Two weeks ago, the Blast was losing to the Cleveland Force 4-1, with much of the damage being done by Force forward Adauto Neto, when coach Tim Wittman took defenseman Billy Nelson aside. "Billy, I want you to chew him up," Wittman told him. And Nelson chewed him up. Neto didn't score again. And Nelson not only closed down the Cleveland forward, but also helped open up the Blast's offense. He blocked a season-high five shots and produced two assists. One of them brought the Blast to within a goal and the second assured a 9-7 victory.

IT'S HARD to develop a fan base when the league has only one superstar. It hard to market the league when the national headquarters was until recently in, of all places, Canton, Ohio. It's tough to draw media attention when the league doesn't have a national television contract. Welcome to the National Professional Soccer League, home of your Baltimore B-L-A-S-T! "I love the indoor game, and I still get a kick out of it," said Ed Hale, who became owner of the team for a second time in the spring of 1998.

VS. DALLAS SIDEKICKS* WHERE: Baltimore Arena.* WHEN: Tonight, 7:05.* RADIO: WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: As amazing as it seems, the Blast (19-20) is only 1 1/2 games out of first place in the Eastern Division of the Major Soccer League. Dallas (14-25), on the other hand, is out of the running in the West. The problem for the Blast is that the Sidekicks can gain a lot of delight by wrecking the plans of contenders. The Sidekicks come into tonight's game off a 10-8 loss to Wichita, while the Blast returns home after back-to-back losses in San Diego and Tacoma, the last in triple overtime.
