Baltimore Blast goalie William Vanzela shares his thoughts on the team's recent championships, what set the team's latest title apart and more.
By Michelle Harris,
With two consecutive championships, how does it feel to be part of a successful sports team like the Baltimore Blast?
It feels great, I can't complain. When you're playing any sport that you love, as a professional, you want to succeed. We've been back-to-back champions -- I've won three of the five since I've been here -- but the reality is, we put in a lot of work to be where we are.
Last season makes nine wins for the Blast. How did this championship game compare to others in the past?
At the championship in Mexico, they scored on us with 18 seconds left in the game. They had won the first game, so that meant they would win the championship if they beat us. We scored back with five seconds left. Then we went into overtime, and then second overtime, and we won. We still can't believe we did that.
