SeaWolves Can’t Break Baltimore Defense in Loss

by Austin David

TOWSON, MD – Heading into a game that needed a positive result, the Orlando SeaWolves found themselves stymied by the Baltimore Blast by a score of 7-1, despite Orlando out-shooting the home side 34-26.

 After keeping the game close for the first few minutes of the first quarter, Baltimore opened the scoring with a goal three minutes in. Orlando put on the pressure, out-shooting the Blast 11-4 in the first quarter, but could not find the back of the net.

The Blast scored twice in the second quarter to go up 3-0, but Osvaldo Rojas pulled one back halfway through to make it 3-1, which would prove to be the halftime score. At the half, Orlando had out-shot Baltimore 22-9.

Orlando continued in the second half to try and score, but the defense for the Blast held firm, along with the 25 saves from Baltimore goalkeeper William Vanzela. Meanwhile, the home side tacked on four more goals in the second half, and the game ended 7-1.

Orlando will play again tomorrow night in Pennsylvania where they will take on the Harrisburg Heat. Kickoff for that game is set for 7:05 PM.
