Forward Madison Earns a Point in Scoreless Draw with Union Omaha
Forward Madison FC drew 0-0 at home for a second straight week on Sunday, failing to break the deadlock against Union Omaha. The result means the Flamingos still haven't lost a home game this year, but remain seven points away from a spot in the USL League One Final.
The first half featured a bevy of chances for the Flamingos, with J.C. Banks leading the line two shots. Banks, who had been out of the starting 11 for the past two games, played on the right wing for much of the match.
The second half had its moments, but the closest chance on goal came in the final seconds. Omaha's Illal Osumann put a header on goal in the 92nd minute, but defender Gustavo Fernandes saved the Flamingos by heading the effort off the goal line.
With the draw, Forward Madison stays in eighth place. With four matches left to go, though, FMFC has more games in hand than any other team in League One.
Up next on the schedule is a trip to Florida to face Fort Lauderdale CF on Wednesday, October 14.
