MILWAUKEE -- Blast goalkeeper Sagu stared down the leading scorer in the Major Indoor Soccer League and made a huge save, foiling a critical shootout attempt and leading the Blast to a 14-13 Major Indoor Soccer League semifinal victory over the Milwaukee Wave yesterday. Sagu's stop on Wave forward Greg Howes propelled the Blast to a sweep of the two-game series, its fourth straight victory in the postseason and a berth in the MISL championship game.

It's easy to understand why the Blast might have taken the Pennsylvania Roar lightly, given its slow start Friday night. Going into the game, the Blast had beaten the Major Indoor Soccer League expansion team in their first four meetings by a combined margin of 90-7, including two rare shutouts. Maybe it was because of a 12-day layoff in between games. Or maybe it was the early start time - 7:05 p.m. instead of the typical 7:35 p.m. at Baltimore Arena - that made the Blast's offense a no-show for more than a quarter.

PHILADELPHIA -- For want of a decent start, a game was lost yesterday. Unable to overcome a 12-point, first-quarter outburst by the Philadelphia KiXX, the Blast never pulled into serious contention, losing, 16-8, to the Major Indoor Soccer League leaders at the Wachovia Spectrum.

Blast forward Adauto Neto is on a roll, and the Philadelphia KiXX had the misfortune to get in his way last night. Neto posted his fourth three-goal game of the season and took over the Major Indoor Soccer League lead in scoring, finishing with three goals and one assist, as the Blast rolled to a 5-2 win over slumping Philadelphia before 10,082 at 1st Mariner Arena.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Blast traveled to Philadelphia yesterday with hopes of clinching a playoff berth, but the KiXX had other ideas.

I spent part of my afternoon doing a podcast for The Sun's Web site. I had no idea what a podcast was until someone explained it to me. Sounds like something that should be broadcast on the sci-fi channel. Congratulations to the Blast for winning a third Major Indoor Soccer League championship in four years, especially after the coaching change and all the distractions. I see they had to go to a "golden goal" format to take the title. Catchy name. Who's the commissioner of this league, Willy Wonka?

The Blast has the ideal primer for the upcoming Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs as the team closes out its regular season at 1st Mariner Arena on Saturday - a game against the two-time defending league champion Milwaukee Wave. The rivalry is far and away the best and most intense in the MISL, with all the other franchises too new to have developed any on the same level. And this game - set for 7:35 p.m. - has plenty on the line with the teams tied for first place in the league.

A familiar face will be on the field tonight at 1st Mariner Arena, and this time, he won't be wearing a Blast uniform. Lee Tschantret, a member of three Blast championship teams, returns as a member of the Philadelphia KiXX to continue a pro soccer odyssey that has lasted 18 years and more than 1,000 points. Tschantret, 39, reached the scoring milestone as a Blast player during the 2006-07 season, then "retired" to coach the sport and teach physical education at Loyola High, his primary workout site for staying in shape for the professional season.

The Blast will have to confront a quick turnaround, minor injuries and a seasoned and well-rested Milwaukee Wave team tonight in the first game of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals at 1st Mariner Arena. After eliminating the New Jersey Ironmen on Saturday night on the road with a grind-it-out 6-4 victory, the Blast will have enjoyed little recovery time before facing its oldest rival, a team that has not played in nearly two weeks. "They've had a good rest, but sometimes that kind of break isn't good," said Blast midfielder Robbie Aristodemo, who has a sore hamstring.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. --The Blast has been playing indoor soccer for 28 years. It has captured three Major Indoor Soccer League championships in that time, but it has never had a night like last night, as the team recorded the first shutout in franchise history, defeating the Chicago Storm, 13-0, behind goalkeeper Sagu. In a game far different than its last game, a 26-23 win at California on March 16, the Blast (17-9) continued its recent winning ways. Sagu, who sat out the California game, returned to the net and made 11 saves.

In a game in which the Blast defense was relatively secure, the offense couldn't convert enough opportunities. The result was a 6-4 defeat to the Detroit Ignition last night at 1st Mariner Arena, marking the Blast's first home setback of the season and dropping the team to last place in the Major Indoor Soccer League on a percentage basis.

Pro soccer Matchup -- Blast (13-6) @ St. Louis (15-4) Time -- 5:35 p.m. Radio -- 680 AM Outlook -- The Blast has won four straight and a victory here would put it within one game of the first-place Steamers. Adauto Neto ranks second in the Major Indoor Soccer League with 41 points while Giuliano Celenza is fourth (34). The Steamers have three players in the top 10 in scoring. Former Blast forward Carlos Farias is the team's top scorer (31 points), and goalie Brett Phillips also played a big part in the Blast's championship three years ago.
