Aside from a brief announcement from the coach just beforehand, Wednesday's practice for Blast midfielder Robbie Aristodemo was no different from the others. The 32-year-old veteran was one of the first players to arrive and the last to leave, and in between the coming and going he was his usual persistent self. Aristodemo battled in the corners during a scrimmage, showed a little displeasure when a drill wasn't executed properly and made time to give positive words of instruction to one of the team's younger players.

The Rockford Rampage visited 1st Mariner Arena Friday night as a last-place team with a seven-game losing streak on its back and no chance of playing in the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs. But the Rampage certainly didn't play like a struggling team, giving the Blast all it could handle before dropping a hard-fought 11-8 decision before an announced 7,186. The victory clinched a postseason berth for the Blast (11-7), which was playing without No. 1 goalie Sagu (suspension)

Milwaukee Wave (6-6) at Blast (5-5) Time:: 7:35 Video:: B2TV.com Outlook:: The longtime rival Wave has exposed a chink in the Blast's armor this season, winning the first three meetings, including a 13-10 victory in Milwaukee last Saturday. Tonight will be the Blast's last chance to beat the Wave during the regular season as the home team tries to end a three-game slide and move up in the Major Indoor Soccer League standings. Veteran Giuliano Celenza scored two goals in last weekend's loss, but it was not enough to offset a five-point performance from league scoring leader Marco Terminisi, who had a 3-point goal and 2-pointer in the Wave's win to give him 35 points this season.

College basketball Two Georgetown women's players suspended Two reserve players for the No. 19 Georgetown women's team were suspended for Saturday's 74-65 win over visiting DePaul for their roles in a pre-game skirmish. The school did not say which players were punished, but a check of the official score book before the game indicated that sophomore forward Tia McBride and senior guard Kenya Kirkland were not listed as eligible for the game. McBride, who had played in each of the Hoyas' previous 18 games, averages 2.3 points, and Kirkland, a team captain who had played in 17 games, averages one point.
