The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have the Battle of the Beltway. Well, the local arena soccer equivalent is the Battle of I-83, between the Baltimore Blast and Harrisburg Heat. And hey, at least the highway in question actually connects the two cities in this instance. League champions the last two years, the Blast are still up to their winning ways, owning an 8-2 record. The high scoring, hits on the board, and family-friendly atmosphere are a good reason to leave the comfort of your heated house, and the team has wisely employed shuttles to get you from the parking lot to the arena. Be sure to stop by Nacho Mama’s in Towson after the game to party with the team.

Game starts at 6:05 p.m., SECU Arena, Towson University, Auburn Drive, (410) 73-BLAST,, $19.50-$35.
