Outloook: Call it rivalry weekend for Baltimore. While the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers, the feeling is similar when the Blast plays the Wave. In a rematch of the past two Major Indoor Soccer League championships — both won by Milwaukee — the Blast will try to stay on its early-season roll and get the first jab in against the Wave. In its fast start, the Blast has shown selfless play, with a balanced offense and surprisingly poised performances from rookie goalkeepers Troy Hernandez and William Vanzela. Milwaukee will provide the most significant test for the Blast so far this season. The Wave comes into the game after a 13-11 overtime loss in its home opener against the Missouri Comets in which it relinquished a four-point lead in the fourth quarter. Marcel Feenstra and Nick Vorberg give the Wave the top goalie tandem in the league, and former Blast defender Jonathan Greenfield has been an early spark with a team-high seven points in two games. On Saturday, the Blast takes to the road for the first time this season when it visits the Rochester Lancers. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
