The San Antonio Scorpions have again gotten off to an awful start as they fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss to Fort Lauderdale at Toyota Field on Saturday night.
The result is horribly disappointing for the Scorpions, who have a plethora of striking options but yet again were outscored by their opponents.
For the Strikers it was their first win in over ten matches after an awful first half season while the Scorpions now sit in dead last and are now three points adrift of second last.
The Strikers dominated the first half, creating plenty of space and plenty of chances leaving the Scorpions scrambling to try to stay in touch.
It took just two minutes for Fort Lauderdale to hit the lead as a free-kick from Mark Anderson found Martin Nunez who easily headed home.
That was just the start for Fort Lauderdale who again found a goal from a set-piece in the _ minute as a Luka Vucko foul allowed Anderson to hit another free-kick that curled in to the net.
It took until the 24th minute for the Scorpions to finally get a shot away as Pat Phelan was able to connect with a volley but it went over the bar.
As the first half wound down San Antonio finally had a solid chance as a corner allowed Tomasz Zahorksi to head home a goal that put them back in the match at half-time.
In the 50th minute the Scorpions continued their momentum and Phelan had another chance but yet again he sent his shot over the bar.
Unfortunately for the Scorpions Phelan was the one seeming to generate their best chances despite having so many strikers.
The second half was much more dull than the first, with both sides showing why they are on the bottom of the table as they struggled to create chances.
