The Falcons managed to contrive a loss against a poor Havant side on a slippy sort of astro. In honesty Havant deserved to win as they played better than the Falcons who were woeful.
The first half was reasonable with the Falcons creating chances and took the lead when a worked short corner found John Kaluza who slotted home. There did not seem much danger until Dave Blomley and Richard Wilsdon confused each other allowing the equaliser. The Falcons to press and perhaps should have a penalty stroke when Dave Hughes was fouled. Chances were missed and score remained level at half time.
The discussion at half time was about possession and passing better but immediately the opposite happened as the Falcons started by giving possession as every opportunity to Havant who could not believe their luck but returned the favour by being equally abject.
Eventually Havant were denied a goal after a deflection was missed by the umpire but within a minute took the lead after the ball hit the bar and the rebound was turned in. There was still time for the Falcons to equalise as they pushed forward and short corners were wasted and Havant continued put in some ugly tackles which the Havant umpire did not seem to see which only seems to increase the Falcons frustration.
In truth this was a very poor game and the Falcons should have been able to beat Havant despite 5 regulars being unavailable and only have themselves to blame.
