The Scouting Report
In two of the final three home games of the season, the San Antonio Scorpions look to sting a pair of NASL rivals and end the season on a high note. In their last meeting with the Atlanta Silverbacks, the Scorpions fell in a hard-fought 2–1 decision, so their October 5 tilt will be an opportunity for revenge. The match against the Cosmos also presents an opportunity for redemption, who also bested the Scorpions 2–1 in their only meeting of the season. Many of the Scorpions players are turning in their best performances of the year late in the season, including striker Hans Denissen, who earned a spot on the NASL Team of the Week on September 17.
San Antonio Scorpions
Founded in 2010, the San Antonio Scorpions wasted no time digging their pincers into the North American Soccer League standings; in 2012, they finished first overall and advanced to the semi-finals. Yet despite their quick success on the pitch, the Scorpions have arguably made a bigger impact off of it: all profits from the team's operations go toward funding Morgan's Wonderland, a colorful amusement park in Longhorn Quarry designed for people with (and without) special needs. The idea stems from team owner, businessman, and philanthropist Gordon Hartman, who builds support for Morgan's Wonderland via the Scorpions' "Soccer for a Cause" program. In 2012, the team's efforts were noticed by Toyota, who committed to sponsoring a new stadium. Completed for the 2013 season, the result of that commitment currently boasts a seating capacity of 8,000 with plans to expand as large as 18,000, so long as fan support continues to grow enough and the chair saplings take root in the concrete.
