Chicago Wins 12-10; Blast Win Streak Ends at 9

 

The Baltimore Blast's nine-game win streak ended Friday night with a 12-10 loss to the Chicago Soul.  Down 10-0 in the first quarter, the Blast fought their way back but were unable to equalize as time ran out.  Defender Pat Healey led the way with two goals.

The Soul got off to a quick start, scoring early and often to take the 10-0 lead before Healey's first goal put the Blast on the scoreboard with just a minute remaining in the first quarter.  Ephraim Beard scored the first goal of the night, putting the Soul on top 2-0 before Eric Lukin added a three-pointer three minutes later to increase Chicago's lead to 5-0.  Beard scored again, making it 7-0, and Carlos Munoz scored the Soul's fourth first-quarter goal to extend the Soul lead to 10-0 before Healey's goal cut it to 10-2.

Adriano Dos Santos and Adauto Neto scored the only goals of the second quarter, cutting the Soul lead to 10-4 and then 10-6.

After 22 scoreless minutes, the Soul converted on a power play when Lukin scored his second goal of the game to put the Soul on top 12-6.  J.T. Noone ended the third quarter with a goal to put the Blast within four points, 12-8. Healey's second goal put the Blast within two points with less than 90 seconds remaining but Baltimore's sixth-attacker offense was unable to score again.

The Blast is back in action Saturday night in Milwaukee.

The Blast kicked off their 33rd season of professional indoor soccer in Baltimore with nine straight wins, marking the seventh time since the 1992-93 season the team has started with five or more wins.  Friday's loss ended the team's hopes of extending the win streak to 10 games to match the 1993-94 Baltimore Spirit squad’s record of 10 straight wins to open the season.
