Baltimore Blast Looking for Back To Back Championships

Featured, Sports and Bets — March 13, 2014 at 9:33 pm by

I love ALL Baltimore and local sports. From The Big Birds of the Ravens and Orioles, to the Ironbirds,  the Frederick Keys,  the Maryland Terps, the Morgan State Bears, and the Towson Tigers. You name it, and if it’s from Maryland,  I support it.  That brings us to soccer.  Quietly, one of the most DOMINANT teams in Baltimore right now is indoor soccer powerhouse, the Baltimore Blast.

The Blast, who hold Seven Championships, including last season’s, are in the Finals again this season. In one of the more competitive seasons in recent MISL history, the Blast propelled their way back into the finals with an instant classic win at the Baltimore Arena Tuesday night.

The MISL playoff system is based on a two game series, and a team has to win both games.  If not, and the games are split, there is a third, 15 minute game, which is played immediately after game two. That’s where the Blast found themselves Tuesday evening against the Syracuse Silver Knights after losing the second game of the series at home. There was never a doubt for the Blast, though. They won Game Three with a Penalty Kick goal from veteran Mike Lookingland, and a Web Gem finish from Marco Mangione.

 The Blast take on the Missouri Comets for all the marbles starting Friday night at 8:30PM.  That Friday night Game One is on the road in Missouri. The Blast will then come home for Game Two at the Baltimore Arena, Sunday at 5:05 PM.  If you haven’t been to a game yet, you don’t know what kind of action you’re missing.  You can catch Friday’s game live online at http://www.baltimoreblast.com/ , and you better have your butt in the beer garden when the confetti comes down at home here on Sunday night.

Here’s Tuesday’s game.  Go to the 1:28:30 mark and check out Parkville’s own Marco Mangione’s epic, series winning goal.

 

 

That goal is a testament to how exciting the indoor game can be. In a matter of seconds a team can turn from defense to offense and change the course of the game” – Marco Mangione on a big goal, and a bigger win for the Baltimore Blast.
