Kevin Gall grabbed a dramatic last-minute winner to complete a second-half
hat-trick as leaders Yeovil came from two-goals down to win against
The leaders started positively, and Halifax goalkeeper Lee Butler had to be
alert to save from Abdelhalim El Kholti and Gall inside the first two minutes.
But that was as good as it got in the first half for Gary Johnson's side, as
Town striker Simon Parke struck twice in two minutes to put his side in
Parke headed home from the centre of penalty area on 13 minutes, before
doubling the lead almost immediately when he again used his head to convert
Brian Quailey's left-wing cross.
But the Glovers dominated after the interval, and produced two quickfire goals
of their own from Gall to draw level.
The striker slotted home from close-range four minutes after the restart when
Halifax failed to fully clear a Lee Johnson corner, before again taking
advantage of some slack defending to level three minutes later.
The hosts had Mark Monington dismissed for two bookings five minutes from
time, but looked to have earned a point until Gall slotted home the winner after
a poor backpass by Shaun Garnett.
