David Bascome’s Baltimore Blast are Champions . . . Again. The team’s ruthless defense, fast-paced offense, and desire to, once again hoist the Ron Newman Cup drove them to a 4-3 victory over the Monterrey Flash at last night’s game in Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
This win is the 10th in franchise history and the third Major Arena Soccer League Championship win in a row. Bascome has 3 titles as a player and 5 as an assistant coach.
Goalkeeper William Vanzela, in his second game back from a groin injury that sidelined him in January, had a standout game with eight saves, including one game-winning protection during the final minutes. It was that performance that lead to Vanzela’s second MVP title.
