Red Wolves topple league-leaders, continue strong home form at David Stanton Field

Chattanooga Red Wolves SC (7-5-7) defeated league-leaders North Texas SC (10-4-4) 1-0 at David Stanton Field Saturday night. The win preserves Chattanooga’s unbeaten home record.

The match remained scoreless until the 54th minute, when Red Wolves captain Steven Beattie put away a penalty kick after forward Juan Mare was brought down by North Texas’ Bicou Bissainthe in the penalty area. The goal marked Beattie’s eighth of the season, bringing him within one of North Texas SC’s Ronaldo Damus for the league lead. 

The match proved to be a defensive battle, with the Red Wolves posting just two shots on frame and North Texas unable to hit one on target the entire 90 minutes.  

After Bissainthe was shown his second yellow card in the 70th minute, North Texas was reduced to 10 men. Down a man and down a goal, the visitors were ultimately unable to level the match.

The win marked Chattanooga’s first in six matches after four consecutive draws and a midweek road loss to Lansing Ignite FC.

Alex Mangels earned his sixth clean sheet despite not having to make a save. The goalkeeper posted four crosses claimed and one punch. Midfielder Ualefi showed a strong midfield display, recording 86.2% passing accuracy and three tackles.       

The three points earned place the Red Wolves even on points with fourth-place Forward Madison FC (8-7-4).

The Red Wolves head to Statesboro, Georgia to face South Georgia Tormenta FC on Saturday, Aug. 10 at Erk Russell Park. The match marks the second of four regular season meetings between the two clubs and kicks off at 8 p.m. ET. Fans can tune into the action live on ESPN+.
