There was an outstanding second-quarter burst of offense from the Blast, followed by an impressive third-quarter defensive front against the Milwaukee Wave. But probably the most special moment in last night's second game of the Major Indoor Soccer League's best-of-three final series was the very last, when a vocal crowd of 7,436 at 1st Mariner Arena stood and applauded as the Blast came away with a 15-12 win that sent the team back to Milwaukee's Bradley Center for a third and deciding game Friday at 8:05 p.m. First things first, and that was the Blast's effort to get there.

MISL semifinals Blast (18-26) at Milwaukee Wave (34-10) When: Tonight, 8:30, WJFK (1300 AM) Where: Bradley Center, Milwaukee Format: One-game semifinal Outlook: The Wave's home dominance (22-0 at the Bradley Center) and the whopping 16 games that separated the teams in the regular-season standings don't seem to faze the Blast. It's the playoffs now, the time the team has long been anticipating, and players are confident they can get the job done. That may be easier said than done. The Blast can't give anything away at the defensive end and must match the Wave's tireless, collective work rate, shift after shift.

MILWAUKEE -- The Bradley Center was probably the last place the Spirit wanted to be yesterday, facing the powerful Milwaukee Wave one day after being eliminated from playoff contention.The NPSL's Central Division leader had spotted Baltimore a 10-point halftime lead only to rally for a 14-12 win two games earlier, but the Wave was far less hospitable yesterday, crushing the Spirit, 22-10, before 7,162 at the Bradley Center.In a game indicative of its score, the Wave (24-10) erupted for nine unanswered points in the second quarter to take control and sent the Spirit (10-26)

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Wave goalkeeper Dan Green said the surroundings felt strange as he stepped onto the turf yesterday at the Bradley Center. Green was making his first start at home since November 1999, giving All-Star goalkeeper Victor Nogueira a rare day off, and he used the home appearance as inspiration for a sparkling 11-save performance as the Wave defeated the Blast, 12-5, before 8,503. "I expected Baltimore to come out flying, and they came out pretty hard," he said. The Blast (18-24)

Attached to the Milwaukee Wave are imposing numbers: Two straight championships, three in the previous four years and a first-place finish in the Major Indoor Soccer League this season that included a 22-0 home mark that made league history. No doubt impressive, but here are the only numbers that interest the Blast: one game, 60 minutes. The teams will meet at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee tonight in a one-game semifinal. From there, one team will go home and the other will move on to the MISL best-of-three championship series to face either the Philadelphia KiXX or Kansas City Comets, who play the other semifinal tonight.

To borrow a line etched on one of the pyramids, one game does not a season make. Still, the Blast should get a strong early indication of how successful it can be in the NPSL this season when it plays its first road game tomorrow.When you talk about the Milwaukee Wave, the Blast's opponent (WJFK 1300 AM, 8: 05 p.m.), you're talking about the big boys. The Wave cruised to the league championship last season with an overall record of 37-14 -- 28-12 during the season, 9-2 in the playoffs. It won 24 of 26 games played at the Bradley Center and returns about 90 percent of its players.

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Wave coach Keith Tozer said his team never considered the possibility of losing its second consecutive home game at the Bradley Center. No wonder. Tozer's crew was too busy scrambling to keep up with the talented Baltimore Blast, which extended the Wave into overtime last night before forward Michael King scored to give Milwaukee a tense 12-10 victory in a National Professional Soccer League game. Wave All-Stars Michael Richardson and King combined on the final play, which resulted in a goal when Blast forward Mark Thomas inadvertently tapped the ball into his own net three minutes into the sudden-death period.

MILWAUKEE - You'll forgive the Washington Wizards for thinking they were looking in a mirror last night when they faced the Milwaukee Bucks, who, like the Wizards, rely heavily on the jump shot to make up for the absence of a reliable inside attack. The Wizards found an interior game last night, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Bucks' perimeter game, as Milwaukee pulled out a 97-90 win before 18,717, only the second sellout at Bradley Center all season. The Bucks hit 10 three-pointers and a passel of clutch perimeter jumpers to take a two-game lead over Washington in the race for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The Blast would jump at the chance of fast-forwarding to next week and the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs, but unfinished business that could prove worthwhile in the regular season remains. Tonight's game in Milwaukee is a mere test run for next Friday, when the team goes back to the Bradley Center to take on the first-place Wave in a one-game semifinal playoff. Still, things can be learned, an additional comfort level can be found and a statement can be made tonight as the fourth-place Blast (18-24)

MILWAUKEE -- One Mount St. Mary's fan taunted Michigan State with a sign that read, "We Were a School Before You Were a State."You settle for any victory when you're a No. 16 seed in the NCAA tournament.Actually, the Mountaineers scored a victory of sorts where it counts last night -- on the court at the Bradley Center -- by playing the Spartans, the top seed in the Midwest Regional, competitively through most of the first half of their first-round game.They fared a lot better than they did in their last trip to the tournament, when one of Rick Pitino's Kentucky teams battered them by 46 points four years ago.They also fared better than Florida A&M, the No. 16 seed in the East Regional, which trailed Duke by 39 points at halftime last night and lost by 41."
