Red Wolves Look to Get Rowdy Against FC Tuscon
Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) The Chattanooga Red Wolves are in first place in the USL League One standings. Normally that might call for a party and celebration, but maybe not now, since it’s only three games into the season. However, Chattanooga is looking for a party atmosphere Saturday night as they welcome FC Tuscon to the Red Wolves den.
Should have a beautiful backdrop for the beautiful game Saturday at CHI Memorial Stadium. The beauty to the Red Wolves though lies in their attack.
Said forward Rafael Mentzingen:”We are going to pressure them. We are going to take it to them because we are at home. We have to take three points. I don’t know if they are going to be tired or sore. We are going to execute our game plan and get the trhee points. I think our game plan is kind of similar to last year. Try to have most of the ball. Pressure teams. Get shots. Just overwhelm teams with our pressure and aggressiveness. Just hopefully beat the 16 game (non losing) streak we had last year.”
And nothing creates pressure quite like speed.
Said head coach Obleda:”We’ve kind of built our team a little bit more for not just technical, but speed you know. Not just for comfort but for speed. We’ve really tried to be a little more dynamic going forward.”
FC Tuscon is winless, but they’ve only played two matches.
Said Mentzingen:”I think their front three is really good. Their front wall we watched. They rotate a lot. They really fast players. They like coming behind.”
Said Obleda:”I think the number one priority is dealing with Deri Corfe. Their number 10. Dealing with his individuality and how well he is with the ball and taking guys on.”
Home wins are a must in soccer, so it will help to have a rowdy Red Wolves den.
Reporter:”How important is a game like this against Tuscon at home in front of a two-dollar beer crowd, which hopefully will be big.”
Said Obleda:”Shoot two-dollar beers. That place is going to be rockin’ right? So it’s either going to make it more of a for lack of a better word hostile environment for the opposing team.”
Said Mentzingen:”I mean it’s exciting. I hope that draws even more people, and I hope they are loud and support us because that makes a huge, huge difference.”
