At times earlier this season, the Blast allowed too many opponents to run free and get into good scoring positions from the box. At other times, the offense faltered, failing to finish on numerous chances. But one segment of the team's play has been generally consistent and successful - the last line of defense. Starter Sagu and backup Brian Rowland have been an effective duo in goal, a strong signal that the defending Major Indoor Soccer League champions will be a force again if they qualify for the playoffs.

With the 2002-03 Major Indoor Soccer League season less than one month away, the Blast hopes it has added mightily to its offense yesterday with the signing of former league Most Valuable Player Gino DiFlorio. The 37-year-old forward has played 18 professional indoor seasons, the past four with the Harrisburg Heat. He comes to his sixth team with a strong resume: 1,601 career points, eight all-star appearances, and the 2000-01 MVP season in which he compiled 142 points in 35 games. He also comes to Baltimore with one big question: How's the knee?

Good indoor soccer players -- and good athletes in general -- know how to turn a disappointment into an advantage, or how to forget about a bad loss and go on to the next game. The Blast (15-22) has had several bad losses lately. It has lost a two-goal lead to fall in overtime to the Kansas City Comets and be eliminated from playoff contention. And it followed that up by blowing a 4-1 lead over the final 13 minutes against the Chicago Storm to also lose in overtime. Now comes the Cleveland Force here tonight and an afternoon game in Milwaukee on Sunday that will wrap up its Major Indoor Soccer League Season.

CLEVELAND - Blast coach Tim Wittman had a smile on his face after an improbable, 9-7 victory over the Cleveland Force yesterday. He also had a knot in his stomach and a few stern words for his team. "We stole one," Wittman said. "I'm happy we didn't quit, but I'm not pleased at all that we didn't start playing until the second half." Make that the final 6:05, when the Blast (20-8) scored five goals to turn a 7-4 deficit into its fifth win in five meetings this season with the rival Force (8-18)
