TUCSON, Arizona -- FC Tucson will look to continue its unbeaten run Saturday night when the club hosts Chattanooga Red Wolves SC at Kino North Stadium.
At 2-0-1 in its last three games, FC Tucson has moved to eighth in USL League One, two spots below the cutline a month and a half into the season. At 2-2-2 overall, FC Tucson is above the cutline in points per game.
