The Blast had a difficult time finishing off scoring chances for much of Saturday's game against the visiting Wichita Wings, enabling them to hang around long enough to make it appear that they might leave 1st Mariner Arena with a win. But Blast rookie forward Marco Mangione changed all that with one poised touch early in the fourth quarter. Shortly after the Wings tied the game with six straight points, Mangione skillfully chested a ball to his left foot and then perfectly placed a volley to the near post to give the home team the lead back.

The Blast will play its indoor soccer this winter in a new league with a familiar name. Coinciding with the dissolution of the 17-year-old National Professional Soccer League, the launch of the new Major Indoor Soccer League was announced by commissioner Steve Ryan at a news conference yesterday in Milwaukee. The new league will be owned by individual team operators who each hold a financial stake in the league, a single-entity setup similar to that used by Major League Soccer and the Women's United Soccer Association.

Blast veteran forward Mark Thomas, who missed Saturday's 16-7 loss at Cleveland with a concussion, remains questionable for this weekend. Yesterday, coach Kevin Healey said Thomas - hurt in the second half of Friday's home win against Milwaukee - was still experiencing headaches, and the team will know more by tomorrow about his availability. The Blast travels to Wichita on Friday and returns home Saturday to play Harrisburg. Against Cleveland, newcomer Jeff Clarke, a 23-year-old defender picked up in the re-entry draft when the Edmonton franchise folded, played his first game in a Blast uniform.

For the first time this season, the Blast had to watch tape from a loss, having to figure out what good might come of it.The answer -- humility.The Blast (4-1) had rolled off four straight victories before losing, 16-14, at home to the Wichita Wings (4-2) on Saturday night."It's more humbling that we did lose," midfielder Danny Santoro said. "Now, we don't come in cocky or overconfident. I think it's better to get it out of the way early."A lot of us were sleeping, including myself," Santoro said.
