"As a coach and as players, this is the type of game you want to play in," Blast coach Danny Kelly said. "San Diego is a great team, they've won championships like we've won championships, and to play them here again in Baltimore is huge. We knew it was going to be a great challenge for us and we were up for the challenge. The crowd was great and we played very well. To hold a great team to five goals is a great effort on our part."
