|Led by Machel Millwood and Neto, the Blast improved to 8-0 Friday night with a 10-6 win over the visiting Wichita Wings.
The Wings jumped out to a 2-0 lead on an Alex Moseley goal early in the first quarter.
After missing the last two games with a groin injury, Blast forward Lucio Gonzaga returned to the playing field tonight and scored his fifth goal of the season to tie the score at 2-2 before the Wings regained the lead at 4-2 on a goal from Miguel Ferrer.
Just 33 seconds into the second half Max Ferdinand tied the game at 4-4. Tony Donatelli scored with eight seconds left in the third quarter to give the Blast their first lead of the game at 6-4 and Millwood gave Baltimore an 8-4 lead in the first minute of the last quarter. Freddy Moojen cut the Blast lead to 8-6 with a power-play goal late in the game but Neto seal the victory with a power-play goal with less than 30 seconds to go.
The Blast has kicked off their 33rd season of professional indoor soccer in Baltimore with eight straight wins and is looking to match the 1993-94 Baltimore Spirit squad’s record of 10 straight wins to open the season.
