Time: : 1 p.m.

Outlook: : The Blast goes on the road for the first this season against La RaZa, which boasts the league's top two scorers in D Genoni Martinez (11 points) and former Blast F Carlos "Chile" Farias (nine points). A hat trick from Lucio Gonzaga, who earned league Player of the Month honors for November, helped lead the Blast to a 19-8 home win over Philadelphia on Nov. 21. Having not played in 22 days, the Blast will need to shake off the rust quickly and get a strong defensive effort led by G Sagu to hold off Monterrey, which is coming off a 15-4 win over Milwaukee on Dec. 6.
