In tonight's PMR, we review @ChattanoogaFC's first match as a member of @NISALeague against @OaklandRootsSC. We're professional y'all! It was a good night and it was a frustrating night for the Blues. Things started out well, as first-year mid-fielder Ian McGrath put home a header off a Kyle Carr corner kick for CFC's first goal as a professional club. It looked like CFC would take all three points as time went on. However, a late equalizer from Jack McInerney spoiled the NISA debut for CFC as the match ended in a 1-1 draw. The Blues still got a result and will be heading back east with a point. Next up, CFC will take on the Michigan Stars at Finley on March 14th.
