Paul Dougherty, Fim Gabarra and Waad Hirmez each scored two goals Thursday night to lead San Diego to an 8-4 Major Soccer League victory over the Tacoma Stars.

Tacoma entered the game with the MSL's best record at 12-7, but left with a two-game losing streak as the Stars' Western Division lead was trimmed to one game over St. Louis and 11/2 games over the Sockers.
