CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The Georgia Revolution’s season came to an end Thursday night against Chattanooga FC by way of a 2-0 loss.

Chattanooga’s Juan Hernandez Mendizabal scored on a 35-yard free kick for the first goal of the night. The Revs mounted some attacks late in the second half following the goal but Chattanooga’s defense held firm. Chattanooga added a second goal in the 89th minute from Joao Costa to advance.

It was a memorable season for the Revolution, who picked up their first overall win and first playoff win in franchise history to finish the campaign with an overall record of 5-6-3.

“Tonight was not the result we hoped for but the team played with heart and never quit,” a Georgia Revolution representative said. “2018 was the best season in many years for our club and included our first playoff victory ever. The fans have been amazing and we look forward to making more history next season.”
