The Philadelphia KiXX Dance Team and the I-95 Rivalry 

Posted by James at 2:10 PM ET

The Philadelphia KiXX and the Baltimore Blast are long-time rivals dating back to the days of the old NPSL. The rivalry was renewed this past Saturday when the KiXX hosted the first place Blast at the Wachovia Spectrum.

The Blast players weren't the only one who made the trek up I-95. Baltimore Blast Cheerleader Director Liz Guaraldo and ten members of her squad also made the trip to cheer on their team.

Now the players on the field are competitors, but not the Dancers. The squads were making new friends, and there's the possibility of a KiXX Dance Team visit to a Blast game in a couple of weeks.
