The Chattanooga Football Club was stout defensively Saturday night despite starting keeper Phil D'Amico being out of the starting lineup.

Alec Reddington and Signal Mountain native Michael Barrueta - who made his CFC debut, playing the final 12 minutes - combined for the clean sheet in goal in a 2-0 exhibition victory over North Alabama SC in Huntsville.

Tate Robertson scored from 23 yards out in the fourth minute, and Brett Jones got his third goal of the season in the 12th minute.

CFC will play another exhibition at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the Georgia Revolution in McDonough, then return to NISA competition against Maryland Bobcats FC at 7:30 p.m. on May 29 at Finley Stadium.
