The Chattanooga Football Club continued the momentum desired before a league opener by pulling out a 2-1 win over the Nebraska-based Bugeaters FC in a rain-drenched exhibition soccer match Saturday night at Finley Stadium.
“I think we were challenged by our opponent and challenged by the weather tonight,” Chattanooga FC coach Bill Elliott said. “Somehow it tired players out more playing in the rain, I think. On a night where we had a limited sub bench, I think conditions definitely played a factor.
Added Elliott: “The other team was incredibly well organized, but we responded with finding a way to win, and I’ll always be happy about that.”
