Baltimore Blast coach Kenny Cooper said he could have taken the night off if he had known how well the team was going to play."Jimmy [Pollihan, assistant coach] and I could have gone and sit in the stands the way we played," said Cooper. "We stuck to our system perfectly and played great one-touch, two-touch soccer all night. In my 11 years of coaching this team, it was the greatest performance ever."The result was a 6-0 victory over the Tacoma Stars before 9,279 at the Baltimore Arena on an evening when goalkeeper Scott Manning did what many thought to be impossible this season.

His teammates see a mild-mannered guy who turns into a vocal, passionate leader the minute he takes his position in front of the net. Midway through the Major Indoor Soccer League season, Blast second-year goalie Sagu has emerged as a take-charge player at perhaps the game's most crucial spot. He is finally healthy. His confidence is growing as he elevates his game. And, although he has gotten his edgier, frenetic side more under control over the years, he still throws his weight and his words around in the heat of competition.

He has been throwing his jersey into the stands to celebrate a goal for about 13 years. It has become Tatu's calling card.One time after he hurled his jersey, a woman fan caught it and lighted it on fire, bringing security guards scurrying to extinguish the blaze. Another time, a fan threw Tatu's jersey back on the field, to the delight of the crowd.In part because he scores often enough to strain the team's jersey budget and in part because it is unwise to incite a hostile crowd, Tatu no longer throws his jersey after scoring on the road.

Blast midfielder David Vaudreuil looks at tonight's game with the Dallas Sidekicks as a mirror image of his own situation."Playing Dallas is an opportunity we can't afford to miss," said Vaudreuil. "Just like I can't afford not to take advantage of my opportunity to play."During a meeting yesterday, Blast coach Kenny Cooper made it clear to his third-place team that it can't afford to lose any of its six remaining home games, beginning tonight against Dallas.As for Vaudreuil, he will be seeing more playing time because of an injury to Tim Wittman, who will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday.

The Baltimore Blast not only lost the season opener to the Dallas Sidekicks Saturday night at the Baltimore Arena, but touched off some controversy with Tatu.The Dallas Sidekicks forward, the Major Soccer League's leading scorer the past two seasons, reacted bitterly to charges by two Blast players that he purposely "dives" to prompt referees to call penalties against opposing players."It's getting old," said Tatu after a 7-3 Sidekicks victory before 11,154. "That kind of statement doesn't even deserve an answer.

VS. DALLAS SIDEKICKS* WHERE: Baltimore Arena.* WHEN: Tonight, 7:05.* RADIO: WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: As amazing as it seems, the Blast (19-20) is only 1 1/2 games out of first place in the Eastern Division of the Major Soccer League. Dallas (14-25), on the other hand, is out of the running in the West. The problem for the Blast is that the Sidekicks can gain a lot of delight by wrecking the plans of contenders. The Sidekicks come into tonight's game off a 10-8 loss to Wichita, while the Blast returns home after back-to-back losses in San Diego and Tacoma, the last in triple overtime.
