MIAMI, Fla. (June 11, 2012) – San Antonio Scorpions forward Pablo Campos, who scored two goals for the Scorpions in a 3-0 shutout win over the Atlanta Silverbacks on Saturday, June 9, has been named North American Soccer League Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.
Campos opened the scoring for the Scorpions on Saturday by firing a shot out of the reach of Silverbacks keeper Daniel Illyes after some clever footwork inside the box to avoid a defender in the 27th minute.
In the 83rd minute, Campos connected on his second goal of the night to put the Scorpions ahead 3-0 with another skillful move in the box. The pair of goals increases Campos' tally to a team-high five goals this season, moving him to second in the league for goals scored.
“It was one the best matches of the year for him,” Scorpions head coach Tim Hankinson said. “The performance by Pablo was super and he made some brilliant moves to help us get an important early goal in the match.”
Campos, who leads the team in goals (5) has been a key component in the Scorpions’ on-field success in the early part of the season. San Antonio now has an eight-game unbeaten streak in NASL competition and is one point behind the first-place Puerto Rico Islanders in the NASL table.
Campos joined the Scorpions prior to this season after posting 12 goals for the Carolina Railhawks in 2011, the second highest total in the NASL. The Rio de Janeiro native also spent two seasons with Real Salt Lake and the San Jose Earthquakes of MLS.
