Edmonton is 1-1-0 on the season and currently sit at the top of the Fall table with four points. They are coming off a 1-1 draw against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers last week and will be playing their third match in ten days.

The pair opened the Fall season as the Scorpions fell 0-4 on July 5. Lance Laing, Jalali and Hanson Boakai all got goals in the win for Edmonton. Two San Antonio players were ejected from the match with red cards.

Overall, this will be the 14th meeting between the two teams. San Antonio 6-3-4 all-time against Edmonton.
