Falcons extract revenge against Woking with a convincing 4-0 win

12 January 2019, 13:30, Banbury Road North (Near)

Falcons 4 - 0 Woking Pitts

Falcons enjoyed the return of Heinrich and Dunnill following injury and surgery respectively in the first half of the season, and with a full squad played their best hockey of the season to date.

Up against the current league leaders and with the away defeat still fresh in the memory Falcons got off to a flying start. With the combinations involving Doggett, Burrell, Finlayson Sumser and Dunnill, Warner was able to sit deep and allow the movement and passing to create havoc.

A solid platform of Heinrich, Jones, Billington and Blomley enabled any breaks to be quickly stifled and the confidence to press the Woking defence in the channels. Falcons were presented with an early short corner and Finlayson dispatched calmly. 

As Woking fought a rear guard action the chances came thick and fast and Finlayson secured his man of the match award with a well taken hat trick and Doggett capped an excellent first half with a well taken goal.

The second half required management of complacency and rotation of the squad. Despite the 4-0 score-line it was felt a couple had gone missing and Falcons were in no mood to be generous.

However credit must be given to Woking for their brave second half performance as their solid back line prevented any additions to the score with the keeper and centre back proving a tough nut to crack.

A well deserved win and a good post match rapport with the sporting Woking team ended an excellent result, performance and a reminder of good sportsmanship with intensity on the pitch and conviviality in the bar.
