Hartford City made it a home debut to remember in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Seacoast United Mariners at Central Connecticut State in New Britain, Ct.

Tyler Carlos unlocked a scoreless match in the 80th minute while Luke Alvaro added an insurance goal in the 90th minute. Hami Kara kept the sheet clean to record his first shutout of the season despite the rainy conditions.

With the win, Hartford City improves to six points (2-0-0), good for a share of first place in the Atlantic White Conference. Saturday’s match was the Mariners’ first of the season.

Earlier in the week, the Nutmeg State selection received a national boost from FOX Soccer’s Alexi Lalas and Rob Stone, both of whom lent their support to the team.

Hartford City will look to make it three in a row on Saturday, May 20 against Elm City Express at Reese Stadium in New Haven, Ct. Seacoast United Mariners will attempt to secure their first win of the season on Friday, May 20 when they host Rhode Island Reds FC at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland, Me.
