INDOOR SOCCER—MISL: There are Christmas seals and Easter seals, and then there's Elson Seale, forward for Kansas City, which shared first place in the West with San Diego. His three overtime goals sealed the fate of Eastern leader Baltimore (7-6), St. Louis (4-3) and Memphis (6-5). While Seale was busy nudging shots into other teams' nets, Goaltender Chris Vaccaro of Cleveland occupied himself by keeping them out. He made 24 saves in a 6-4 win over Wichita—and knocked in a goal of his own, only the second by a goalie in league history.
