Falcons 6 - 4 Epsom Vagabonds

  • Russell Warner Falcons game v Epsom 001

The Falcons after watching the Ladies 2s just failing to comeback from 4 goals down took notice and won 6 -  4 after being 4 goals to 1 down just before half time. Man of the Match Steve Griffiths played superbly and scored a hat trick as he tormented the Epsom defence in the 2nd Half.

The start of the game was very different to what was to unfold as Epsom dominated and took the lead they deserved despite argument from the Falcons defence. The Falcons immediately equalised with a goal from Dave Hughes. The Falcons soon shipped 3 more goals as Centre Half Russ Warner to a blow to the head and had to leave the field to fix his hairline.  

The Falcons pulled a goal back before half time as Steve Griffiths flicked high into the Epsom goal and Russ Warner returned to the fray as the score remained 4 -2 at half time with Epsom being well in command.

The Falcons changed to back line to bring Mark Crampton-Smith to full back and this changed the game as the Falcons found their passing game and the initiative turned full circle from Epsom as Ian Sobey dribbled into the Epsom D and scored with a firm shot that beat the Epsom keeper at the near post. Steve Griffiths equalised and Falcons added further goals through Simon Smith and Steve Griffiths completed his hat trick to make the game safe and complete the come back.
