Falcons make it four in a row with a hard fought 4-1 win

Falcons 4 - 1 Southampton Cockburns

In a game that was fortunate to be played in reasonable conditions despite the reported Storm Brian, Hawks were able to secure four wins on the bounce and reflect on a few chances missed.

In a first half which saw Griffiths, Bennett, Smith and Dunnill test the keeper on a regular basis the chances were being thwarted by excellent defence and a goal keeper on top form. Several chances went begging but Griffiths did manage to open the scoring and was unlucky when his clever flick struck the cross bar. The score remained 1-0 at half time as Warner found the back of the net but a short corner had already been awarded.

Hawks remained patient however and the defence held firm against a number of quick breaks before Bennett finished well and Bear Smith crashed a short corner into the back board. Hawks had failed to convert a number of chances from short corners, but this strike left the keeper no chance.

The goal of the game came from Bennett who found space in the D as a pass from deep midfield from Warner picked him out in the D from a slight deflection and he finished calmly for his brace.

However at 4-0 Southampton continued to believe and secured a consolation goal at the death with a well worked long corner move.
