It's easy to understand why the Blast might have taken the Pennsylvania Roar lightly, given its slow start Friday night. Going into the game, the Blast had beaten the Major Indoor Soccer League expansion team in their first four meetings by a combined margin of 90-7, including two rare shutouts. Maybe it was because of a 12-day layoff in between games. Or maybe it was the early start time - 7:05 p.m. instead of the typical 7:35 p.m. at Baltimore Arena - that made the Blast's offense a no-show for more than a quarter.

The Blast has had many offensive stars come and go over the course of winning six professional indoor soccer championships since 2003, but one thing that never leaves is the team's strong commitment to defense. This season, the defending Major Indoor Soccer League champions have been at their frugal best.  Heading into the last home weekend of the regular season, the Blast is 13-3 and in second place in the MISL, assured a playoff spot with four games remaining. The team's tidy play on defense (the Blast has yielded 79 points in 16 games, a smidge under 5 per game)
