The Blast Beat Syracuse 27-13; Improve to 14-4

 

Led by Lucio Gonzaga, the Blast defeated the Syracuse Silver Knights, 27-13, Sunday afternoon to improve to 14-4 on the season.  Eight Baltimore players scored in the win including three goals from Gonzaga and two each from Machel Millwood and Adriano Dos Santos.

The Blast came out fast, scoring four goals in the first four minutes of the game to take an early 8-0 lead.  J.T. Noone extended the lead to 10-0 before the Silver Knights' Andriy Budnyy got Syracuse on the scoreboard with a three-point goal.  Syracuse's Neto scored a power play goal to end the first quarter and cut the Blast lead to 10-5.  Baltimore's team captain, Mike Lookingland, opened the scoring just 48 seconds into the match and Millwood, Ptah Myers and Gonzaga followed suit in the next three minutes.

The teams played more than 14 scoreless minutes in the second quarter before Tony Donatelli extended the Blast lead to 12-5 just 23 seconds before halftime.

The third and fourth quarters were similar to the first with the Blast surging ahead with goal after goal.  Baltimore opened the second half with four quick, the first coming from Dos Santos at 2:35.  Millwood and Gonzaga each added their second goals of the game and rookie Marco Mangione scored a three-pointer to give the Blast a 21-5 lead after just six minutes.  Syracuse's Neto scored his second goal of the game, with just seconds to go in the quarter, to cut the Blast lead to 21-7.

The teams combined for six goals in the final quarter with Silver Knights adding five quick points to cut the Blast lead to 21-11.  Dos Santos and Max Ferdinand scored the next two goals and Gonzaga completed his hat trick in the 10th minute.
