Falcons miss opportunity to go top drawing with Guildford Vets

25 February 2017, 15:00, Banbury Road North (Near)

Falcons 5 - 5 Guildford Gondoliers

The Falcons somehow managed to contrive a high scoring 5 all draw in a strange game at Banbury Road North. The game started with the Falcons pressing  and early on Simon Smith opened the scoring with a firmly struck short corner, as with the rest of the game Guildford took their opportunities well scoring two goals very quickly on the break taking advantage of the Falcons' shaky defence. The Falcons equalised just before half time with a well worked goal made by a mazy Phil Dunnill run and finished well by Russell Warner.

The Falcons enjoyed their best spell of the game and retook the lead in a fluctuating game as Bear turned well and smashed the ball into the bottom corner for his second goal. The home side failed to add to this lead and were undone in the same fashion as the first half and in the space of minutes found themselves 4 - 3 down as the visitors 4th goal was turned in by the ponderous Jones trying to clear his lines. The Falcons equaliser was similar as a Bear Smith short corner was deflected high in the air and despite frantic attempts to clear rolled slowly over the line. There was still time for another break from Guildford and their forward dinked the ball over Ricard Wilsdon to once more take the lead. The Falcons continued to dominate and make chances and Steve Griffiths' goal bound shot was stopped by a Guildford body and the resultant stroke was converted well by John Kaluza into the goalkeeper's top left corner to complete the scoring and the game finished at 5 all.

Now the author got a calculator out and reckons Woking are now on 2.40 and we are second on something like 2.35 or so!! But not sure if the joker counts double against conference sides etc etc.
