Blast preview

January 04, 1991|By Sandra McKee

VS. DALLAS SIDEKICKS

* WHEN: Tonight, 8:35.

* WHERE: Reunion Arena.

* RADIO: WCAO-AM 600.

VS. ST. LOUIS STORM

* WHEN: Tomorrow, 7:35.

* WHERE: Baltimore Arena.

* RADIO: WCAO-AM 600.

* OUTLOOK: With Tim Wittman (back bruise) still sidelined, the Blast will try to get above .500 -- again. Dallas has the league's leading point scorer Tatu (33 goals, 31 assists), but the Sidekicks have lost four straight and five out of their last six. Poor defense is the reason: The Sidekicks (8-13) have given up 29 goals in their last four losses. Goalkeeper Joe Papaleo, who led the MSL last season with a 3.34 goals-against average, is struggling (6-10, with a 5.98 GAA).

St. Louis is led by the MSL's top goal scorer Preki, who has 38. The Storm (13-10) is right behind Tacoma (13-8) in the Western Division, and St. Louis has won seven of its last 10 games going into tonight's match with Cleveland. The Storm's confidence is soaring after winning the Zurich International New Year's Indoor Soccer Tournament in Switzerland this week.
