Falcons go ahead 1-0 but wilt in the heat to 1-6 against Woking

29 September 2018, 13:00

Falcons 1 - 6 Woking Pitts the Elders

The standard phrase of 'Architects of their own downfall' can be applied to this performance.

Starting with 10 men as the M25 caused issues the shape and disciplined start led to a firm strike from Bear Smith striking the Woking foot on the line and Kaluza slotted the stroke home

Woking had fielded a strong team but this does not explain the lack of concentration which allowed 2 soft goals when the game was evenly matched.

At this point Falcons pressed the self destruct button and pushed forward in numbers but were caught on the break as poor passing picked out the opposition. Stranded in the opposition half the pace of the Woking forwards found holes in the defence despite the valiant efforts of Blomley and Billington to stem the tide.

With 5 goals netted by the Woking Centre forward, from moves which Falcons had started, they had time to reflect on the result on the way back. The mood was improved listening to the Ryder cup on the M25, however.
