Back at home and in front of fans desperate for three points, there’s little doubt the team will try to get back on their feet and attempt to exploit a Tacoma defense that has given up nine goals in their last two matches but has only managed to put 21 shots on target in seven matches this season.

Kick-off is Apr. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Casino Arizona Field. You can watch the match on Your Phoenix CW (Channel 6 or 61).
