SA Scorpions on fire after beating Carolina 8-0



After a shaky season start, the Scorpions continued their recovery and remained atop the NASL standings after pulverizing the Carolina Railhawks Saturday at Hero Stadium by a score of 8-0, the most lopsided win in NASL history. In front of 7,186 fans, forward Pablo Campos scored four goals (his personal best in the season) and is the league's top scorer with 15 (five more than Ft. Lauderdale's Mark Anderson).

The Scorpions record is now 10-3-5, which earned them 35 points, two more than runner-ups Tampa Bay Rowdies. The Scorpions next game is 7:30 p.m. Sunday, August 5, against Puerto Rico Islanders. You can buy tickets at or by calling (210) 637-3411. — Enrique Lopetegui
