The Chattanooga Football Club beat San Diego 1904 FC 2-1 on Saturday night in California, one week after the same clubs played to a 1-all draw at Finley Stadium.
San Diego scored in the 46th minute, but Chattanooga FC drew even nine minutes later on Alec McKinley's goal and went ahead in the 66th on Markus Naglestad's goal. CFC improved to 3-4-1 in the National Independent Soccer Association fall season, with 1904 FC now 2-5-1.
CFC's next match is also in the Golden State, against the Cal United Strikers at 7 p.m. Eastern on Oct. 3 in Irvine, California. The return to Finley Stadium comes four days after that with a 7 p.m. match against the same club.
Red Wolves fall at home
The Chattanooga Red Wolves lost 1-0 to the New England Revolution II on Saturday night at CHI Memorial Stadium in East Ridge, the first home loss of the season for the USL League One leaders.
The Red Wolves have shown a knack for late goals to produce wins and draws this year, but this time fifth-place New England (9-9-4, 31 points) pulled off the miracle when Damian Rivera scored on an assist by Connor Presley in the sixth of seven minutes of extra time.
Chattanooga (10-3-10) remained in first place in the league standings with 40 points with Union Omaha (10-3-8) still two points back after losing 1-0 to FC Tucson (9-8-6), which jumped into third place at 33 points — one ahead of the Greenville Triumph SC (8-7-8), which played to a 1-1 tie with Forward Madison FC.
Chattanooga returns to competition against the Richmond Kickers at 6:30 p.m. next Saturday in Virginia.
