Outlook: After opening their first season in the new Major Arena Soccer League with 13 straight wins, the Blast went to the West Coast last weekend and didn't bring much offense in losses to the Las Vegas Legends (5-4 on Feb. 6) and San Diego Sockers (7-2 on Feb. 7). The Blast return home, where they're 7-0, and goes up against an Eastern Division foe it has defeated twice. The Lancers are the one Eastern Division team that has tested the Blast. In Baltimore on Jan. 24, Rochester trailed 9-7 with 6:01 to play before Onua Obasi scored his second 3-point goal of the game to pave the way for a 15-7 Blast win. Mauricio Salles leads the Lancers with 30 goals and seven assists for 37 points — tied for 12th-best in the league. The Blast has already clinched the division crown with five games left in the regular season.
