Playing before a season-record crowd of 4,196 fans, Chattanooga FC created enough fireworks on the field to more than match those in the sky over Finley Stadium Saturday night. Here Matt Aldred pops one into the goal on a header past Nashville FC goalkeeper John Hayden Coffam to take a 1-nil lead in the 26th minute of play. It was all the defenders of Fort Finley would need as CFC continued on to earn both a shutout and the Southeast Division title. Chattanooga will host the NPSL conference playoffs next Friday and Saturday.
