A Roundup Of The Week July 21-27

[excerpt]

SOCCER—NASL attendance leader San Jose toppled Vancouver 3-1 before another near-sellout crowd (page 14) in a week in which more than half the league's action was intradivisional. In the East, Miami beat defending champion Philadelphia 2-1, as Steve David scored both Toro goals, virtually knocking the Atoms out of playoff consideration. Second-place Baltimore was trampled by Washington 6-0 as two Diplomats, Mori Diane and Leroy Deleon, scored two goals apiece. Another upset and another big gate highlighted Seattle's 5-1 win over West leader Los Angeles. Dallas, which has clinched a playoff berth in the Central, topped Denver 4-0. The Dynamos also dropped a game to Washington 1-0. Northern Division leader Boston split two—beating Miami 3-0 and losing a 1-0 tie-breaker to Rochester—as did Toronto, which beat Washington 2-1 and lost 2-1 to Los Angeles. New York, still in the Northern cellar, defeated Seattle 2-1.
