Is this just another game to run out the regular-season schedule for the Blast, which has already clinched first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League's Eastern Division and the top seed for the playoffs? Or is it a vital showdown against the team's oldest and fiercest rival to regain momentum after two consecutive defeats, one a lopsided loss to Saturday's opposition, the Milwaukee Wave? The answer unfolds Saturday night at 1st Mariner Arena when they collide in Baltimore for the first time this season before what could be the Blast's biggest crowd of the season.

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.

For the Blast, this weekend's home-and-home series with the rival Milwaukee Wave could have lasting playoff implications. Both teams enter Saturday's 7:35 p.m. contest at 1st Mariner Arena — the first of six regular-season meetings — tied for first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League with 5-1 records. In order for the Blast to qualify for its fourth consecutive playoff appearance, it must prove it can beat the Wave. After all, the Blast has had to beat Milwaukee in the postseason in four of its past five championship runs, leading to a distinct animosity between the squads.

The Blast stayed undefeated by registering their largest margin of victory this season on Saturday night.. In a rather rough-and-tumble match, the home side broke away from Omaha in the third quarter for its second win over the Vipers, 12-4, before an announced 5,742 fans at 1st Mariner Arena . A three-point score by Lucio Gonzaga was the catalyst, giving the Blast a 7-2 lead about 5 1/2 minutes into the second half. It was a fortunate occurence for the Blast as Gonzaga fired a 25-yard attempt from out front which Viper goalkeeper Jose Bontti never saw coming, the result of being screened by one of his defenders.

For much of its season opener Friday night, the Blast was simply baffled, thanks to Chicago goalkeeper Jeff Richey and a stubborn Riot defense. Things changed with a sudden 18-second spurt in the third quarter, however. And it turned out to be the difference. Newcomer Worteh Sampson and Max Ferdinand answered the Richey riddle with goals 18 seconds apart, providing the Blast with the needed cushion to come away with a 10-6 Major Indoor Soccer League win over the Riot before an energized crowd of an announced 8,116 at 1st Mariner Arena . Sampson was brought in to do just what he did in the third quarter, collecting an entry pass from Mike Lookingland with his back to the goal, turning and firing from 10 yards to give the Blast its first lead at 6-4 with 7:09 left in the third quarter.

Aside from a brief announcement from the coach just beforehand, Wednesday's practice for Blast midfielder Robbie Aristodemo was no different from the others. The 32-year-old veteran was one of the first players to arrive and the last to leave, and in between the coming and going he was his usual persistent self. Aristodemo battled in the corners during a scrimmage, showed a little displeasure when a drill wasn't executed properly and made time to give positive words of instruction to one of the team's younger players.

If there was one burning issue surrounding the Blast this season, it was how Danny Kelly, the coach, was going to replace Danny Kelly, the player. As a playing coach during the stretch run to the 2005-06 Major Indoor Soccer League title, Kelly remained the glue of the team's defense, the orchestrator on the field. He was a vocal leader who had a knack for directing people into the right places. Two games into the new season, the answer is so far, so good. No one has taken over Kelly's role individually, but a committee of old hands is sharing the responsibilities.
