- 1987: Kevin Smith scored the longest goal in Sidekicks history by launching a shot behind Tacoma 6th Attacker Ralph Black that rolled 150 feet into the goal. This record stood until Sagu threw the ball into the opposing net (bouning the ball inside the 'Kicks red line) from his own goal line in 2000.
