Soccer's Fresno Fuego have hit the skids. Last year's division champs are winless in their last seven matches this season.
That is uncharted territory for what has always been a successful franchise. Scott Alcorn, in his sixth season as head coach, admits feeling pressure from the community.
Alcorn and the players are disappointed with the team's record of 3-4-3, but hope to turn things around in the six matches that remain on the regular season schedule.
The first is Friday night against the Pali Blues at Chukchansi Park in downtown Fresno.
