Multiple games in less than one week's time was commonplace in the old NASL. FireStingDoug reflects on a match with the Seattle Sounders on May 23, 1981.
"Seattle came to town and paid a visit to Comiskey Park where 10,929 fans saw the Sting emerge victorious 3-1. The Sounders led the league in total points in 1980 and were once again a solid playoff contender in 1981 but the Sting continued their high energy style and outhustled Seattle. Arno Steffenhagen scored a brace and Karl-Heinz Granitza scored the other for the win."
"Paul Cofee started in goal for the first time in 1981 but Pato Margetic injured a hamstring that would keep him out of action for five games. The win was the Sting's sixth consecutive victory as they moved to the top of the league with an 8-2 record."
