After a rough start to the 2015 season, the San Antonio Scorpions went 3-2-1 in their last six games, does this improve their chances of repeating as NASL champions?

After losing three of their first four games, the Scorpions finished the Spring Season with a 3-3-4 record and seventh in the NASL table. Their 12 points put them eight points behind the undefeated New York Cosmos.

In comparison to last year, the Scorpions have a steeper deficit to close in on in order to raise their chances of winning another championship. After last year’s Spring Season, the Scorpions were in third place behind the Cosmos and Minnesota United. In order to improve on their previous year’s record, the Scorpions must not lose more than one game in the Fall Season.


“There is always room to improve,” Scorpions head coach Alen Marcina said. Even after winning a championship there are ways to improve. We’re confident in where we are going and we’re confident in what we’re going to do in this break into the Fall Season.”

In addition to their need for continued diligent play, the Scorpions have to hope that their competitors, especially the Cosmos and Tampa Bay Rowdies, lose or draw in a few games in the Fall Season.

Still, Scorpions fans should be happy about how their team ended the Spring Season, they are still in great position to defend their championship. The focus payed off in the end and hopefully that impact continues into the Fall Season.

The Scorpions will return to the pitch on June 27 when they welcome Club Sport Cartaginés to Toyota Field for a friendly at 7:30 p.m.
