FireStingDoug looks back at May 27, 1981:
"The Sting travelled north of the border to Toronto to face the Blizzard at Exhibition Stadium, the site of the 1981 Soccer Bowl. Their six game winning streak came to an end at the hands of the second worst team in the league by a score of 3-1. Derek Spalding scored the only goal on a penalty kick."
"The loss dropped the Sting's record to 8-3. Out of the three losses, two of them were on astroturf. The team really hated the stuff although they managed to beat the Cosmos on turf but managed to lose to one of the lesser teams on the same surface."
