In dramatic fashion in almost Fergie time John Black equalised when most of you were settling down for Songs of Praise! The inspired goalkeeping of Andy Cox kept the Falcons at bay until the last minute of a very long game. John Black turned in a Peter Bennett shot gratefully after missing some much easier chances earlier in the last session. 

Steve Warr scored early in the game for the Welsh Dragons the lead against the run of play with a well taken goal when found free on the top of the D. The Falcons continued to create chances prompted superbly by Gary Mahon in the middle but could not score against a well organised Welsh side. 

The 2nd third was more even as the Falcons rested key players ready for a final assault in the last session. Tony Henman showed some silky skills as he turned the Welsh captain inside out! 

Short corner after short corner, attack after attack, and finally the equaliser! Terrific game, thanks to Welsh Dragons and both umpires - fine teas by Jan and back to the bar. Proper hockey! 

Thanks to Clive Jones for the photos.
