William Vanzela and Lucas Roque named to MASL Team of the Week

 

The Major Arena Soccer League announced on Wednesday that Baltimore Blast goalkeeper William Vanzela and forward Lucas Roque have been named to the MASL Team of the Week. This is William Vanzela’s second Team of the Week Honors and Roque’s first. The Blast goalkeeper won two more games this weekend to improve to 6-0 even though his 190:43 home shutout streak ended Friday against Milwaukee. Vanzela is 34-8 lifetime in his third season with Baltimore.  His 2.33 GAA is more than a goal better than second place Jose Bontti's 3.50 mark. The Blast have the 5th best offense in the MASL and their leading scorer is Lucas Roque, who had four goals and two assists in two wins against Milwaukee.  His 11 goals match his total for all of 2013/14.

 

The Baltimore Blast, one of three remaining undefeated teams in the MASL, passed their latest test with flying colors.   The Milwaukee Wave came to town looking to spoil the Blast's home weekend double dip, but Baltimore emerged with two wins and a 6-0 record. In the first game on Friday, the Blast used relentless high pressure to build an 11-0 halftime lead.  By the time Luan Sales Oliveira scored at 1:40 of the third quarter, the Blast and goalkeeper William Vanzela had accrued a home shutout streak of 190:43, the equivalent of more than three games. The Wave ran their scoring run to four straight goals to cut the lead to 11-8, but the Blast added a late empty net goal to seal the victory, 13-8.

Milwaukee started off better on Saturday and enjoyed a 6-2 lead in the first quarter, a lead that held firm until midway through the third quarter.  Baltimore scored two goals to tie and then scored the first three goals in the fourth quarter for what would become an insurmountable 12-6 lead en route to a 14-10 win.
