Overview of the 1992 APSL Season - From the American Soccer History Archives

    The APSL continued to struggle with expenses after the 1991 season, and suffered the loss of three teams, Albany, Penn-Jersey and Maryland. What was left was a highly competitive and dynamic league of five teams which completed a somewhat reduced 16 game schedule. Jean Harbor repeated as leading goal scorer, with 13 goals and 30 points. This season saw the return of the shootout to settle ties. A neck and neck race for the regular season championship between the Colorado Foxes and the Tampa Bay Rowdies, ended with the Foxes finishing just two points ahead. In the semifinals, Tampa Bay defeated San Francisco Bay, and Colorado defeated Ft. Lauderdale. The championship was taken by Colorado, who defeated Tampa Bay 1-0. After the season, Miami folded and San Francisco dropped out to join the USISL, leaving the league in a very precarious situation
