CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Chattanooga FC’s attack embarrassed Soda City’s defense Saturday with a shut out, 3-0 victory in Fort Finley. CFC came out of the gate with intensity and speed, scoring the first goal at five minutes. Ian McGrath cleaned up a blocked shot from Zeca Ferraz to make it 1-0. Just two minutes later, Brian Bement’s brilliant footwork drove him around two defenders to score the second goal. Kaleb Jackson got a part of the action in the second half to make it 3-0 and seal the win for CFC.
