Go figure--those that shone brightest Thursday in the MSL's 13th All-Star Game at Baltimore were players from the most lackluster team, last-place St. Louis. Storm forward Preki scored two goals and set up five others, and teammate Branko Segota scored three goals and added three assists as the West beat the East, 14-9. The 23-goal performance easily surpassed the All-Star record of 18 in 1985.

The United States defeated Costa Rica, 1-0, Sunday in a crucial qualifying match for soccer's 1998 World Cup. So much for the news. Behind the bare headline, however, there were all sorts of plots and subplots. There was, for instance, striker Eric Wynalda's bizarre withdrawal from the starting lineup, less than 15 minutes before kickoff. The U.S. team's all-time leading scorer took himself out of contention, saying he was not match fit.

Glenn Carbonara and Paul Dougherty, two players who weren't even with the Sockers last season, played vital roles in the club's first victory of the season, a 6-5 overtime decision Friday night over the St. Louis Storm. Carbonara, a defender picked up from the Baltimore Blast on Oct. 23, scored two goals and played well defensively. Dougherty, an Englishman who was with the club two years ago, was signed Oct. 17 but couldn't play until Friday because of visa problems.

Martin Vasquez imagined many times his aspiration to become coach of Chivas USA. He shared that dream two years ago with Shawn Hunter, the team's president and chief executive, and with Antonio Cue, the team's part-owner. He did it shortly after becoming an assistant coach with Bayern Munich. "The very last thing I said to him," Hunter said, "was it would be an honor for me to introduce you as the head coach at Chivas USA." That finally happened Wednesday when Vasquez, 45, was hired as the club's fifth head coach.

After learning that his team's run in SuperLiga would come to an end when his game was over because Tigres defeated the Chicago Fire 2-1, Chivas USA Coach Preki met the news with a polite shrug and pushed forward. He used Saturday as an opportunity to rest key players and tinker with a lineup that has produced more losses than wins recently. The result was a 1-1 tie against San Luis on Saturday in front of an announced crowd of 11,083 at Home Depot Center.

Preki Radosavljevic, last season's most valuable player in Major League Soccer at age 40, will be sidelined as many as four months after breaking his left leg and dislocating his ankle in an exhibition game over the weekend.

Leaning over a fence at the Home Depot Center's track and field stadium Wednesday morning, Chivas USA Coach Preki could only nod his head in agreement. Yes, he admitted, it has been the most challenging of his three seasons in charge of the Major League Soccer team. "I'm still a young coach, and I think this is one of those years that you grow a lot, as a person, as a coach, in many ways," he said.

Pachuca defender Bruno Marioni scored off a disputed free kick and midfielder Gerardo Rodriguez also got a goal as the defending champions beat Chivas USA, 2-1, in the SuperLiga Group B opener Sunday night at Carson. Chivas Coach Preki called Marioni's goal a "changing point" in the game, and was upset with a yellow card given to midfielder Francisco Mendoza preceding the free kick. He thought Mendoza's tackle was clean, but the referee thought otherwise.
