TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

FC Tucson is in the Premier Development League post-season for a fifth consecutive season.

The Boys in Black did their part with a 3-1 win in Colorado Springs Saturday afternoon over the Colorado Pride Switchbacks U23.

And then they got the help they needed Saturday night when the top seed in the Western Conference, FC Golden State Force, beat the Ventura County Fusion 1-0.

FC Tucson (7-3-4, 25 points) finishes as the best second place team in the conference.
