Wichita Wings midfielder Chico Borja has been absolved of wrongdoing in the Jan. 11 collision that has sidelined Baltimore Blast goalkeeper Scott Manning with a sprained right knee.Major Soccer League commissioner Earl Foreman said yesterday, "I did not find conclusive evidence that Chico Borja tried to intentionally injure Scott Manning."The decision by Foreman didn't sit well with Manning and Blast owner Ed Hale."It's very consistent with the way the league is run," Manning said sarcastically.

The news just keeps getting worse for the Blast.The roster has dwindled to 12 healthy field players, and yesterday defender Mike Stankovic learned he has been suspended for one game and fined an undisclosed amount, thought to be about $1,000, for a punching incident in Tacoma against Star Steve Kinsey.The Blast is appealing the suspension, thus keeping Stankovic eligible for Saturday's game in San Diego and Tuesday's game in Tacoma.Other bad news concerns second-year defender Joe Barger, who will be out for 10 days with a severe neck strain suffered in St. Louis a week ago. Also out for 10 days is defender Mike Reynolds.

It might be the first time Blast goalkeeper Scott Manning has fallen behind a Socker and been able to smile about it.Tied with San Diego keeper Victor Nogueira with one shutout apiece, Manning dropped one back in last night's 4-0 Sockers victory, but gained something much more important -- a Cleveland Crunch loss.For first-place Cleveland (22-20), 2 1/2 games ahead of the slumping Blast (19-22), it was the first loss in 11 games.Nogueira's eighth career shutout was his second this season.

Practice was finished, but veteran Mike Stankovic and second-year man Angelo Panzetta worked on."I think Mike has adopted Angelo," said Blast coach Kenny Cooper. "I like him to work with our young players. It's like having a third coach in many ways, and it is making a difference in the way we play."Stankovic has had a lot of roles with the Blast through the years. He has been an enforcer, an intimidator, a clutch scorer and, from time to time, a finesse player.In a memorable moment Jan. 5 against St. Louis, he was also something of a wizard, hitting a shot from an angle that would have made Houdini blink.
