CONYERS, Ga. - The Chattanooga Football Club wasn't able to earn a road win against the Georgia Revolution on Saturday, but the visitors did pick up a key point in a 1-1 tie.

Chattanooga FC continues to lead the National Premier Soccer League Southeast Conference with 17 points, five more than the Revolution and Jacksonville United FC, which was off Saturday.
