When Giuliano Celenza was first signing with the Blast as a 21-year-old out of college, general manager Kevin Healey received a phone call from another Major Indoor Soccer League official. "He wanted to know if Jules' visa was in place," Healey recalled with a smile. That inquiry about Celenza, who is of Italian heritage, was off by an ocean and a continent. The young man's heart has always been in Highlandtown, and his body has followed obediently. From where Celenza was born and grew up, he easily could have walked to the Blast's offices and practice facility.

The Blast made more than a statement Sunday night; it gave a speech to the rest of the Major Indoor Soccer League. With perhaps its most impressive team effort of the season, the Blast dominated the second-place Milwaukee Wave, 20-9, at 1st Mariner Arena , clinched a berth in the playoffs and took a giant step toward finishing first and gaining a first-round bye and the home floor for the championship game. It was the seventh consecutive victory for Baltimore (13-3), which has not lost since Jan. 16, and ensured the team would hold the tiebreaker for first place should it come to that at the end of the season.

During a couple of stretches in Saturday night's Major Indoor Soccer League game at 1st Mariner Arena , the Baltimore Blast didn't resemble one of the league front-runners and the visiting Chicago Riot certainly didn't look like the basement dweller. But with five straight goals producing 10 unanswered points in a 14-minute stretch of the first half, the Blast was able to build enough of a cushion to avoid a potentially disastrous meltdown in the fourth quarter and pull out out a not-so-impressive 18-17 win over the Riot before an announced crowd of 6,916.

The Blast almost squandered an early 9-0 lead but hung on to beat the Missouri Comets, 15-13, on Saturday night at the Independence Events Center in Independence, Mo. Seven different players scored for the Blast, which improved to 8-3 on the season and remains in a tie with the Milwaukee Wave for first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League. Max Ferdinand scored one goal and assisted another in the first quarter to lead the Blast to an early 5-0 lead, and Pat Healey, Pat Morris and Lucio Gonzaga — who returned to the playing field after serving a two-game suspension — added goals to extend the lead the 9-0. Lucas Rodriguez scored the Comets first goal of the match at 11:48 of the second quarter but Carlos Garcia scored just 10 seconds later to extend Baltimore's lead to 11-2.
