Chattanooga FC and San Diego 1904 FC last faced each other on June 12 in San Diego when CFC earned a hard fought draw in the 89th minute. Tate Robertson laced a beautiful free kick into the box and found Ian McGrath, whose header snuck past the goalkeeper and evened up the game.
CFC had one last chance and nearly took the lead but the shot from Sean Hoffstatter went just over the crossbar, and the match ended 1-1.
