February 11th: New York Red Bulls take on FC Tucson in Preseason Scrimmage
In an open scrimmage in Oro Valley, Jon Pearlman faced his first competitive test since being named FC Tucson head coach earlier this week.
Unfortunately, it was against the New York Red Bulls.
The Town of Oro Valley, who are hosting the Red Bulls while they train throughout MLS Preseason, wanted fans to have a chance to get up close and personal with some of the biggest names in the MLS.
The Red Bulls went on to win the match 3-1, which featured three shots off the woodwork, a red card, and a lot of smiling fans.
