The Blast scored in bunches on Friday night and there were far too many for the Rochester Lancers to keep up. The biggest splurge came early in the third quarter - four goals in less than five minutes - and it gave the Blast plenty of cushion on its way to a comfortable 20-9 win over the Lancers in front of an announced crowd of 4,157 at 1st Mariner Arena . Forward Lucio Gonzaga led the way with two goals and two assists for the Blast, while...

The headmaster of one of Baltimore's most prestigious boys schools said yesterday that he will resign next year, capping a tenure that has at times put him in the spotlight of controversy. Archibald R. Montgomery IV made the announcement less than a month after perhaps the most turbulent incident he faced in eight years as headmaster of Gilman School. Montgomery, 47, who will leave July 1, 2001, had decided last month to temporarily bar the noted Lancers Boys Club from campus in the wake of a student's allegation against its founder, Robert I. H. Hammerman, a retired Baltimore Circuit Court judge.

It's easy to understand why the Blast didn't go into Saturday's night's game against the Rochester Lancers with any added motivation. Playing against the same team - an inferior one - on consecutive nights and for the third time in a span of five days didn't exactly promote enthusiasm. On top of that, the Lancers' game plan was geared on packing it in defensively to further frustrate the Blast. At least temporarily. The Blast stayed patient and broke open a close game with nine unanswered points in the second half to secure a 15-5 win in front of an announced 4,765 at 1st Mariner Arena . The win gives the Blast eight straight at home to start the season, breaking the franchise mark of seven set by the 1993-93 Baltimore Spirit.

A troubling speech by one of its students has prompted North Baltimore's Gilman School to re-examine its long-standing relationship with the celebrated Lancers Boys Club and its founder, Baltimore Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman. Gilman officials have temporarily barred the Lancers, a Baltimore civic club that Hammerman has headed for more than 50 years, from using the school's facilities pending resolution of what they call "community concerns." Those concerns stem from a speech delivered Monday by a 17-year-old senior who stunned a crowd of 450 people by relating what he called "a dark, deep secret."

THERE IS a tie that binds Baltimore Circuit Court Chief Judge Robert Hammerman, Alex. Brown chairman and CEO A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard, retired president of USAir Arena Jerry Sachs, Wall Street lawyer Howard "Cookie" Krongard, Mayor Kurt Schmoke and 3,000 other men. The tie is a boys' club called the Lancers, founded 50 years ago by three neighborhood boys, Buzzy, Jerry and Kenny Parker, all of whom lived on Wabash Avenue. Another neighbor, 17-year-old Bobby Hammerman, was asked to be the club adviser, a job he still loves to do. The first meeting was held at the Krongard home, where Buzzy's 5-year-old-brother Cookie was named the club mascot.

The Blast roster is a melting pot - there are slightly more first- and second-year players than veterans, and more are from Brazil than the Baltimore area. All the mixing and matching - eight players on the 18-man roster come from another country, and 10 have played for the team two years or less - may have been cause for concern at the start of the Major Indoor Soccer League season. But almost midway through the 26-game schedule, the Blast has already had a nine-game winning streak - to start the year - and finds itself atop the standings with a 10-2 record.

The Blast took a giant step toward clinching a Major Indoor Soccer League division title Saturday night at 1st Mariner Arena . Before an announced 6,473, Baltimore staved off the second-place team in the East, the Rochester Lancers, 8-7, and now needs only one victory with seven games left in the regular season. Even if Rochester wins out, the Blast (13-4) could go 1-6 and still take the top seed for the playoffs by virtue of a four-game season sweep of the Lancers. The Blast can nail down their No. 1 seeding Wednesday by beating the last-place Norfolk SharX, a team it has mostly dominated.

When the erstwhile Lancers Boys Club reconvenes in the fall, it will have something it has not had in more than half a century of existence: Girls. The independent youth leadership and public service organization - a local institution whose alumni of about 3,000 include such luminaries as former Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke and A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard, former Alex. Brown chief executive officer - will also have a new name. It will be called simply The Lancers Club. "I strongly believe that this move will bring new vitality to the club," said retired Baltimore Circuit Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman, the club's founder and guiding force, in a letter to members.

The Blast has certainly corrected its early-season miseries at home. After losing three straight at 1st Mariner Arena , the Major Indoor Soccer League's Eastern Division leader has spurted to three consecutive victories on its own field, the latest an 8-5 victory over the Rochester Lancers on Saturday night. Overall, it was the fifth consecutive win for the Blast and third in a row against expansion Rochester (6-8), which entered the night as the highest-scoring team in the league but fell 41/2 games back in the division race after its first visit to Baltimore.

The start to Joe Riddle 's senior season couldn't have gotten off to a much better start. “Our first game was against a very good South Carroll football team,” said Linganore coach Rick Conner . “It was 6-0 and we decided, 'OK, let's give Joe some chances.' He took a jet sweep for about 75 yards and made it 7-6. On the first play of the second half, he took a power off-tackle, bounced it and he was gone, 65 yards. The game was over, really.” Final score: Lancers 28, Cavaliers 6. Riddle's stat line that night came out to 232 yards rushing on 25 carries.
