OMAHA, Neb. - FC Tucson extended its unbeaten streak to seven games by defeating Union Omaha 1-0 at Morrison Stadium on Saturday night.
In-form midfielder Charlie Dennis got Tucson off to a flying start, burying a spot kick for the second game in-a-row to put the visitors in front early. Omaha thought it had the equalizer later in the first half when Evan Conway put the ball in the net, but the assistant referee's flag came up for offside.
Los Búhos were then given a penalty kick of their own and an opportunity to level the score, but Damià Viader's attempt clipped the post and stayed out in the 83rd minute. From there, Tucson would hold on to claim the three points, handing Omaha its first home loss of the season.
Up next for Omaha is a trip to take on South Georgia Tormenta FC on Friday, while Tucson will return to action at home against North Texas SC on Saturday, October 2.
