RailHawks suffer worst loss in history

News ReleaseJuly 28, 2012 

— The RailHawks’ (6-6-6, 24 pts.) first ever visit to San Antonio is one the team will want to forget.

The Scorpions (10-5-3, 35 pts.) handed the RailHawks the worst loss in club history Saturday night with a final score of 8-0.

Pablo Campos scored four goals, Greg Janicki scored twice, and Esteban Bayona and Blake Wagner each scored once.

San Antonio jumped to an early lead in the first half, when Janicki found the back of the net in the fifth minute of play. Just ten minutes later, Campos, the NASL leading goal scorer, tallied his 12th goal of the season to put the Scorpions up 2-0.

The RailHawks would suffer another blow when defender Austen King was shown a red card for a foul on Campos in the 32nd minute.

The RailHawks’ history of comebacks was not evident Saturday, attempting another rally from behind, but with only with 10 players this time.

In the second half, the RailHawks were unable to control possession and San Antonio took full advantage of the player advantage, scoring 6 goals. Campos scored three, Bayona and Wagner added one each and Janicki scored his second goal of the match.

The RailHawks will return to WakeMed Soccer Park next Saturday at 7 p.m. when they host the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
