Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is our chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. So during the two San Antonio Scorpions matches on October 4th and October 11th the Crocketteers are asking everyone in our section to wear PINK on these games to show our support of breast cancer patients and to enlighten our love ones to be tested.
We will be selling our neon pink shirt with the Crocketteers logo beginning on September 20th. You can pre-order your t-shirt now and pick it up at the tailgate on Saturday, September 20th, October 4th, or October 11th. If you prefer you can have it shipped to directly to you.

There’s been a buzz lately about the potential for the Oakland Raiders moving to south Texas, possibly giving the Alamo City its second major league franchise. However, don’t forget about the San Antonio Scorpions and their bid to land a Major League Soccer franchise.
Last month, the deputy commissioner of the MLS named Austin, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Sacramento and San Antonio as potential landing spots for the league’s 24th and final expansion team. Among the criteria for landing the spot: A shiny new stadium and a healthy fan base, both of which the Scorpions have.
Some people feel the ideal spot is downtown, and Toyota Field is not downtown, but in northeast San Antonio. However, it is close to I-35, which could attract fans from New Braunfels and Austin.
“If we can do this, what we can bring to San Antonio is very similar to what the Spurs did 42 years ago,” Scorpions owner Gordon Hartman said.

(August 3, 2014) – The San Antonio Scorpions lost their first league road match in 2014 3-1 to FC Edmonton, but maintained first place in the NASL Fall Season standings in spite of the setback. The six straight road wins prior to today’s result set a modern NASL record for consecutive wins away from home.
Edmonton scored the game winner in the 68’ minute off of a free kick delivered by Lance Laing, his second assist of the match. The 30-yard curler found FCE forward Oluwatomiwo Ameobi in the six-yard box and he headed the ball past San Antonio goalie Josh Saunders for the 2-1 lead. The Eddies found an insurance goal 12 minutes later when Daryl Fordyce struck from distance off of a quickly taken free kick by Milton Blanco.
The Scorpions came into the match on the tails of three consecutive shutouts – 303 minutes total – and had not conceded a goal since the first match of the NASL Fall Season against New York. But the streak would only reach 312 minutes as Edmonton scored in the 9’ minute of the match, the earliest goal given up by San Antonio this season. Defender Greg Janicki and Saunders miscommunicated on a cross into the box by Laing and Edmonton midfielder Horace James pounced on the loose ball and punished the defensive mistake.

Impressive play last week provided the first home win of the season for the San Antonio Scorpions. Carolina was held scoreless and the Scorpions were able to put three past the keeper to secure the win. A big signing from this off-season, Eric Hassli scored his second goal of the season. Danny Barrera added the second and last Fall’s super striker, Tomasz Zahorski, added his first goal of 2014.
Ninth place FC Edmonton are in San Antonio today coming off a 2 – 1 win over NASL new-comer Indy Eleven. It was their first win of this Spring season. This will be the third game for the Eddies in the last eight days and the fifth in two weeks. Edmonton lost to MLS side Montreal Impact in the Canadian Championship this past Wednesday.
The Scorpions are in fourth place in the standings, three points behind co-leaders Fort Lauderdale Strikers and Minnesota United FC. There are only four games left in this Spring season sprint to host the Soccer Bowl championship game. Every point is necessary to stay close to the leaders. Continue reading…
