Blast preview

March 12, 1991|By Sandra McKee


* WHERE: Tacoma Dome.

* WHEN: Tonight, 10:35.


* OUTLOOK: The Blast takes three unwanted streaks into Tacoma: It has lost five in a row, nine straight on the road and six straight in the Tacoma Dome.

Tacoma (21-21) comes into the game off back-to-back losses. But the Stars have a 13-7 home record and when push comes to shove against the Blast, Tacoma knows how to win at the Dome. The Stars have won all three games here against Baltimore in overtime. In fact, five of the six wins have been in OT.

The Blast (19-23) won't be helped by increasing injuries. Listed as questionable tonight: Rusty Troy (knee), Chris Haywood (toe), Mark Mettrick (groin), Richard Chinapoo (bruised hip). For Tacoma, Kia (ankle) and Billy Crook (hip strain) are questionable.

After tonight, the Blast returns to Baltimore for back-to-back weekend games against Wichita Friday and San Diego Saturday.
