    Merry Christmas, Everyone!

    Since we have had two-2o goal games in the PASL in the last two weeks, the question has been brought to me about what is the all-time indoor record for goals scored in a single game.

    The all-time Division Two record is easy to find: 28, by Tijuana on 1/14/2012.

    To determine the Division One record, I need your assistance. Cleveland scored 52 points at Columbus on 3/15/1997. My normal assumption would simply be to divide the score by 2 and get 26, but the NPSL may have still been using 1 point goals back then. Does anyone have a box score of that match? I would be obliged if I could obtain an accurate "goal count" from that match.

    Sorry, no box score, but NPSL used MPS in 1997.
    Can you imagine a team allowing 52 goals in 60 minutes? I can only think of one...

    I'm 90% sure Marinaro had 12 goals that game and four of them were one-ptrs.

    Two other things that stick out. (1) Tampa Bay Terror scored 33 points a few days earlier. (2) Columbus then only gave up 37 points to Buffalo the next day.

    Side note, I know a lot of you guys wax nostalgic for the original MISL, but I never had that other than ESPN. But boy, I sure do miss the mid-90s NPSL. If I could have two NPSL rules back, I'd take a 1 point shootout opportunity for every blue card, and that a ball kicked out of play would be placed at the spot it was last touched.

    Yay an extra 4 restart and 3 shootout goals per game.

    I know its meant to be derisive, but in reality (and known that it is "artificial") it sure helps to offset the lower quality of play borne by the arrival if MLS in the late 90s. MISL games these days are harder to watch than they were in the mid-90s NPSL. Restarts and shootouts can help to make the games closer and more competitive (and not always, as I remember the Tulsa Ambush, Toronto Shooting Stars and New York Kick, among others) but at least it got something happening.

    At last Saturday's Blast/Wave game, the Wave had two possessions where they had the ball for about two minutes each. Those long "Ole... Ole... Ole... Ole..." possessions are more tolerable if something (anything) was happening before and after those possessions to maintain interest. Too many games these days are like watching a Yankees/Red Sox 3-2 game that goes 4 hours.

    And as a preemptive block to those who can't wait to misconstrue my remarks... I KNOW this isn't going to save the sport. Nothing to do with rules or scoring system will. It is strictly my opinion as it relates to my enjoyment of the games I attend.

    I'll be honest. I was not a fan of a lot of those silly NPSL rules. Like the 1-point power play goals and the over-and-back rule. I personally think indoor soccer is better without them.

    1 point power plays and 1 minute power plays were lame (which is why I had omitted them). If the over-and-back was proper - GK or field player plays it over the line, then it can't go back - I wouldn't have minded it. But it was enforced due to deflections and when possession was never in the defensive quarter of the field... I didn't like that.

    I had this game on tape. After looking for it, I believe this was one of the tapes my mother taped stupid tv crap over at the time. *sigh*

    So 28 goals for Cleveland and 9 goals for Columbus. Is 37 the record for total goals by both teams in one game?
