The Blast had a week to fret about its previous lost weekend, when it saw its chance to clinch first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League put on hold with two disappointing losses. It took two minutes Sunday for the Blast to feel better. With one final chance to lock up the top spot, skip the first round of the playoffs and assure the league's championship game will be here at 1st Mariner Arena on March 25, the Blast jumped on the visiting Missouri Comets and rolled to a regular-season-ending 17-6 win in front of an announced 6,425.

The Blast has added a valuable and unexpected piece to its 2010-11 roster with the signing of former Philadelphia KiXX standout defender Pat Morris. In 11 seasons with the KiXX, Morris earned Major Indoor Soccer League Defender of the Year honors in 2005 and 2009 and played a key role on two league championship teams. When the KiXX recently folded operations for the coming MISL season, they opened the door for the Blast to add Morris, who has long been a nemesis. The announcement came at a news conference Monday afternoon at 1st Mariner Bank Tower in Canton.

With a chance to win the Major Indoor Soccer League's top playoff seeding, and thus the right to bypass the first round and host the championship game March 25, the Blast's assignment Sunday is simple: beat the Missouri Comets at 1st Mariner Arena . It could have been even simpler. A victory at home against the last-place Chicago Riot on March 4 or on the road against the Blast's chief contender, the Milwaukee Wave, last Sunday would have finished the task. But neither happened, and now the Blast faces an almost-certain must-win situation.

The Blast is going to have to wait to assure itself another berth in the Major Indoor Soccer League championship game. Friday night's 11-9 overtime defeat at the hands of the Chicago Riot at 1st Mariner Arena delayed the Blast's clinching the regular-season title and an automatic berth in the finale and broke its eight-game winning streak. The last-place Riot (5-14), the first team eliminated from the postseason picture, didn't make it easy all night and finally prevailed when Ante Cop knocked in the game-winner on an assist from Miodrag Djerisilo only 2:11 into the extra period, sending a an announced crowd of 9,118, the largest of the season, home disappointed.

During a couple of stretches in Saturday night's Major Indoor Soccer League game at 1st Mariner Arena , the Baltimore Blast didn't resemble one of the league front-runners and the visiting Chicago Riot certainly didn't look like the basement dweller. But with five straight goals producing 10 unanswered points in a 14-minute stretch of the first half, the Blast was able to build enough of a cushion to avoid a potentially disastrous meltdown in the fourth quarter and pull out out a not-so-impressive 18-17 win over the Riot before an announced crowd of 6,916.
