A Roundup Of The Week May 13-19


SOCCER—Philadelphia grabbed the Eastern division lead after a 1-0 win over Denver that was impressive, not for the score, but for the NASL record crowd of 24,093 at Veterans Stadium. Baltimore was idle for the week but remained only one point behind Miami after the Toros topped the New York Cosmos 2-1 and the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-2, both tie breakers. Dallas still led the Central division despite a 3-2 tie-break loss to Los Angeles and a 4-1 beating by Washington. Three of those Diplomat goals were scored by Striker Leroy Deleon, much to the delight of the 11,887 fans in RFK Stadium. Elsewhere, San Jose took a tie breaker 3-2 from St. Louis and Seattle dumped Denver 4-0.
