The Sockers, four-time indoor soccer league champions, were almost beaten Thursday night by a very sneaky Ebert. Don Ebert, the St. Louis Steamers' all-time leading scorer, was in the right place at the right time for three goals in the Steamers' surprisingly close 7-6 loss to the Sockers in the San Diego Sports Arena. Pretty sneaky, that Ebert. His first goal came on a back-kick, a shot that beat Sockers' goalie Jim Gorsek. Gorsek never even saw him.
