Outlook -- The third-seeded Blast launches the MISL playoffs at home against sixth-seeded New Jersey, a team it defeated a week ago, 14-6, in Newark. The second game of the series will be played Saturday in New Jersey, with a golden-goal tiebreaker (first score wins in a "mini match" ) necessary if they split the two games. The Blast topped the Ironmen, an expansion franchise, in three of four meetings this season. Dan Antoniuk of the Ironmen has 89 points, fourth in the league and one point ahead of the Blast's Denison Cabral, who is fifth. Cabral's teammate, Machel Millwood, is sixth with 83.
