Red Wolves hold on to unbeaten record at David Stanton Field

Chattanooga Red Wolves SC (6-4-4) and Lansing Ignite FC (5-5-6) drew 1-1 at David Stanton Field Saturday night. The draw improves the Red Wolves by one point and preserves the team’s unbeaten record at home.

Lansing’s Elma N’for opened up scoring in the 25th minute, getting on the end of a ball in from Xavier Gomez and slotting it past goalkeeper Alex Mangels. The remainder of first half would see both Lansing and Chattanooga shown a red card each, causing both teams to play with ten men going into halftime.

The Red Wolves battled back in the early minutes of the second half, with Tony Walls putting Chattanooga on the board in the 55th minute. Walls headed one home into the top left corner of the net off an Amirgy Pineda corner kick to level the match. The goal marked Walls’ first goal of the season and Pineda’s third assist.

Despite efforts from both teams to put another away and seal the match, neither could capitalize on chances.

Goalkeeper Alex Mangels finished the night with two saves and three crosses claimed. Center back Nicholas Amponsah had a strong defensive display, recording three tackles and a 93% passing accuracy.

Looking ahead, the Red Wolves are on the road for two consecutive road matches, beginning with Orlando City B on Wednesday, July 10. Kickoff for that game is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The team travels to Madison, Wisconsin to face Forward Madison FC on Saturday, July 13. The match marks the third and final meeting between Chattanooga and Madison and kicks off at 8 p.m. ET. Both road matches will be available to stream on ESPN+.
