Forward Madison held league-leading Greenville Triumph SC to a 0-0 draw during the team's debut at Hart Park in Wauwatosa on Friday night. The Flamingos came close on several occasions, but never found the back of the net in their first game at the club's temporary home.

The first half ended scoreless after most of the contest played out in a tough midfield battle. Greenville came close through a rare indirect freekick inside the penalty area, but goalkeeper Philipp Marceta saved Omar Mohamed's shot. On the other end, striker Wojciech Wojcik hit Hart Park's football field goal with his own shot from the edge of the box.

The second half provided few meaningful chances in front of goal even as the Flamingos pushed numbers forward during the final minutes of the game.

Forward Madison's League One season continues next week as the Flamingos travel to Virginia to take on the Richmond Kickers on Saturday, Aug. 8.
