COLORADO

Offseason moves paid dividends for the Rapids, who made the playoffs after missing out in '96. Five of their six leading scorers were players picked up in the offseason, while leader Chris Henderson doubled his '96 point total.

COLUMBUS

The Crew's scoring slipped badly, but it made up for the lack of punch with strong play in goal again from Brad Friedel, the '97 MLS goals-against average leader. Over two seasons, he has 12 shutouts in 36 games, or one every three games.
