It might not be a must-win situation but FC Tucson Women (3-0-2) would be in a better position with three more points on their ledger and that can be accomplished Friday night when Atomic City FC (2-3) visits Kino North Stadium at 7 p.m.
Tucson leads the Desert Conference with 11 points with three matches left and Arizona Arsenal (3-1-1) is in second place with 10 points. The team from Mesa lost to SC del Sol Wednesday night 1-0 in a match the team needed to jump ahead of Tucson. SC del Sol (3-1-1) is now in a tie for second place with 10 points.
SC del Sol visits El Paso Surf (0-6) on Saturday which adds to the importance of Tucson’s match Friday night.
Tucson hosts Arizona Arsenal on July 1 and SC del Sol hosts Tucson on Jul 9 to end the regular season. Arizona Arsenal and SC del Sol will face each other again on July 2.
