think Baltimore will find Scoop is the better of the two."
