The Blast was not at all hospitable when the expansion Norfolk SharX made their first visit to 1st Mariner Arena on Friday night. Stung by an upset loss to the last-place SharX last week in Virginia, the Blast parlayed crisp teamwork and on-target shooting into a 18-2 victory before an announced crowd of 4,718. "I thought we had a great response coming off a loss where we didn't play very well," said Blast coach Danny Kelly, whose team's 17-12 loss at Norfolk on Jan. 12 snapped a five-game winning streak.

During the golden age of Major Indoor Soccer League in the 1980s, the game featured players who dazzled fans with their nifty footwork, creativity and individual skills. Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.

That first goal is so often the most difficult to get in the Major Indoor Soccer League, with the net seemingly smaller and smaller for the frustrated team as each minute passes by. For the defending league champion Blast - playing its home opener against the Milwaukee Wave on Saturday - the first quarter went by without a goal. And then the second. And then the third. And then, shockingly, the fourth one as well. The Wave got all the offense it needed in the first half and then effectively packed it in defensively during the second to come away with a stunning 8-0 shutout win over the Blast before an announced crowd of 8,780 at Baltimore Arena.
