Bonus Points All Around
Tries for Days
A beautiful day in Chattanooga held through for all 3 matches that were played at Montague Park.
Chattanooga scored early but Knoxville hung around as repeat penalties stacked up against Nooga, gave the Possums a breather from the onslaught, and allowed the Possums to advance the ball down the field. Three times the Possums found their way into the offensive 22 and three times they found the try line very easily.
A self-inflicted wound and the lack of energy in the defensive red-zone allowed Knoxville to score 4 tries and secure themselves the all important bonus point, but Nooga did go back to their old ways of scoring 9 tries and earning the bonus point win.
In this years hunt, Nooga and Knoxville are both battling for the playoff spot and today they ended tied in points at 11...4 points behind Nashville.
Both Knox and Chatt have to play Nashville one more time before the end of the regular season, with Chatt heading up to play their matrix match against Nashville at Nash-Bash.
Chattanooga 59 --- 25 Knoxville
