Soccer -- Pride Beats Seadogs In Fourth -- Late Surge Lifts Portland To 7-5 Win Over Seattle
PORTLAND - Abraham Rubio's go-ahead goal with seven minutes left sent the Pride to a 7-5 Continental Indoor Soccer League victory over the Seattle SeaDogs (11-5) and gave Portland its fourth consecutive victory.
Franklin McIntosh and Jeff Betts each scored two goals and an assist to lead Portland (8-9). Betts has at least one point in his past 14 games and has scored a goal in 11 consecutive games.
Seattle's goals came from five different players, including Bruce Broughton, who also had an assist.

James, a defender who comes from the Carolina Dynamo of the A-League, said he wanted to play with his brother again.
