STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC will face Chattanooga Red Wolves SC for the first time this season on Saturday, June 4, kicking off at 8 p.m. ET. Saturday night is Pride Night at Erk Russell Park, presented by Viamedia, with a portion of the match proceeds benefiting the local Boro Pride organization. Fans can enjoy giveaways, trivia and live pro soccer while raising money and awareness for an important cause.
Tormenta FC is looking for a win to keep itself in the playoff race and rise in the USL League One standings. The Red Wolves come into the match with three wins and a draw, and the Statesboro side looks to claim Chattanooga’s first defeat while snapping its own loss streak.
Chilean goalkeeper Pablo Jara was named Tormenta FC Player of the Month for April and May. Jara's performance this season has been extraordinary with 22 saves, first across League One, in seven games.
After being out due to an injury, defender Curtis Thorn is expected to return to the backline and make a difference on the pitch. With a goal this season under his belt, Thorn is hungry to get back on the field and compete for a much-needed win.
Newly-signed midfielders Raheem Somersall and Vincent Candela also performed well in the last match, bringing Tormenta FC's midfield to the next level. While Candela will look to continue his good form in the middle, Somersall is currently away for Tormenta FC, competing for Saint Kitts and Nevis at the international level.
Following tomorrow’s matchup, Tormenta FC continues its home run against Toronto FC II on June 13, at 8 P.M. ET back at Erk Russell Park.
