Pro Soccer

April 24, 2005|By Sandra McKee

Matchup: Blast (15-23) vs. Milwaukee Wave (23-15)

Site: U.S. Cellular Arena, Milwaukee

Time: 2:05 p.m.

Radio: WCBM (680 AM)

Outlook: A year ago, these teams met in the Major Indoor Soccer League's championship series. And the Blast won for the second consecutive year. But tonight, the Blast is anything but championship material. Having suffered significant injuries throughout the season and having traded star performer Chile Farias and workhorses Allen Eller and Neil Gilbert, the team faded in the stretch. This afternoon will wrap up the season, with the Blast missing the playoffs for the first time in seven years. The team will be without Denison Cabral, Adilson De Lima and Carlos Garcia (all of whom have had knee operations), and Marcos Chantel (groin surgery).
