CHICAGO - With injuries mounting and his team without a win in three weeks, Blast coach Tim Wittman considered reaching into his team's storied past in a bid to reverse its fortunes yesterday. But with the Blast ahead through most of its Major Indoor Soccer League game against the Chicago Storm, the fourth-year coach figured he didn't need to play his alter ego - team Hall of Famer Tim Wittman. "No, that's the last thing I wanted to do," said Wittman, 42, who activated himself as a player for yesterday's game at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The Blast had not played in two weeks before taking the field last night at 1st Mariner Arena, but showed little signs of rust against the Chicago Storm. Powered by an offense that jumped on Chicago for four unanswered goals in the first six minutes and lifted by a superb showing from goalie Sagu, the Blast maintained its grip on third place in the Major Indoor Soccer League standings with a 9-5 win before 6,478. Forwards Adauto Neto and Guiliano Celenza each scored two goals and Sagu recorded a season-high 20 saves as the Blast (7-4)

The Blast went into last night's game looking for victory and came away with disappointment, losing to the Chicago Storm, 5-3. Both teams are in a final, desperate run for a playoff berth, and neither could afford to lose. Coming into the game, it looked as if the Blast, playing at home with a week of rest, would have the advantage over Chicago, a team that had played the night before and was also struggling because of a loss of players due to injuries and suspensions. But as the game wore on, the Storm inexplicably got stronger and the Blast weaker.
