Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) After taming a road demon on Saturday, the Chattanooga Red Wolves are ready to make some noise as they hit a crucial portion of their schedule.

After two and-a-half months of action, the Red Wolves finally got that elusive road win last Saturday, beating Richmond 2-0.

Said midfielder Josue Soto:”Yeah there was some pressure building up. We were not getting the results away from home, but we’re happy we finally got it.”

Now Chattanooga has a chance to take care of business.  Their next three matches are at home.

Said Soto:”Like you said, it’s a big opportunity. We’ve been doing well at home. We haven’t lost. We hope to keep that going. If we get good results here, we can climb up the standings and position ourselves for playoff spots.”

Turns out the Red Wolves temporary home at Chattanooga Christian is becoming a real home field advantage thanks in part to the artificial surface.

Said forward Jose ‘Sito’ Seoane:”I mean it’s a completely different game from playing on turf than grass.”

Said Soto:”Being used to the turf field, and it being different than any other field in this league. I think it’s an advantage.”

Said Seoane:”It takes normally teams. I’ve noticed this. It takes them like ten, fifteen, or twenty minutes to figure it out.”

Said Soto:”I think teams don’t like to play here. We can see it in their body language.”
The ball bounces different on turf, just ask the goalie for Georgia Tormenta who misplayed this bounce badly last month.

Said Seoane:”I remember that day. It was a rainy day. So when you put water on the turf, you can get those bounces. I think the keeper didn’t notice about this, and he was expecting the ball to maybe bounce up instead of bounce over him. I mean lucky for us. We got an early goal.”

The Red Wolves host Greenville on Saturday at 7pm at CCS.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
