BALTIMORE, Maryland (June 5, 2019) - The Blast and Vice President of Soccer Operations Mike Conway have announced today that they have signed forward Andrew Hoxie to a two year contract. Per league and team policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Andrew Hoxie, 33, enters his fifth season with the Blast looking to carry his postseason scoring form into the 2019-20 season. Hoxie registered 19 points in 21 regular season appearances last season, bringing his Blast career totals to 87 points in 79 games. Hoxie has been very consistent throughout his Blast career, recording double digit goals every season in a Blast uniform.

Hoxie’s biggest contribution this season was his four point performance against Utica City in Game 2 of the 2019 Ron Newman Cup Divisional Round. After three goals and one assist, his efforts pushed the Blast past Utica City into the mini-game, where he scored the game-tying goal in the 2-1 win. He led the MASL in points this past postseason with seven in four games.

Coach Danny Kelly stated "We're very happy to have Andrew back for another 2 years. He was a key piece for us in winning 3 championships in a row from 2016-2018, and was also instrumental in the playoff win versus Utica City this past season. There's more to come from Andrew Hoxie in a Blast uniform." Andrew Hoxie re-joins Jereme Raley, Jamie Thomas, Juan Galvis, and Sam Guernsey, who have all committed their future to the Blast.
