Same old story for Scorpions

[NASL REWIND: Week 5] A coaching change couldn't change the horror show that has been the San Antonio Scorpions' fall season as they lost their fifth straight game and second in a row in stoppage time, this time on the last touch of the game against visiting Minnesota United when a rebound cannoned off Minnesota defender Connor Tobin to send the Scorpions down to a 3-2 loss.

Interim coach Alen Marcina, who had replaced Tim Hankinson earlier in the week, looked set to earn his first point when the Scorpions equalized late in the second half on a goal from Pole Tomasz Zahorski. Like in the 2-1 loss at New York, San Antonio finished the game with 10 men after losing Jeff Jennings to a red card.

-- The Tampa Bay Rowdies remained the only unbeaten team, having come back from a goal down to tie the Atlanta Silverbacks, 1-1. Georgi Hristov's 50th minute penalty canceled out an early Pedro Mendes strike for the Silverbacks.
Friday ...

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers, last in the spring season, won for the third straight game with a 1-0 victory over first-place Carolina and surged up to second place, one point behind the RailHawks. A Darnell King strike in the 52nd minute proved the difference.
