Matchup: Blast (18-6) vs. Philadelphia KiXX(13-8)

Site: Wachovia Spectrum, Philadelphia

Time: 7:05

Radio: WCBM (680 AM)

Outlook: Philadelphia won its first two meetings with the Blast this season, 5-3 and 9-4. Since then, the Blast has won 16 of 19 games, including a league-best seven-game winning streak in January and an 8-4 victory over Philadelphia on Dec. 26. The Blast leads the KiXX by 3 1/2 games in the MISL Eastern Division. Philadelphia defender Pat Morris was named the league's defensive player of the month on Tuesday, and his teammate Peter Pappas earned the goalkeeper honor. Blast defender Danny Kelly (foot) is questionable, and forward Tarik Walker (ankle) is listed as probable. Backup goalie Karim Moumban (personal reasons) is out. The KiXX will be missing defender Shawn Boney (foot). Midfielder Tony McPeak (ankle) is questionable.
