MIAMI, Fla. (July 30, 2012) - San Antonio Scorpions forward Pablo Campos has been named North American Soccer League Offensive Player of the Week after scoring four goals against the Carolina RailHawks on Saturday night.
Campos scored the second goal of the match after winning a ball inside the box and placed a shot past Carolina goalkeeper Ray Burse for his first goal of the game. Campos scored three more times in the second half to help the Scorpions set an NASL record for goals scored in a single match with eight.
The Brazilian forward leads the league in goals with 15. Saturday's performance also marked the first time this season that an NASL player scored four goals in a single match.
"We had an outstanding offensive performance as a team on Saturday, but the star of the night was clearly Pablo with his four-goal output," Scorpions Head Coach Tim Hankinson said.
Campos surpassed his 12-goal total from his 2011 season with the Carolina RailHawks and is five goals away from matching last year’s NASL Golden Boot winner Etienne Barbara’s total from last season, which was twenty.
This is the fourth time Campos has won Offensive Player of the Week this season.
