SOCCER—NASL: Western Division-leading Vancouver remained the league's lone unbeaten team, edging Seattle 1-0 on an unassisted goal by Carl Valentine at 65:35. The score was the first yielded this season by Seattle Goalkeeper Joe Corrigan. Tampa Bay moved into first place in the Southern Division, seven points ahead of Fort Lauderdale and Team America with a 3-2 overtime victory over Montreal. Luis Fernando, who entered the match in the overtime period, scored the deciding goal after Montreal's Elvis Comrie tied the score at 2-2 with 2:42 remaining in regulation. Team America got a goal from Alan Green with 18:10 remaining in a 1-0 defeat of Tulsa. Fort Lauderdale snapped a 196-minute scoring drought in upsetting the visiting Cosmos 4-1. Roger Davies, who was picked up by the Strikers after Seattle released the 32-year-old forward, scored Fort Lauderdale's first goal this season and then set up two others by Teofilo Cubillas. The Cosmos avenged that loss the following Sunday, beating Fort Lauderdale 3-2 in overtime.
