Blast tonight

Matchup: St. Louis Steamers (5-10) vs. Blast (11-5)

Site: 1st Mariner Arena

Time: 7:35

Outlook: The Blast (11-5) is alone again at the top of the Major Indoor Soccer League's Eastern Division after a productive weekend in Kansas City and Cleveland. Defender Neil Gilbert and midfielder Denison Cabral each scored twice Saturday night, lifting the Blast to a 7-5 victory over the Force, following a 10-6 win over the Comets the previous night. Forward Giuliano Celenza went on a three-goal scoring spree against the Comets, and forwards Tarik Walker and Carlos Farias each scored twice. Celenza has 13 goals, second on the team to Cabral's 15, with Celenza taking just 43 shots compared to 111 for Cabral. The offensive-minded Cabral has 26 points (15 goals, 11 assists), tying him for the team lead with Farias (seven goals, 19 assists). St. Louis arrives off a 9-5 road victory over the Philadelphia KiXX on Saturday. The Steamers are led in scoring by forward Steve Butcher (17 goals, 10 assists). The first 2,000 fans to arrive get a free Blast poster.
