The Kitchen was rocking at Wanderers Grounds as HFX made its home debut against Forge on a rainy Saturday afternoon, with the home side securing their first points of the campaign courtesy of an 82nd-minute goal by Luis Alberto Perea, giving Stephen Hart’s side a 2-1 victory in front of 6,000-odd supporters.
A first-half goal by Akeem Garcia in the 30th minute opened the festivities in Halifax, with Forge captain Kyle Bekker nearly tying things up with a free kick that struck the crossbar.
Forge’s Kadell Thomas scored an equalizer at the 57-minute mark, getting on the end of a Kwame Awuah cross to bring his team back level at 1-1.
But, Perea’s late effort – a well-struck drive on the end of a long cross from the left – brought the raucous home crowd to their feet in a united Haligonian cheer.
HFX goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams was forced into a big save on a Tristan Borges shot in the 87th minute, preserving his team’s precious lead. Three minutes of added time gave Forge a glimmer of hope, but the party was destined for Halifax, with the Wanderers holding on for the win.
