Scouting report: Blast vs. Missouri Comets

December 10, 2010|By Glenn Graham, The Baltimore Sun

Missouri Comets (1-3) at Blast (2-0)

When: 7:35 p.m. Saturday

Where: 1st Mariner Arena


Outlook:  Balanced scoring and strong goalkeeping from veteran Sagu have played big parts in the Blast's 2-0 start.  The team has gotten a point from 12 different players — Machel Millwood leading the way with seven points — and Sagu was particularly strong at Omaha where he had a 21-save performance in a 15-10 win on Nov. 28. The expansion Comets have brought in veteran defender Jeff Davis — a longtime member of the Kansas City Attack/Comets in the now-defunct National Professional Soccer League — to help shore up a defense that has yielded an average of 17 points in its first four games. High-scoring midfielder Leo Gibson, who has a league-high 15 points and earned Major Indoor Soccer League Offensive Player of the Month honors for November, will have the Blast's attention.  The Blast will induct former standout defender Doug Neely into the team's Hall of Fame at halftime.
