The Blast kicked off their 33rd season of professional indoor soccer in Baltimore Saturday night with a fast-paced, high-scoring 23-13 win over the MISL’s newest team, the Chicago Soul.  Led by newcomer Tony Donatelli, the Blast fought back from an early 7-2 deficit for the win.

Former Blast player Carlos Farias didn't waste any time, giving the Soul a 3-0 lead after just 18 seconds of play.  Donatelli, who recorded a hat trick in the first quarter and added an assist late in the game, scored his first goal in the second minute to cut the Soul lead to 3-2 before Farias scored two goals to complete his hat trick and extend Chicago's lead to 7-2.  The Blast dominated the rest of the quarter as Donatelli scored his second goal, Machel Millwood knocked in a goal, Lucio Gonzaga gave the Blast an 8-7 lead and Donatelli's third goal put the Blast ahead, 10-7. 

After an eight-goal first quarter, the second quarter featured just one goal, also by Farias, to bring the Soul within one point, 10-9.

The third-quarter resembled the first quarter, fast-paced and high scoring as the Blast added five goals and the Soul scored two.  Last year's leading scorer Max Ferdinand scored his first goal of 2012-13 to extend Baltimore's lead to 12-9 before Stephen DeRoux scored a three-pointer to make it 15-9.  Robert Gallo scored next, cutting the Blast lead to 15-11 but Mike Lookingland and Adriano Dos Santos scored back-to-back goals, making it 19-11 before Bato Radoncic scored the Soul's second goal of the quarter.  Pat Healey scored the last goal of the quarter to the give the Blast a 21-13 lead heading into the final period of play.

Millwood scored the lone goal of the fourth quarter, to bring the score to 23-13.
