After outscoring Pennsylvania by a combined 74-2 in its three previous meetings this season, the Blast faced a much different Roar team Saturday night, one more committed to blocking shots and defending its goal. Pennsylvania kept four players behind the ball and put a forward just above midfield as a target for counterattacks. Playing its second game in as many days, the Blast overcame some early struggles to pull away for a 16-5 victory before an announced 4,585 at Baltimore Arena.

The latest member of the Blast made a lasting impression on his new teammates at practice Wednesday. Less than four minutes into the team's scrimmage, parked on the left side of the field at Northeast Regional Recreation Center, he aimed a shot to the far post that beat goalkeeper William Vanzela. It was a special goal on a special day for a special kid. Jacob Barford, an eighth-grader at Centreville Middle School in Queen Anne's County, has Evans syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease in which an individual's antibodies attack the body's red blood cells and platelets.

On Saturday night, the Blast expected to celebrate another Major Indoor Soccer League playoff berth. The Missouri Comets had another idea. Missouri (9-9) went on a 10-3 run in the middle of the second half to outlast the Blast (15-5), 14-11, before an announced 6,319 at the 1st Mariner Arena . "We had a decent stretch, but it wasn't good enough," Blast coach Danny Kelly said. "With some of the goals we gave up, you're not going to win a professional soccer game. Our defending was poor and our finishing was poor.

The Blast is playing with an air of confidence that's easy to notice these days. There's nothing particularly brash about it, just a simple way of how the undefeated team is going about its business. It was clear to see against the Missouri Comets on Saturday night, how the home team made things look easy, scoring the game's first 15 points to methodically build an insurmountable lead. The Blast shared the ball, pounced on scoring chances, yielded little ground on defense in the important moments and proved far superior against another Major Indoor Soccer League opponent in a 15-9 win over the Comets in front of an announced 6,611 at 1st Mariner Arena . The win puts the Blast (9-0)

The Blast impressed in winning its first three games of the Major Indoor Soccer League season, but the team knew Friday night's visit from the two-time defending league champion Milwaukee Wave would provide a greater assessment of where it stood in the early season. The answer was far more impressive. Sharing the ball on offense and getting a second straight sparkling performance from rookie goalkeeper William Vanzena, the Blast took charge early and never wavered in a 15-4 win before an announced 4,895 at 1st Mariner Arena . The Blast got goals from seven players, with the first five coming off assists.
