Jean Harbor isn't going to play for the Spirit after all.The Spirit was burned by a clause in Harbor's contract with the Montreal Impact of the outdoor American Professional Soccer League, allowing Montreal to assign him as late as Nov. 1 to another APSL team for the winter season.Harbor played last weekend for the APSL's Los Angeles Salsa in an exhibition against Chivas, a Mexican team. He is assigned to the Salsa through the winter.The Spirit signed Harbor under the assumption he would join the team, as a free agent, after Montreal's final game Oct. 15. But Harbor phoned Spirit vice president Drew Forrester and said he was "beat up and emotionally drained" from the Impact's season and wouldn't arrive until Nov. 2."

Sometimes it seems that if it weren't for bad publicity, the American Professional Soccer League would get no publicity at all.So, recently, when the APSL made possibly the most important announcement of its short existence, it was met with the same media and public indifference that has accompanied its soon-to-be-completed 1991 season.On Aug. 29, the APSL said it had paid the $100,000 entrance fee and two days later would officially join the professional division of the United States Soccer Federation.

The Bays won the regulation game here in Columbia, but delay tactics by the Capitals forced a shootout in the mini-game, where Albany goalkeeper Scoop Stanisic came up perfect for the victory.

Jean Harbor, the star player, was explaining how he helped the Maryland Bays defeat the Baltimore Blast, 2-0, Sunday when Pete Caringi, the ex-coach, walked up and pretended to join in the interview session.A serious and tired Harbor continued to talk for several seconds about how he scored on a head shot and set up another goal with a pass to Brian Haynes, before spotting Caringi.The moment Harbor realized Caringi was present, Harbor broke into a big grin and embraced Caringi.They recaptured the emotion of last summer's championship season, when Caringi, in his first year as Bays head coach, guided Maryland to the American Professional Soccer League championship.
