There don't appear to be any calendars in the FC Tucson clubhouse with June 2 circled in red ink.
But it's clear the semipro soccer team has saved the date of tonight's match against Fresno to its collective consciousness.
The Fresno Fuego handed FC Tucson its only blemish this season, a 2-1 loss at Fresno on May 5. It was a memorable night in more ways than one - not only was it the Tucson franchise's first USL Premier Development League match, but it was decided on a stunning 50-yard lob in the 84th minute.
The rematch is tonight at 7 at Kino Sports Complex North Field No. 5. The Tucson lads sit fourth in the USL PDL Southwest Division standings with a 3-1 record and nine points. Fresno is third at 3-2-3 and 12 points.
"Fresno," FC Tucson forward Kevin King said while shaking his head after practice Friday. "Once a team beats you and you get a second chance at them, you want revenge. So we're going all out, we're going for the win.
"When we played them (in Fresno), I thought we were the better team. Their field was pretty small. Now, we're going to get them on a bigger field, more space. We're going to see how they are going to angle us."
The teams' paths have gone at just about a 180-degree angle to each other since that May 5 match.
FC Tucson has won its three league matches, and four overall, since the defeat. It hasn't even given up a goal in that time - 270 minutes.
Defenders Kareem Smith and Conor Spence have both played every minute of every league match this season, giving FC Tucson consistency at the back.
Fresno, the defending division champion, has not won a league match since May 5 and has taken just three of a possible 15 points. On Thursday, it lost 6-0 to the Ventura County Fusion.
"After the kind of loss they took against Ventura, they're going to be an angry, wounded animal," FC Tucson associate head coach Jon Pearlman said.
"Fresno is on a little bit of a downslide, and we really need to take advantage of (Fresno's) midweek game. And use the size of our field, the heat of our state and the power of our fans to really push us to another three points," Pearlman said.
A win would put FC Tucson level with Fresno in third place with 12 points.
Ventura County and Orange County Blue Star are atop the table with 13 points apiece. But Ventura County has played two more matches than FC Tucson, and Orange County has taken the field three more times than the men in black.
"It's going to be a good test for the team," King said.
