ARENA FOOTBALL—Chicago, which was atop the league standings all season, and Detroit, the hottest team down the stretch, will meet in the championship game next week following victories in the playoffs. The Drive extended its winning streak to eight games by beating Pittsburgh 34-25. Quarterback Rich Ingold threw for 219 yards and two touchdowns as Detroit scored all its points in the first half. In the other playoff game, the Bruisers relied upon their league-leading ground attack and rambled past Los Angeles 29-16. Chicago backs carried the ball a record 24 times for two TDs, both of which were scored by Bill Stone.
