Sacramento scored on a long shot by Jason Jones in the 13th minute to take a 1-0 lead.
Chattanooga would answer with two goals before the end of the half.
Chattanooga's first goal came in the 26th minute on a crazy play in front of the goal after a cross by Jordan Dunstan.

A minute later Jose Zeka Ferraz gave CFC a 2-1 lead.
Luis Trude gave CFC a 3-1 lead in the 70th minute after chipping a nice shot over the Sacramento goal keeper.
The final goal came in the 8th minute when James Moore found himself one on one with the keeper. Moore sent the ball past the keeper to put the game out of reach.
Gregga Hartley had another great game in the goal for CFC making several saves.
The official attendance was announced as 8,878.
