The Scouting Report
As the Scorpions dribble deeper into their fall season, forward Omar Cummings appears to be getting stronger with each passing match. With 10 goals so far, the 33-year-old veteran—who led the Colorado Rapids to an MLS Cup in 2010—has the second most goals in the NASL. The Scorpions will again need his golden foot when the Fort Lauderdale Strikers arrive in town for the teams’ first matchup of the season. With just one month of regular-season play left on the schedule, Fort Lauderdale sits 7 points ahead of San Antonio in the league standings, a lead the Scorpions can start chipping away at with a win on October 3. There’s more on the line than just beating an NASL rival or proving which two-word town sounds better, however: as the reigning champs, the Scorpions are also fighting to take Fort Lauderdale’s spot in the playoffs and reclaim the crown.
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. Two years later, they claimed their first league championship. 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 to as large as 18,000, so long as fan support continues to grow and the chair saplings take root in the concrete.
