The Stars keeper Matt Van Oekel managed 77 saves in the regular season whilst holding a 1.20 goals against average and also made seven saves in his teams victory over the Islanders on September 30th.
Although never having been beaten by the Stars, matches this season have always been tight and close to the bone with the most recent tie between them ending as most others had in the four match regular season with yet another 1-1 draw.
With three matches ending as 1-1 draws between the two sides, this record was only broken with a 1-0 victory for the Scorpions in Minnesota on August 11th.
The omens look good as the Scorpions head into this weekends semi-final opener in Minnesota, what with a hundred percent non loss record against the Stars and a striker and goalkeeper on fire, the stats bode well for the San Antonio side as they look to add the NASL Championship trophy to the Regular Season Trophy that already sits in pride of place in the newly anointed silverware cabinet.
After this weekends match, the second leg moves to San Antonio which will be played at Heroes Stadium on Sunday October 14th with a 6pm kickoff to decide the finalist for the season..
