SOCCER—NASL: 19 games ago, Chicago had a 0-10 record and was in last place in the American Conference Central Division. But on June 19 the Sting acquired Forward Arno Steffenhagen from Hamburg of West Germany's First Division league and has been stinging opponents ever since. Steffenhagen has scored 12 goals in his last 11 games, including two in a 3-1 win over Memphis. Although Philadelphia got an overtime goal from Pat Fidelia to beat the Sting 3-2, Chicago is in second place in the division, 12 points ahead of fading Houston. The Hurricane lost a pair of 4-0 games, to National Conference Central leader Tulsa—with Colin Boulton picking up a league-high 10th shutout—and to Dallas. The Tornado, deadlocked with Rochester in the race for the final National Conference playoff spot, was defeated by Portland 2-1. Minnesota, which trails Tulsa by 1 point, did it again in its match against Memphis. The Rogues won 2-1 when Steve Litt kicked the ball into his own goal—a feat previously performed by teammates Alan Merrick and Ace Ntsoelengoe. Giorgio Chinaglia set a league record for points scored in a season in the Cosmos' 3-1 win over Toronto. Chinaglia had a goal to give him 71 points, breaking the mark established by John Kowalik of Chicago in 1968. New England's Mike Flanagan, who is chasing Chinaglia for the scoring title, tied the record for most goals in a season, getting his 30th in a 2-1 win over Washington. The Diplomats also lost to Rochester, 1-0, with Joszef Horvath scoring the only goal. Oakland, fighting for a wild-card berth, defeated California 2-1, and San Jose won its second straight, 2-1 over San Diego.
