SASvCar723

The Carolina RailHawks (0W-0T-2L, 0pts) return to NASL action when they travel to San Antonio to take on the first place San Antonio Scorpions (2W-0T-2L, 6pts) on Wednesday, July 23rd at Toyota Field. The match will kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET and it will be broadcast LIVE on  NASLlive.com .

The RailHawks enter week 3 of the NASL Fall Season after losing to current Spring Season Champions Minnesota United FC 1-0 on Thursday night. Both teams had their chances in the first half, but it was Minnesota's Daniel Mendes who scored in the 26th minute. After the goal, the RailHawks kept pushing forward, but they weren’t able to find the back of the goal.

This past weekend, the Scorpions moved to the top of the NASL Fall Season standings after defeating the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, 2-0. Forwards Billy Forbes (NASL Player of the Week) and Tomasz Zahorski scored the Scorpion's goals in the first half.

Wednesday’s match will mark the second time the RailHawks and Scorpions face each other this year. On May 10, 2014, the Scorpions defeated the RailHawks 3-0 at Toyota Field in Texas with goals from Danny Barrera, Thomas Zahorski and former MLS designated players Eric Hassli.

The RailHawks are looking to rebound from their loss last Thursday and start another extended winning streak.

Coaches Quote

“I thought we did very well in Minnesota, but we weren’t lucky enough to get something from the game, so we just have to build from that to win in San Antonio.” – Colin Clarke, RailHawks Head Coach.
