Another home game, another home defeat. The 2014 champs are off to a poor start to the 2015 season. This loss hurt more than the opener; How that long ball found the back of the net, I have no idea. That was the dagger that sealed the 2-1 victory for the visiting Indy Eleven.
In my opinion, these first two games were a result of an almost non-existent pre-season & signing players too late for any chemistry to take hold. I saw a lot of hero ball played, especially in the second half. Our guys were taking the Indy defense one-on-one and never looked for other teammates to pass to to attempt better shots.
There were quite a few chances for the Scorpions to take the lead in the first, even a few that were right in front of goal that were somehow cleared by the visitors. The lone bright spot, again, was Omar Cummings who netted his second goal of the season in the 52'.
We looked to take the 3 points until a questionable foul led to an Indy free-kick that was headed in to tie the game in the 64'. Even still, we looked close to securing our first point of the season until a freak 40 yard punt by Indy Eleven somehow got past Kempin to steal all the points for the visitors. No words.
Bottom of the table, no wins, no points. Safe to say the Spring Season Championship is out of reach now.
Our next game is this coming Saturday as we go on the road for the first time this season to take on the 2014 Woosnam Cup winners & new MLS expansion franchise, Minnesota United FC.
Hopefully our fortunes turn around, but we might be in for a long season, Scorpion fans.
