Six of the Major Soccer League's seven teams are in for 1992-93, but the St. Louis Storm is questionable.The Blast, Dallas Sidekicks, San Diego Sockers, Cleveland Crunch, Tacoma Stars and Wichita Wings have posted or have promised to post by Monday the required $350,000 letter of credit due this week.The fate of the Storm, which averaged a league-high 10,000 fans this season, is dependent on a transfer of ownership from Milan Mandaric to Abe Hawatmeh of St. Louis.Hawatmeh told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch yesterday Mandaric has agreed to assume all Storm debts and lower his undisclosed asking price.

If the Baltimore Blast gains the final playoff berth in the Major Soccer League Eastern Division, it probably will travel to Kansas City, Mo., April 12 to play the Comets in the first game of a best-of-three Eastern Division semifinal series.The second game would be played in Baltimore April 14 and the third game, if necessary, at Kansas City April 16, MSL officials said yesterday.However, if the second-place Comets overtake the Cleveland Crunch for first place, the third-place Blast would face a best-of-three series against the Crunch.

ST. LOUIS -- Old is in these days with the St. Louis Storm, where Slobo Ilijevski and Branko Segota refuse to act their age.Ilijevski and Segota, two of the Major Soccer League's elder statesmen, played prominent roles as the Storm beat the Baltimore Blast, 10-6, last night.Segota, 30, who broke into the league in 1978-79, recorded three assists to become the second MSL player to reach the 800-point mark. He has 801 in 11 seasons.Ilijevski, 42, by far the oldest player in the league, proved he still has some quality time left.

CLEVELAND CRUNCH* WHEN: Tomorrow, 7:35.* WHERE: Baltimore Arena.* RADIO: WCAO-AM (600).* OUTLOOK: Bleak is the best way to describe the Blast's situation going into this pair of weekend games against the two hottest teams in the MSL.Despite Wichita's 8-4 loss to Dallas last night, there is no breathing room. Wichita (19-30) is still within two games of Baltimore with three to play. And with games against St. Louis, Cleveland (twice)

ST. LOUIS -- A trip to St. Louis used to be the perfect cure when the Baltimore Blast was ailing. But that no longer appears to be the case.Baltimore, which at one time held a 10-0 lifetime record over the St. Louis Storm, hobbled into St. Louis last night, and the Storm showed no mercy, as Preki, Thompson Usiyan and Brian Schmetzer scored fourth-quarter goals to produce a 5-4 win over the Blast.Dale Mitchell had a hat trick and Domenic Mobilio a goal for Baltimore (19-22), which has dropped four in a row overall and eight straight on the road.
