It figures. Who else? Somewhere it must be written that Branko Segota is the pilot of the Sockers. This team flies when his right foot says it's time. That happened Saturday night at the San Diego Sports Arena. There were 49 seconds remaining in the third quarter of the Game 7 of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinal series with the Dallas Sidekicks. Nerves were fraying. The game was scoreless. The Sockers were on the power play. Socker defender Kevin Crow, situated just outside the red line, passed right to Segota.

The ball took a few crazy bounces off and between Socker defender Kevin Crow and goalie Victor Nogueira. The Ping-Pong action prevented a Dallas player from cashing in on what appeared to be a certain goal. Nogueira grabbed it; Crow turned and made the sign of the cross on his chest. That was Wednesday night. A minute remained in what was to become a 7-4 Socker victory in the first game of the Major Indoor Soccer League playoffs. This conclusion might be drawn: somebody, somewhere, is somehow looking out for the Sockers.

When Socker defender Kevin Crow watched the videotape of his team's May 6 playoff loss to the Dallas Sidekicks, he was aghast. He could not believe the Sockers had lost. "They weren't even in the game," he said. But Dallas won, 5-4. This Sidekick team is kind of funny that way. It doesn't do anything dazzling. The flashiest part of a Sidekick game, at least at home, is when the team is brought to the playing carpet in spanking new limousines. Yet entering tonight's fifth game of the Major Indoor Soccer League semifinals, beginning at 5:35 (PDT)

Picture an MISL game as a chess match, with San Diego Socker Coach Ron Newman and Baltimore Blast Coach Kenny Cooper as masters. And then imagine a game in which the difference between victory and defeat is a lowly pawn unwittingly assuming the role of a major player. That's what happened Thursday when the Blast ended the Sockers' slim hopes of winning the Major Indoor Soccer League regular-season title with a 3-2 overtime victory, Baltimore's fifth in eight tries against the Sockers this season.

Scan the index and flip to the next page, the start of Chapter 12. Chapter 11 was last season. Forget the bankruptcy, the summer in court and the speculative whispers that the plug is about to be pulled on the Major Indoor Soccer League because of several shaky franchises. The Sockers (27-21) are pondering little more than the best way to wax the tireless Dallas Sidekicks, the opponent at 7:35 tonight in the San Diego Sports Arena. It's Round 1, Game 1 of the best-of-seven MISL playoffs.

Socker defender Kevin Crow and assistant coach Johan Aarnio got into a heated discussion during a scrimmage at practice Tuesday morning. "Me and Johan had a confrontation," Crow said. "A lot of words were exchanged back and forth. It's a good sign. It shows we're getting the emotion back." Said Aarnio: "It will be between Kevin and myself, and we'll smooth things out. I don't want to elaborate on it.

Socker Coach Ron Newman has spent the first few weeks of the MSL season trying to figure out where Wes Wade fits into the lineup. After what happened at the Baltimore Arena Friday night, Newman might have a solution. Wade scored three goals, including the game-winner with three seconds left in regulation, to give the Sockers an 8-7 victory over the Baltimore Blast in front of a crowd of 7,423.
