It's a rivalry that includes constant jawing, heated moments and long-standing hatred with a sample of admitted mutual respect. Ravens-Steelers? How about Baltimore Blast vs. Milwaukee Wave. The Major Indoor Soccer League doesn't have the billion dollar television contracts or pay its players seven-figure salaries. But it does have a fierce rivalry that will be showcased here Friday night when the Blast hosts the Wave in the MISL Championship Game , set for 7:35 p.m. at 1st Mariner Arena . The two most storied franchises remaining in the five-team league have been going at each other since 1992.

The Blast (7-7) moved to within 1 1/2 games of first-place Monterrey La RaZa and into sole possession of third place - the final playoff spot.

The Blast stayed undefeated by registering their largest margin of victory this season on Saturday night.. In a rather rough-and-tumble match, the home side broke away from Omaha in the third quarter for its second win over the Vipers, 12-4, before an announced 5,742 fans at 1st Mariner Arena . A three-point score by Lucio Gonzaga was the catalyst, giving the Blast a 7-2 lead about 5 1/2 minutes into the second half. It was a fortunate occurence for the Blast as Gonzaga fired a 25-yard attempt from out front which Viper goalkeeper Jose Bontti never saw coming, the result of being screened by one of his defenders.

The Blast's track record this season when a player registers a hat trick is perfect. When veteran midfielder Denison Cabral scored three quick goals in the first quarter against the faltering Philadelphia KiXX Friday night, the question was whether the Blast would make it eight wins with eight hat tricks. The KiXX made a fourth-quarter surge, but it proved too little, too late, as the Blast came away with a 12-8 win in front of an announced 5,324 at 1st Mariner Arena. With the Blast leading, 10-4, at the start of the fourth quarter, the KiXX got two quick two-point goals to cut the lead to 10-8, but Blast forward Max Ferdinand answered with a goal and the home team's defense did the rest for its fourth straight victory.

First-place Monterrey La RaZa scored 16 of the game's first 18 points and handed the visiting Blast its fifth consecutive Major Indoor Soccer League loss, 25-10. The setback was Baltimore's worst since a 19-4 drubbing at Monterrey in March. Shaun David led La RaZa (9-5) with four goals, and Robbie Aristodemo had two for the Blast (5-7). Monterrey's Angel Hernandez and Baltimore's Sagu were ejected in the fourth quarter for their parts in a post-goal altercation.

It took one game plus a little more than a quarter, but the fine play the hometown fans have grown accustomed to seeing from their two-time defending championship Blast team arrived Saturday night against the Philadelphia KiXX. Down by two points in the opening minutes of the second quarter, the Blast offense came to life in a demonstrative way, scoring nine unanswered points in the game's pivotal stretch. In the second half, the home team protected its lead with responsible team play on defense, blanking the visitors for the first 26-plus minutes.

The Blast cemented its hold on first place in the Major Indoor Soccer League on Friday night with a hard-earned 14-10 victory over the Omaha Vipers at 1st Mariner Arena . It was the sixth consecutive win for the Blast (12-3), which can go a long way toward clinching the regular-season title Sunday by beating second-place Milwaukee. Baltimore leads the Wave, which plays the Chicago Riot on Saturday night, by a game. Omaha (7-10) didn't make it easy. It wasn't until veteran Pat Morris scored his second goal with less than four minutes remaining in regulation that the outcome was all but assured.

When Blast assistant coach David Bascome speaks, people tend to listen. Bascome has dedicated much of his time to helping and mentoring at-risk youths in the Baltimore area through his Hope 4 Life motivational speaking program, which is designed to help children avoid negative influences and find ways to make a positive difference in their communities. When he founded the program four years ago in his native Bermuda, Bascome sought to instill hope in kids who were struggling in school, being bullied or were victims of abuse.
