Chattanooga Red Wolves SC (6-4-3) defeated Richmond Kickers (3-8-3) 1-0 at David Stanton Field Saturday. Forward Steven Beattie netted his seventh goal of the season to improve the Red Wolves to third place in League One standings.

Beattie put the Red Wolves on the board in the seventh minute. Midfielder Ami Pineda played a long ball into the left side of the 18 to find Sito Seoane. Seoane then slotted the ball back inside the six, and Beattie was there to put it away, giving the Red Wolves an early lead.  

The Kickers would battle back to create chances in the latter minutes of the first half and throughout the second, but the Red Wolves held it down to secure the win.

Both Pineda and Conor Doyle had strong displays in the midfield, recording the two highest passing accuracy percentages for the Red Wolves. Goalkeeper Alex Mangels came out of the night unscathed, securing his fourth clean sheet of the season

The team is back home next Saturday, July 6 to host Lansing Ignite FC, concluding the team’s three-game home stand. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET.
