Bascome's Baltimore Blast Defeat Kansas City

The Kansas City Comets nearly climbed back from a four-goal deficit but were unable to get the final push as they suffered a 7-5 loss on the road against David Bascomeís Baltimore Blast at the TU Arena.

Two goals from Robert Palmer and Nacho Flores were not enough as the Comets lost their sixth straight game. Phillip Ejimadu got the start in goal before being relived by Nicolau Neto in the second half. Neto was able to help smooth the sails in the back and made seven saves.

The Comets took an early 1-0 lead when John Sosa chipped a ball into a dangerous position towards Robert Palmer. After bouncing off the board to the right of the goal, Baltimoreís attempted header to the goalkeeper ended in the back of the net as Palmer took credit for the goal.

That joyful 1-0 lead was short-lived as about two minutes later the Blast leveled the score with a goal from Victor Parreiras. That was just the start as Baltimore scored again before the first period expired and tagged three more in the second quarter to take a 5-1 lead.

Nacho Flores finally ended Baltimoreís five-goal run with a power play strike 12:12 into the second quarter. The Comets threw their challenge flag towards the end of the quarter after an apparent headbutt from Baltimoreís Deasel. After review, the officials issued red cards to both Deasel and Rian Marques in a decision that left everyone perplexed.

Trailing 5-2 going into the third quarter, Flores struck again as the Comets got back within a pair for the periodís only score. But Baltimore had the answer in the fourth to provide an extra layer of comfort when Jesus Pacheco put the hosts up 6-3.

The Comets werenít finished yet. About midway through the fourth quarter, Zach Reget brought an end to his drought when he sent a canon into the top corner on the power play. Just 16 seconds later, Palmer scored his second of the night to get within one.

The Comets were presented a glorious chance to level the score when Baltimoreís Joshio Sandoval was sent to the penalty box for a two-minute tripping penalty, but KC was unable to finish the job. The Blast pierced the hearts of the hopeful Comets in the final minute to finish the game off at 7-5 to the Blastís favor.
