Arbitrator George Nicolau has asked attorneys for Major Soccer League forward Dale Mitchell and Kansas City Comets owner Chris Clouser to hit the law books.After listening to nine hours of testimony in a grievance suit brought by Mitchell, Nicolau said he would make a ruling within 48 hours of receiving the research information, due in his office by next Tuesday.Mitchell, who was traded by Kansas City to the Blast last month, is asking to be made a free agent. He is charging the Comets "fraudulently induced" him to sign and then traded him.Mitchell claims the Comets made promises "above the actual contract, knowing they could not be put in writing, knowing no other team would have a responsibility to abide by a verbal agreement."

TACOMA, Wash. -- The worst news for the Blast last night was that forward Gary Heale was not going to play for the Tacoma Stars.That meant second-year forward Shawn Medved was going to get full shifts for Tacoma in its Major Soccer League game at the Tacoma Dome.Medved, who had two goals Friday to power the Stars to a 4-2 win over the San Diego Sockers, responded by scoring Tacoma's first three goals as the team battled to a 3-3 tie after three periods.And the Stars added fourth-quarter goals by Neil Megson and Carl Valentine to post a 5-4 victory over the Blast, playing with little-used Steve Powers in goal for the second straight game.

TACOMA, Wash. -- Maybe the Baltimore Blast should mail in the game and stay in Baltimore instead of showing up at the Tacoma Dome.Of the past eight games between the two teams here, the Tacoma Stars have won seven.The latest was last night, when the Stars' Gary Heale, stationed at the right post, scored on a cross from Ralph Black with 27 seconds left for a 5-4 Tacoma victory."Obviously, to lose a game on that type of situation is tough," said Blast coach Kenny Cooper. "But a lot are going to be won or lost that way."

To say there is some pressure for the Baltimore Blast to win on the road this weekend would be an understatement.Baltimore has won only one game away from the Baltimore Arena (1-14) since Jan. 4. That includes its only road game of this season, an 8-6 loss to the Wichita Wings on Oct. 25.The rocky road leads the Blast (1-2) to Tacoma, Wash., tonight for a game against the Stars and to San Diego on Sunday for a game against the Sockers.Coach Kenny Cooper said the Blast showed signs of coming together in its home game, a 4-3 victory 12 days ago against Tacoma.
