All-time regular season series: 3-5-5
2015 head-to-head series: 0-1-1
The final game of the season is this Saturday in Blaine, Minnesota. The San Antonio Scorpions have a good shot at finishing the season at the bottom of the combined standings when it's all said and done. It's been a 180° turnaround for the club who won the 2014 Fall Championship and later the Soccer Bowl to become NASL champions. The Loons, however, will be returning to The Championship after a rocky start in the spring.
Minnesota come into this game with the highest scoring offense in the league, scoring over 50 goals, a league record. The Scorpions on the other hand have given up the most goals this season, a combination that could see the scoreboard light up Saturday night. San Antonio had a decent outing against the Cosmos last weekend in their home finale, losing out on a questionable PK & wonderfully taken free-kick. The Alamo City boys did, however, look threatening on the offensive and will try to end their season on a high note.
The series between Minnesota and San Antonio has been heated, to say the least. This "Not A Rivalry" rivalry game will be a great opportunity for the visitors to send their opponent from up north with a loss as they enter the post-season. The last time the Scorpions visited Minnesota, they came away with a 2-2 draw, highlighted by SA's Zourab Tsiskaridze's free-kick goal from 60 yards out.
The Scorpions were able to hand Minnesota a 1-0 loss in Blaine at the end of last season but have yet to get in the win column this season versus the Loons.
The game is this Saturday at 7pm CST in Blaine, Minnesota and can be viewed on ESPN3. #MNUvSAS
