Flash function/event handler issue

I have a function and use a movie clip event to call the function. It doesn't work in Flash 5. I removed the instance names for my text fields and made them variable names (since instance names only work on movie clips in Flash 5). But, it still isn't working. Please take a look and let me know if there is something I'm missing:

function getPlayerByLastName(lastname){
for(var i = 0; i < player.length; i++) {
if(player[i].lastname.toLowerCase() == lastname.toLowerCase()) {
return player[i].firstname +" "+ player[i].lastname +" "+ player[i].team +" "+ player[i].pposition +" "+ player[i].averagepoints;
return "No Match";
searchButton.onMouseDown = function(){
returnField = getPlayerByLastName(nameField);

The only thing in my code that is not included is and array I created.
