Red Wolves hold on to fourth place in League One standings

Chattanooga Red Wolves SC drew Forward Madison FC 1-1 at Breese Stevens Field Saturday night. The draw secures the Red Wolves one point on the road and extends the team’s unbeaten run to eight matches, with the team’s last lost coming on May 18.

After 20 minutes of back-and-forth play, Forward Madison’s Connor Tobin put the ‘Mingos on the board first, finding the net off of a corner kick sent in by Danny Tenorio. Madison would hold on to its 1-0 lead going into halftime.

Despite a couple of chances early on in the second half, Chattanooga wouldn’t answer until the 77th minute when center defender Nicholas Amponsah headed one home off of a cross sent in from the left flank by Vangjel Zguro following a corner kick. The equalizer marked Amponsah’s first goal of the season and Zguro’s sixth assist.

Forwards Steven Beattie, Sito Seoane and YaYa Cisse would connect for chances, but ultimately none were successful.

Goalkeeper Alex Mangels was undoubtedly tested, facing 16 shots from Madison. He recorded three saves, two crosses claimed and one punch. Amponsah had a strong defensive display, recording five tackles and 83.3% passing accuracy on the night.

The match marked the third and final meeting between Chattanooga and Madison with Chattanooga stealing five of the possible nine points.

The point Saturday keeps Chattanooga in fourth place, just one point shy of Lansing Ignite FC and South Georgia Tormenta FC, with two games in hand on Lansing.

Following a bye week, the Red Wolves return home to host FC Tucson on Saturday, July 27 at David Stanton Field. The match marks the second meeting between the two clubs and kicks off at 7:00 p.m. ET. For tickets, visit chattredwolves.com/tickets.
