needed a five-goal fourth quarter to beat the Wichita Wings, 17-11, in a
game Friday night. Ptah Myers led the way with three goals as the Blast fought back from an 11-6 deficit.
Myers scored two goals in the last quarter and J.T. Noone and Max Ferdinand also scored during Baltimore's five-minute five-goal run to end the game.
The Blast got off to a slow start, as two goals by Freddy Moojen, who finished with a hat trick, contributed to a 7-0 Wings lead.
The Blast got goals from Myers and Ferdinand in the first four minutes of the second quarter to cut its deficit to 7-4. Rookie Lucas Roque added a goal seconds before halftime to make it 7-6.
With the Wings leading 11-6 with five minutes left in the game, Noone scored the first of the Blast's five fourth-quarter goals. Lucio Gonzaga's 3-point goal at 11:42 gave Baltimore its first lead of the night, 13-11, and Ferdinand's second goal, a power-play shootout goal, sealed the victory.
