Goal scorers: '9 Laner; '51 Gomez (pen.)
A good Hellas beated 2-0 Reggina at home and gain the first win of the season in the 2012/13 season.
The gialloblu started immediately with a high determination and they found the goal after 9 minutes with Simon Laner, assisted by Rivas, who took advantage of an incredible error by the amaranto goalkeeper Baiocco. The first half continued in a high intensity but there weren't great chances to score.
In the second half Cacia had two clear chances to make it 2-0 but after few minutes he gained a penalty that Gomez converted. After the second goal there weren't great chances and the gialloblu easily controlled the game.
