I have owned the D3s which is a wonderful camera but I sold it and went back to a D3 I don't find that much difference and I didn't need the video. However soccer under the lights at a high school game at F/4 may be tricky. It really depends on the lights. Unless you go to the D4 you will probably have to live with some noise.

It's twilight, not fully dark yet.  The sun sets around half-time.  So, not as dark as truly a night game under the lights.  From the one time I tried a true night game (with a D800), I'd agree that you would need f/2.8 or even f/2 for that (and the fluctuating light temperature was horrible) - but that's not the problem I'm trying to solve.  It's not that dark.  It's around ISO 3200-6400 at f/4, 1/800th.
