Another look back at 1981 courtesy of FireStingDoug:
After losing to the Sounders 1-0 on June 17, the Sting travelled to Portland to face the NASL's version of the Timbers. Powered by goals from Paul Hahn, Pato Margetic, Arno Steffenhagen, and Dave Huson the 4-2 victory ended the team's three game losing streak.
The game marked the second to the last time a first division club from Chicago would play in Portland until the Fire took the field there this season.
In case you missed it, Episode 3 of Touchline TV includes an interview with Frank Klopas in which he lists listening to the Chicago Sting play in the 1981 Soccer Bowl on the radio as one of his favorite soccer memories.
