Giuliano Celenza’s 11 th season with the Blast will be his last.

McBride, who had played in each of the Hoyas' previous 18 games, averages 2.3 points, and Kirkland, a team captain who had played in 17 games, averages one point.

The Baltimore Blast's 2010 season ended in stunning and abrupt fashion last night against visiting Monterrey, a 10-8 loss in overtime that completed a two-game sweep for La RaZA in the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals that typified its topsy-turvy campaign. After the Blast rallied from a late 4-point deficit in the final four minutes of regulation -- veteran Giuliano Celenza tying the game with 30 seconds left -- it was Monterrey's Victor Quiroz who scored off a restart to send La RaZa to Sunday's championship game in Milwaukee.

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.

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.
