In the final seconds of the Morgan State football team's 28-3 thumping of visiting Bowie State (0-2) at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, Lee Hull did his best to avoid what has become a tradition for rookie head coaches: a Gatorade bath. Hull stood on the far end of the Bears (1-2) sideline while the offense marched downfield. He kept his eyes on assistant coaches who tried to distract him while a couple players grabbed the monstrous jug. Eventually, Hull appeared to give in, walking back to the end of the field where the offense was putting the finishing touches on the victory.

The Blast gave player-interim coach Danny Kelly a few gifts last night. First came the team's aggressive effort in a 6-2 victory over Philadelphia before 5,107 at 1st Mariner Arena. The Blast controlled play at both ends and never trailed while breaking a four-game losing streak. The second present came after the game when the team spent several minutes signing a ball to give to its new leader after his first victory as a coach. Kelly took over after the suspension of Tim Wittman last week, and the Blast lost in his first game Friday.
