Former Blast goalkeeper Scott Manning met with Wichita coach Roy Turner today and signed a 15-day contract with the Wings."To be honest, it feels kind of funny," said Manning, 34. "You don't play in one city for 10 years and just pick up and play somewhere else without it feeling funny. It's almost like rooting against the Orioles."The Wings, 13-11, and in second place in the Major Soccer League standings, became in need of a goalkeeper Saturday when Kris Peat suffered a strained anterior capsule tendon.

Shawn Boehmcke is a walking contradiction.Start with the nickname, Bones. It was a natural when he arrived at Loyola College three years ago, but maturation and the weight room have built a 6-foot-4, 185-pound frame that fills a soccer goal quite nicely. Many of his classmates are preparing for business careers, but Boehmcke is an elementary education major who is spending the semester doing his student teaching.He is completing one of the best statistical careers by a Division I soccer goalie, but he's never gotten much attention outside the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

The American Heart Association's Celebrity Golf Classic attracted an exciting lineup from the world of athletics, thanks to the persuasiveness of Jim Finch, Tom Matte and Scott Manning. Thirty-six teams teed off at Chestnut Ridge Monday and the winning teams were led by Stan White, Scott Manning and Boog Powell.Manning, former Blast goalie now playing with Dallas, is certainly a man who lives up to a commitment. As a matter of fact, he told Dallas when he began playing for the team that he had to be in Baltimore on April 27, and indeed he flew in Monday morning justin time to jump into his golf cart.

The race is wide open for the MSL All-Star goalkeeper position in the Eastern Division. Here's how the division's top keepers size up the competition.* SCOTT MANNING, Blast: "You know my feeling about stats. To use a goals-against average is a joke. I look to see if a goalkeeper is doing the things he needs to do to win -- timely saves, calling timeout, setting his defense. Kris Peat doesn't impress me. I like Mike Dowler, even though we've beaten him. [Jim] Gorsek never plays away from home.

Goalkeeper Scoop Stanisic was still a member of the Baltimore Blast yesterday, but his days appeared to be numbered.Blast coach Kenny Cooper continued his search for another goalkeeper, apparently to handle Stanisic's backup role until starter Scott Manning returns from a sprained left ankle.Cooper refused again to name any goalkeeper he is seeking to sign."At this point, all I can say is we're still having conversations [with prospective goalies]," said Cooper. "We haven't come to terms with anybody.

Goalkeeper Scott Manning is coming home to the Baltimore Arena tonight, where he hopes to re-enact a winning performance from the past."What's important to me is that the game is fun again," said the former Blast keeper, who will be in the net for the Wichita Wings at 7:05. "But it's going to feel strange to play in the Arena and not be playing for the Blast. I'm sure I'm going to go to the wrong bench."Manning, who joined the Wings on a 15-day contract earlier this month, helped Wichita beat the Blast, 5-4, in double overtime Sunday.

The Wichita Wings might have considered it a moral victory. But they didn't. And the Baltimore Blast might have been unhappy with a 7-6 victory against a team playing without its only true goalkeeper. But it wasn't."We should have won this game," said Wings defender Kim Roentved. "This was a great chance for us to show we could play our way through adversity."Said Blast defender Iain Fraser: "We've been on the other side in dodgy games like this that we should have won and didn't. We knew this would be a tough game.

St. Louis coach Don Popovic said late last night he has a hard choice to make -- but is delighted."All my coaching career I have been blessed with goalkeepers," he said. "I've never had to think much about them. First it was Shep Messing and then it was Zoltan Toth."Now I have to decide on a new one and I am blessed again in that I must choose between two of the best -- Scott Manning and Jim Gorsek."Manning, 34, of course, played the last 10 years with the Blast and is recognized as one of the premier keepers in the league.
