FAIRFAX, Va. -- The Miami Toros, led by David Proctor, defeated the Washington Diplomats 3-1 Friday night in a North American Soccer League game between eastern division contenders.

Proctor opened the scoring for Miami in the 24th minute with a difficult 10-yarder from the right side.

Eight minutes later, Ronnie Sharp lobbed a pass just inside the penalty area to Proctor, who headed it in.

Steve David scored his 10th goal of the season, the league high, at 38:40 into the game.
