The Missouri Comets defeated the visiting Blast, 18-9, Friday night to hand Baltimore its second straight loss. Ricardinho led the Eastern-Division-leading Blast with two goals. After a scoreless first quarter, the Blast and Comets combined to score six goals in less than four minutes in the second quarter. Ricardinho started the flurry at 5:59 and Mike Deasel scored a 3-point goal less than 30 seconds later to give the Blast a 5-0 lead. Baltimore's lead was short-lived, however, as the Comets went on a four-goal run in a span of 1:20 to take a 9-5 lead into the halftime break.

Archbishop Spalding midfielder Marissa Brown sent a perfect cross to the middle in the closing minutes of the game against visiting Catonsville on Monday, and forward Sarah Ensor one-timed a shot that was headed on goal. But Comets defender Lauren Vogelpohl was where she needed to be - between Ensor and the goal - to block the shot. The ball was cleared immediately after. If there was one play that depicted the solid 80 minutes of play from both sides, it was that one. Both teams had scoring chances, and both simply played better defense as No. 4 Spalding and No. 13 Catonsville played to a 0-0 draw.

The biggest thing the Sparrows Point girls soccer team stressed at halftime of Friday's game against No. 9 Catonsville was being sure to respond favorably if the Comets scored. So when the visitors did score a tying goal midway through the second half, the Pointers had a chance to apply what they discussed. They did so impressively. Sparrows Point came right back, getting a goal from Jamie Shiflett three minutes later and went on to claim a well-deserved, 3-1 upset win over Catonsville.

After 35 minutes of play, the No. 11 Severn boys lacrosse team looked as if it had little to worry about in its game against Catonsville. The Admirals had built a comfortable four-goal lead. Eight minutes and three Comets goals later, and it looked as if they had a good chance of being upset. Midfielder Nick Verklin and his Admirals teammates knew what they had to do, though. "We had to stay calm," Verklin said. "They came back hard, but we had to play good defense and put in a couple more goals."

During the golden age of Major Indoor Soccer League in the 1980s, the game featured players who dazzled fans with their nifty footwork, creativity and individual skills. Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.
