The home game woes that plagued the Baltimore Blast earlier in the season are clearly long gone. More proof came in dominating fashion Friday night against the visiting Syracuse Silver Knights, the team that spoiled the Blast's home opener back in November and rubbed it in some more with another win at 1st Mariner Arena in December. This time around, the Blast bullied the Silver Knights all over the field with a perfectly executed first half that made the second half an afterthought, winning 21-6 before an announced crowd of 4,864.

There have been a number of pleasant surprises so far this season, but none bigger than Vanderbilt. While the Commodores haven't exactly beaten any BCS-bound powerhouses en route to the school's first 3-0 start since 1984 , their victories over Wake Forest, Arkansas (in Fayetteville) and Saturday's 31-23 win over Ole Miss are a clear indication that the SEC might have to find a new doormat. "I think they"re a good team." Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron said of the SEC's Eastern Division leader.

"As far as I'm concerned, the finals are starting Thursday," said Taneytown Cardinal manager Steve Bosley.His team will face the Cashtown (Pa.) Pirates tomorrow in the opening game of the Western Division best-of-three finals at Taneytown Memorial Park.And if you had a chance to look at the final regular season standings (Taneytown finished first in the West with a 27-5 record, one game in front of Cashtown's 26-6 mark), you would have a hard time arguing his logic.The only other team over the .500 mark in the regular season was the Eastern Division-leading Littlestown (Pa.)

In Game 1, the Comets shut out Wichita 6-0. The shutout was the eighth in MSL playoff history and the second one for goalkeeper Jim Gorsek, who beat the now-defunct Minnesota Strikers, 7-0, on May 14, 1985, as a member of the San Diego Sockers.
