The Falcons arrived late for their first league game of the season as traffic was very slow regardless of the different routes to Woking. The game started late and surprisingly the Falcons started quicker and the influential and Masters gold medal winner Phil Dunnill soon sliced open the home defence allowing John Black to wrong foot the goal keeper to take an early lead. The Falcons forced a number of earlier short corners which mostly were hit straight at the Woking keeper, from one of the deflections Rogan Meadows forced the ball back across the goal for Dave Hughes to turn it in to double the lead.
The Falcons continued to force the match but were grateful to the defence dealing well with the opposition who looked strong on the break. Their centre forward showed good close skills and was well controlled by the combination of Dave Blomley and Chris Billington with Richard Wilsdon looking very strong in goal.
The second half was very similar to the first as the Falcons pushed for a third goal and were kept out by fine goal keeping from Mark in the Woking goal. However Woking scored the all important 3rd goal - thanks Phil - from a breakaway. The Falcons pushed forward again and eventually got a short corner move to work and Russell Warner's shot was swept in at the far post by John Kaluza to make the score 3 goals to 1 and make the game safe.
