Chattanooga Red Wolves SC News Release

The Chattanooga Red Wolves play their second of back to back road matches this Saturday against League One newcomers, Spokane Velocity in their inaugural season. The clubs will only meet twice this season with Velocity traveling to CHI Memorial Stadium on August 7th for the second and final League One matchup.

Chattanooga most recently traveled to face Union Omaha in the fifth round of the USL Jägermeister Cup against their second opponent outside of the Central Group. After Omaha took an early 2-0 lead, Coach Scott Mackenzie made key substitutions to bring Ricky Ruiz and Owen Green on and, just three minutes later, Ruiz would score his first goal for the Red Wolves this season to cut the score to 2-1 in the 39th minute. Chattanooga continued to press through the end of the first half and grabbed the game-tying goal in first half stoppage time from Stefan Lukic for his first Jägermeister Cup and League One goal for the Red Wolves and securing a 2-2 score by the end of the first half.

After conceding two goals, Omaha rebounded quickly in the second half and notched the go-ahead goal in the 54th minute. Chattanooga found difficulty in responding and the Owls found a fourth goal in the 66th minute for a 4-2 score. The Red Wolves held off additional goals through the end of regulation time with the home side taking three points in the intra league tournament.

Spokane also played most recently in the USL Jägermeister Cup competition, facing West Group leading Northern Colorado Hailstorm in Windsor, CO. Colorado got on the board just eight minutes in and took a 2-0 lead in the 21st minute for a two goal lead after the first 45 minutes.

Velocity found the back of the net in the 62nd minute to cut the Hailstorm lead to 2-1; however, Northern Colorado would score a third time in the 74th minute to reclaim the two goal lead and a 3-1 final victory.

The Red Wolves will return home on Saturday, July 13th to take on the Richmond Kickers at CHI Memorial Stadium. Fans can enjoy special $2.00 pricing on select beers for $2 Beer Night. Chattanooga will then play Charlotte Independence at home just three days later on Tuesday, July 16th for Tacos + Tequila at The Den.
