Baltimore Blast vs. Harrisburg Heat
Saturday, November 5, 2016 @ Farm Show Arena 7:05p.m. EST
Setting the Tone:
Baltimore Blast: Opening game of 2016-2017 season.
The Blast look to build off of their 8th championship by starting the year off with an Eastern Divisional matchup in Harrisburg.
Harrisburg Heat: Opening game of 2016-2017 season.
After many offseason improvements the Heat open at home with the defending champs.
Baltimore Players to Watch:
After losing last season’s MASL Defender of the Year Pat Healey, the Blast defense is faced with a hole to fill. Veteran defender Adriano Dos Santos will be one of the players to fill that role along with newly acquired Nelson Santana. With William Vanzela returning in net, Danny Kelly and the Blast look to keep the tradition of having one of the best defenses in the league.
Vini Dantas and Tony Donatelli are returning up top for the Blast. Donatelli led the team in goals last season and Dantas finished second despite missing time due to an injury. Both players look to get off to a hot start in Harrisburg.
The Competition- Harrisburg Heat
New ownership, new coaches, new faces. The Harrisburg Heat had a huge offseason that began with the hiring of Blast hall of fame member, Denison Cabral, at head coach. The Heat have only 5 returning players from last year’s roster.
