A goal from forward Tomasz Zahorski had given the host San Antonio Scorpions a 1-0 lead over FC Edmonton after 45 minutes of play at San Antonio’s Toyota Field on Sunday afternoon.
Forward Sainey Touray looked dangerous to start the match, finding himself in scoring positions multiple times, but not being able to find the killer touch towards goal.
Edmonton looked bright on the counter during the first 45 minutes, almost catching the Alamo City club in the 26th. Forward Corey Hertzog found the ball at his feet on the left corner of the box, and laced a shot towards the corner of the Scorpions goal, that San Antonio goalkeeper, Jeremy Vuolo, had to make a great save on.
The deadlock would be broken in the 40th minute when midfielder Javier Saavedra picked Eddies midfielder Massimo Mirabelli’s pocket on the right wing, and whipped in a cross that met the foot of Zahorski who touched in the opener.
The Polish striker almost doubled the Scorpions lead when he forced another great save from Edmonton goalkeeper Lance Parker just before halftime.
