Atlético Ottawa beat HFX Wanderers in the club’s first-ever Canadian Premier League game at TD Place Saturday.

Over 12,000 fans watched the home side beat the visitors from Halifax 2-1, thanks to goals by Malcolm Shaw and Brian Wright in the 39th and 87th minutes respectively. Akeem Garcia had earlier given HFX the lead in the 12th minute.

“I think playing in front of our families and friends was incredible,” said Atlético Ottawa head coach Mista after the match. “I hope this is just the beginning and I hope we can get more victories, because today was incredible. Now we’re going to continue working, because this Wednesday we have another difficult game against York.”
