Blast Crush Comets 27-13 in Final Road Game

 

For the second time this weekend, the Blast battled back from a first-quarter deficit to earn a victory on the road. Seven different players scored and Ptah Myers and Adauto Neto recorded hat tricks as the Blast improved to 19-5 with just two regular season games remaining.

Missouri's Cristiano and Leo Gibson opened the scoring to put the Comets on top 5-0 before the Blast mounted their first comeback of the game to tie it at 5-5. J.T. Noone scored a three-pointer and Max Ferdinand added a goal a minute later to make it 5-5 after one quarter.

Neto gave Baltimore its first lead of the game, 7-5, in the third minute of the second quarter before Cristiano's second goal tied it up at 7-7. The Comets regained the lead, 9-7, on a goal from Ramone Palmer but Neto's second goal of the game tied it for the third time and Myers' first goal gave the Blast an 11-9 halftime lead.

Lucio Gonzaga and Stephen DeRoux scored early in the second half to extend Baltimore's lead to 15-9 and Neto's third goal put the Blast on top 17-9. The Comets fought back, scoring the next two goals, and chipped away at the Blast lead to make it 17-13 after three quarters of play.

Baltimore opened the final quarter with a man advantage and Gonzaga took advantage, knocking in a power play goal to make it 19-13. Myers added two goals in the final quarter while Ferdinand and Pat Healey also scored.
