The end result is quite the same, the preparation very different. It is best to leave Zoltan Toth alone with his thoughts in the hour before a Sockers game, but Victor Nogueira doesn't mind chatting and sharing a joke with his teammates. Two years ago, Toth was the MISL's goalie of the year. Last year, when Toth missed more than half the season following foot surgery, Nogueira stepped in, won the award and was selected MVP of the championship series.

Victor Nogueira, who has made a career of jumping in front of missiles fired by soccer players, spent Tuesday dodging questions from reporters. It was an uncomfortable day for the Sockers' goalie--reporters kept asking him about the MSL's Most Valuable Player award, which he won for the second consecutive year. "The questions come faster than the shots," Nogueira said sarcastically when asked about his discomfort. Nogueira didn't like being singled out in what he considers a team effort.

Erik Rasmussen scored the game-winner 8:04 into overtime Saturday as the Wichita Wings defeated the Sockers, 6-5, in a Major Indoor Soccer League game. The loss, coupled with the Dallas Sidekicks' 6-2 victory over the MISL-leading Baltimore Blast, left the Sockers stuck in two ways. It prevented them from clinching second place in the regular-season race and also from making up ground on the Blast. Baltimore leads the league with a 27-18 record with three games to play. The Sockers, who are assured one of five playoff berths, are 25-20, also with three games remaining, while Dallas is 22-22 with four games left.

The Sockers, who thought they went through the first four months of the season without a backup goalie, inadvertently found out they had one on their roster all along. Starter Victor Nogueira, who tied Alan Mayer for the club record for most consecutive starts by a goalie (43) Saturday, was issued a red-card ejection with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Sockers went on to an 8-1 victory over the Blast behind the goalkeeping of defensive runner Wes Wade.

No matter what the sport, concepts change. Baseball, for example, began with the notion that two or three workhorse pitchers could get the job done, hence Jack Chesbro winning 41 games and pitching 454 2/3 innings for the New York Highlanders in 1904. Today, a generation after Denny McLain's 31-victory season for Detroit in 1968, the five-man rotation has rendered the four-man rotation obsolete and made 20-game winners rarities.

They enlarged the goals by 33% and jury-rigged some rules before the MSL season to inject more offense into indoor soccer. Despite the rules committee's best effort, Sockers goalkeeper Victor Nogueira managed to make his goals-against average look like an economic indicator--it kept falling, finally settling at 4.37. It was quite a feat in a league where GAAs were expected to balloon like the budget deficit.

Victor Nogueira was standing in front of the goal during a recent Sockers practice. He appeared to be posing for a statue. His legs spread, knees bent at nearly a right angle, he covered most of the lower area of the goal. His long arms stretched across most of the upper half, his right arm sticking straight out and his left raised above his head as if he were waving. Kevin Crow, Ralph Black, Paul Dougherty and Rene Ortiz took turns shooting the ball at this man, in this pose.

The Sockers, who Friday night secured the best record in the MSL, had one little piece of business to take care of before heading to the playoffs--they had to finish their schedule Saturday night against the Dallas Sidekicks, who own the worst record in the league. The game went into overtime before it was decided. And, yes, it was decided in the Sockers' favor, 6-5. And, yes, Sockers goalie Victor Nogueira was in the nets to record his 31st victory of the season.

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.

Sockers defender Kevin Crow tied a club record for most blocked shots in a game and goalie Victor Nogueira was only three away from the club record for most shots faced with 47. What does that tell you? It's a sign that something was amiss with the Sockers' control style of play. The Dallas Sidekicks, who could only manage 16 shots last time they played the Sockers, took advantage of the situation and turned it into a 7-4 victory in front of 4,873 at Reunion Arena.

Force fields on Star Trek don't work this well. Socker goalie Victor Nogueira shut out the inept Dallas Sidekicks Saturday night at the Sports Arena as San Diego glided to perhaps its easiest victory this season, 7-0. Nogueira made 12 saves and Socker defenders came up with 13 blocks. It was Nogueira's seventh career shutout, the most by a Major Soccer League goalie. Nogueira moved by St. Louis' Slobo Ilijevski, who has six career shutouts. "I did?" Nogueira asked when told of the record.

Socker goalie Victor Nogueira was flat on his back last night as his perfect 4-0 record against the Cleveland Crunch ended. Nogueira slipped and fell as Crunch forward Hector Marinaro scored the game-winning goal in a come-from-behind, 3-2 overtime victory before 5,656 people at the Coliseum. The Sockers (21-25) will try to rebound today when they play at Baltimore at 3 p.m. in a game to be shown on Prime Ticket.
