TUCSON - The Fresno Fuego kept their season alive with a gutsy, workman-like performance Friday night in the Western Conference semifinal, claiming victory over hosts FC Tucson 1-0 at Kino North Stadium. Renato Bustamante's 9th goal on the year was enough for the Fresno club to advance to Saturday's Western Conference final in Tucson, where they'll take on division rival FC Golden State Force with a National Semifinal berth at stake. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m PT. 

Independent supporters group Fire Squad Fresno will be hosting a watch party for the final at Strummer's, 833 E. Fern, 93728 in the Tower District. Admission is free.

Fuego fans that aren't able to make it to the watch party can stream the game online at FC Tucson's Facebook page:
