RailHawks lose 2-0 in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (July 4, 2013) – The RailHawks traveled to Texas during the midweek to take on the San Antonio Scorpions for the final game of the NASL Spring Season. After a closely contested match, the RailHawks conceded a goal in each half to lose 2-0, falling just short of the NASL Spring Season title and finishing 2nd on the Spring Season standings.

The recently hot San Antonio Scorpions jumped on the board late in a Carolina-dominated first half, with their leading scorer Hans Denisson slotting home a tap-in in the 45th minute. RailHawks goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald made a save just prior to Denisson’s strike, but couldn’t hold on to the ball and deflected it into the San Antonio forward’s feet. The rebound goal led the Scorpions into the locker room ahead 1-0, despite Carolina producing the majority of the chances in the half.

RailHawks head coach Colin Clarke made the necessary adjustments in the second half to provide more of an attacking threat, but he and the RailHawks’ efforts were all for naught after the woodwork denied chance after chance for Carolina’s attack. Cesar Elizondo and Brian Shriver looked particularly threatening moving forward, creating several near-opportunities by cutting inside and firing from 15-20 yards out.

Yet despite the constant pressure, it was the Scorpions who claimed the second and final goal of the evening, when their forward Hans Denisson put away his second goal in the 87th minute on a San Antonio counterattack. The match finished with a score line of 2-0 shortly thereafter.
