The Blast squandered a six-point third-quarter lead and lost the opening game of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals, 22-14, to Monterrey La RaZa on Friday night. The teams will play Monday night at 1st Mariner Arena. If La RaZa win, they would face the Wave in the MISL championship game April 4. If the Blast wins, the teams would play a golden-goal mini-game Monday night for the right to advance. The Blast took a 4-0 lead on goals by Machel Millwood and Billy Nelson and led 8-2 after one quarter, but momentum turned in the second quarter when Baltimore forward Carlos Garcia was ejected from the match for violent conduct.

Of all the unbelievable numbers put up by Brett Favre, the one that should draw the most interest from the Ravens is this: The Minnesota Vikings' quarterback has led 43 come-from-behind, game-winning drives in the fourth quarter. That's a telling statistic for the Ravens, who have lost two straight weeks because they have failed to come through in the final minutes of games. Close games have become a sore spot for the Ravens under coach John Harbaugh. Since the start of the 2008 season, the Ravens are 2-5 (including playoffs)

COLLEGE PARK -- Mervo's bid to capture its first state title in boys basketball came to a crushing halt yesterday with a 70-56 loss to Lackey in the state 3A semifinals at the Comcast Center. One week after upsetting then-No. 2 Walbrook in the 3A North regional final, the No. 8 Mustangs could not muster enough offense to knock off the upstart Chargers of Charles County. Lackey used a slow-tempo offense to maintain possession and took advantage of its size on the defensive end. Mustangs coach Daryl Wade said his team simply did not execute well enough on offense.
