Matchup: Blast (15-23) vs. Milwaukee Wave (23-15) Site: U.S. Cellular Arena, Milwaukee Time: 2:05 p.m. Radio: WCBM (680 AM) Outlook: A year ago, these teams met in the Major Indoor Soccer League's championship series. And the Blast won for the second consecutive year. But tonight, the Blast is anything but championship material. Having suffered significant injuries throughout the season and having traded star performer Chile Farias and workhorses Allen Eller and Neil Gilbert, the team faded in the stretch.

The Blast's offense was impressive in Game 1 of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals last night. Eight different players scored goals against the Milwaukee Wave as the Blast repeatedly converted chances it had been missing in recent weeks. But despite the strong offensive effort, there's no question that defense provided the backbone for the Blast's 10-4 victory before 5,097 at 1st Mariner Arena. The Blast defense hounded Milwaukee all over the field, created numerous turnovers and combined with goalie Sagu to slow the potent Wave attack.

In 2005, when he was released from his Major League Soccer contract with Real Salt Lake after one season, Mike Lookingland considered two options. One was to try to find a new MLS team. The other option, however, just felt right. "Even when I was playing in the MLS, I used to always talk up the Baltimore Blast," he said. "I always knew in my heart that's where I wanted to play. So as soon as I got released, I called [Blast general manager] Kevin Healey and asked if the Blast had any room for me. He said 'Yeah, we have one spot left.'  To play for my home team ... it's been a dream come true.
