The blast force was faced away, a tactic I believe that the demolitions use in bomb defusal, to minimize the shockwave force and shrapnel that can propel itself to where the safe zone may be. This is different for IEDs, where the majority of the blast force is faced either up or down, not side to side.

Had the majority of the explosives (assuming that the blast force was facing the direction they were going), the shockwave wouldn't effect them that much as judging by the distance that the shockwave travels and the time it takes to get to the soldiers.

tl;dr, most of the energy seems to have gone in an opposite direction of what the soldiers were traveling to.
