TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Danny Musovski scored on a penalty kick in the 64th minute to give FC Tucson a 1-0 win Saturday night over San Diego Zest FC.

Musovski was taken down in the box as he made a move left of the box against Zest defenders Griffin Mallas and Edgar Garcia.

The winning result was FC Tucson’s fifth in six matches and they now hold a five-point lead in the Mountain Division thanks to Colorado Rapids FC’s 3-0 loss to Albuquerque Sol FC

The side (5-2-1) hosts the first of three straight matches against the Sol on Saturday, June 24.

It'll be the second meeting this season in the rivalry series with Albuquerque. FC Tucson won 4-2 in New Mexico back on May 20. The winner of the annual series receives the Golden Rattler trophy.

Meanwhile, the FC Tucson Women (1-2-3) played to a 0-0 draw in their road match against L.A. Galaxy San Diego.

The ladies are at the mid-point of their ten-match season and play the San Diego SeaLions on Sunday at 2 p.m. The SeaLions lead the PacSouth Division with nine points. FCTW (6 points) is in third place.
