It's that time of year again in the American Professional Soccer League, when goals become as precious to a team as Burt Reynolds is to the National Enquirer. The playoffs are two weeks away and five of the league's seven teams still are in position to claim the four post-season slots. The fourth-place Salsa is one of them and, with a final-week schedule stacked against it, the only thing left for one of the APSL's newest entries is to keep kicking and hope something hits the nets.

And true to form Saturday night, the high-scoring Brazilian provided his best by saving it for last.
