On a busy night for sports in Chattanooga and going up against the Final Four, the Chattanooga Football Club and Detroit City FC proved to be a pretty good draw, and the CFC fans went home happy after seeing a 1-0 exhibition victory Saturday at Finley Stadium.
Markus Smarzoch’s scorching goal from 35 yards out in the 52nd minute highlighted a strong offensive showing by CFC, which had most of the scoring chances in the match. The victory was the team’s 100th of all time.
“It was a nice feeling,” Smarzoch said of his score. “It was coming out of a long throw-in, and I just got it off my chest with one touch and I just smashed it. I had a good feeling (it was going in).”
