The Chattanooga Football Club will defend its home stadium, affectionately known as “Fort Finley,” at least one more time this year.
Late heroics from Juan Hernandez and Joao Costa helped Chattanooga FC beat the Georgia Revolution 2-0 in a National Premier Soccer League Southeast Conference playoff semifinal Thursday night. The win secured another home game for top-seeded CFC in Saturday’s final against the Atlanta Silverbacks.
The first half ended in a scoreless tie, but CFC (9-4-2) spent most of the 45 minutes on the attack. Costa and Felipe Olivera wreaked havoc on the visitors, especially down the left side. With pinpont crosses and blistering shots, the two strikers were a collective menace.
