CLEVELAND - An old nemesis helped beat the Blast yesterday as the Cleveland Force managed a 4-2 victory in a preview of a first-round Major Indoor Soccer League playoff series. "This one had playoff intensity," Blast coach Bobby McAvan said. "You see a 4-2 score and think it was boring and ugly, but it was anything but that." Indoor soccer legend Zoran Karic, who came out of retirement last week at the age of 41, set up both Cleveland goals in the third quarter as the Force (18-16) opened a two-game lead on the Blast (16-18)

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -- Don't isolate Yugoslavia.That was the plea made yesterday by the country's leading businessman during a wide-ranging one-hour interview with U.S. journalists.Bogoljub Karic said that to sustain peace in the Balkans, international reconstruction aid should pour into all parts of the region, including Serbia, Yugoslavia's dominant republic, which is being treated as an outcast by the West."The economic aid and international acceptance of Yugoslavia would help the international forces implement this peace in Kosovo," said Karic, a Serbian government minister who is within the country's ruling circle.

From the moment they arrived, the Cleveland Crunch's Hector Marinaro and Zoran Karic had a special impact on the National Professional Soccer League.It was the 1992-93 season, and Marinaro and Karic finished one-two in the league scoring race with 248 and 222 points, respectively. No one else finished within 40 points of them.The pattern hasn't varied much since, except that once it was Karic-Marinaro. Fans who turn out for the NPSL All-Star Game today at the Baltimore Arena will see two of the best indoor players in history and, as Cleveland general manager Al Miller said, "a one-two punch like nothing else."

They play so well together because they've been together so long."This, in fact, is the seventh season Marinaro and Karic have been together.

Until almost the very end of the month, the Spirit's Bo Vuckovic looked like a strong candidate for National Professional Soccer League Player of the Month.But last weekend, his bid was reduced to tatters. The Spirit, which won four of its first five December games, lost to the Philadelphia Kixx and Cincinnati Silverbacks. And Vuckovic, who finished with 31 points this month, was restricted to two in the final two games.As a result, the Cleveland Crunch's Zoran Karic or the Detroit Rockers' Dennis Brose is likely to win the award.
