Outlook -- The Blast clinched a spot in the Major Indoor Soccer League's playoffs last weekend with Philadelphia's loss and hopes to end a two-game losing streak tonight. The Blast has won all four meetings with California this season and needs to keep up with Milwaukee (15-8), which is one-half game ahead in the battle for second place. Giuliano Celenza should return tonight after missing last Sunday's loss in Milwaukee with the flu. Robbie Aristodemo and Machel Millwood both scored two goals in the defeat. California has the league's worst defense, but has been on a roll lately, winning six of its last eight. Gary Brooks scored the game-winning goal in overtime last Saturday to give the Cougars a 4-3 victory over Chicago.
