Falcons lose again the bogey side Guildford

13 February 2016, 15:30, Banbury Road North (Near)

Falcons 0 - 3 Guildford Gondoliers

The Falcons welcomed back their Captain Dave Hughes after a two month injury absence and also included Bear Smith in the line up.

The home side started well and dominated most of the first half with Steve Jones working hard to keep their dangerous centre forward in check, despite several short corners the closest chance fell to Giles Roper and David Hughes who both missed turning in a crossed ball from the right and the score remained level at half time.

Guildford who were playing a canny long game  and threatened on the break and sure enough a long ball was deflected cleverly past Richard Wilsdon by their centre forward. The Falcons lost their way a bit and Guildford took control and added a second through the same player and soon made the game safe when a stroke was awarded, a rather soft conversion made the score three nil and a sorry Falcons were well beaten.

A disappointing result for the Falcons in a game where they forced eight short corners and conceded none but a deserved win for Guildford who remain third just behind Southampton who fortunately lost at Oxted for the Falcons to remain top.
