Scouting report: Blast at Philadelphia KiXX

February 28, 2010|By Glenn Graham

Today's Blast Game
Blast (7-7) at Philadelphia KiXX (5-7)

Time: 4:05


Outlook: The Blast righted the ship with two wins last weekend - the second a 9-0 shutout at Rockford last Sunday - to end a five-game slide, reach the .500 mark and take over third place in the Major Indoor Soccer League. Today provides a chance to get further separation against the fourth-place KiXX, who are coming off a 15-10 loss to the first-place Milwaukee Wave last week. Blast G Sagu finished with 16 saves in last Sunday's shutout, earning MISL Player of the Week honors. His priority today will be containing KiXX M Adauto Neto, the former Blast player who ranks third in the league in scoring with 40 points. The Blast has won the first two meetings, both in Baltimore. KiXX G Sanaldo has a 15.03 points-against average, which ranks last in the league.
