Birthday Boy Billers inspires Falcons to 5 nil win at Horsham

10 January 2015, 15:00

Falcons 5 - 0 Horsham Men's Vets

The Falcons travelled south for the second week running via the M25 and negotiated a potentially tricky fixture with ease and won handily at mid table Horsham who are generally very strong on their home turf.The Falcons again took a leaf out of Serena's game regime and stopped for a caffeine intake before the game. They welcomed back Shane Lovett, Ian Caws and Rogan Meadows to the starting eleven and the evergreen Meadows laid on the first goal for Russell Warner to strike (firmly) past the wrong footed keeper. The lead was soon doubled after good work from Dave Hughes allowed Steve Griffiths to tap in at the far post. 

The Falcons were rarely troubled as Chris Billington and Dave Blomley confidently mopped up any threat from the Horsham forwards. Phil Dunnill continued to show his international class with a series of telling runs but the score could not be added to despite several short corner efforts from the misfiring Warner.

With the score being 2 nil at half time the next goal was all important and the game was settled when John Kaluza swept in a Warner pass to make the score 3 nil. Kaluza scored his second from the penalty spot after a Griffiths shot was stopped on the line after a good move involving Dunnill and Hughes. Griffiths added his second again after the influential Warner passed for him to sweep the ball in at the post. The Falcons should have added to their lead as Caws and Trevor Brothers both were thwarted by fine saves by the Horsham keeper.

There was still time for the Falcons to show their honesty in admitting to a foot after Dunnill smashed the ball past the Horsham keeper. Horsham searched for a  consolation goal and should have scored when one of their forwards missed the ball with the goal gaping.
