What a thrilling game that was! Chattanooga FC held off a late comeback from Bay Cities to secure three wins on the spin and top spot in the east with the least games played.
Though the chances were few, they were high quality as Chattanooga deservedly netted more than their western visitors. With 11 goals in 3 games, the attacking swagger that was hiding at the beginning of the season is in full force.
Chattanooga looked comfy going into the half, but a change in tactics from Anders Perez busted the game open- but to his team’s detriment. All the space in behind the Bay Cities defense left space for CFC’s pacey attack to deliver what I would argue some of the most entertaining soccer seen this season. The goals that Bay Cities did score were well taken but not high percentage shots. The flow of the game was always in Chattanooga’s favor.
Given the chances created, if this game was played out a thousand times, we’d expect Chattanooga to pick up the win most of the time, expecting on average 2.909 of the 3 available points from the match.
How much fun was it to watch Taylor Gray- he’s not afraid to pull off skills on the field, and now that he’s found his shooting boots, he’ll be one of the top threats in the league. This attack as a whole is really enjoyable to watch.
If you’re not excited for what’s happening in Chattanooga, you haven’t been watching. The coaching staff and the players are taking things to the next level. I can put out all the numbers I want, but the results on the field speak for themselves. It’s a good time to be a CFC fan!
