ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Soccer Stars won their first North American Soccer League victory of the season Saturday night with a 2-0 decision over Montreal Olympics.

The Stars' goals were scored by Jim Leeker and Casey Frankiewicz. Larry Hausmann assisted on both.

Just before the half the Stars' goalie, Joe Right, and Montreal's Ken Wallace were ejected for fighting. Fullback Chris Werstein then moved into the net for St. Louis and both teams finished the game with only 10 players.

St. Louis is now 1-1-1 on the season and Montreal 0-3-0.

In Dallas, Tornado defeated Washington Darts 2-0 Saturday night, the first time the Dallas squad had scored against Washington.

Each team had only 10 men during most of the second half because Tornado Phil Tinney
and Dart Warren Archibald both were ejected from the game for fighting.

Greek import Kirk Apostolidis scored both goals.

Rochester at New York was postponed because of wet grounds.

A goal by Mirk Klamik at the 85-minute mark gave Sudbury City a 1-0 win over Toronto Serbian White Eagles in a League game Saturday night at Toronto.
