Forward Madison FC couldn't find the breakthrough Saturday night, drawing 0-0 with FC Tucson at Hart Park. The Flamingos kept their undefeated home record intact, but failed to find victory in a result that leaves the team fifth in USL League One with five matches left to play.

Saturday's contest represented a rematch just 10 days after Tucson's 2-1 home win against the Flamingos. On this occasion during a cold night in Wauwatosa, Forward Madison again had the lion's share of chances in front of goal but could not find a finish.

Chief among the chances was a shot from Josiah Trimmingham, who pushed up the pitch and rang the crossbar to shock the crowd in the 25th minute. Tucson's best opportunity may have come on a free kick from Charlie Dennis, which forced Connor Tobin into a dangerous header straight into the arms of his own goalkeeper, Chris Brady.

Forward Madison came close in the second half through striker Wojciech Wojcik, who nearly finished off a cross from Christian Diaz in the 82nd minute.

With the draw, Forward Madison stays in fifth place ahead of FC Tucson on goal differential.

Following Saturday's draw, FMFC will finish its three-game Hart Park homestand next Sunday when it plays host to Union Omaha on Oct. 11 at 4 p.m.
