Falcons maintain momentum with a 6-0 win against Havant

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

Falcons 6 - 0 Havant Men's Vets 1s

Falcons took to the pitch with determination to maintain their winning run with bolstered resources from players returning from injury. Heinrich has at last managed to play in 2 consecutive games and the medical bag remains on standby. However it was again not needed.

Falcons played their best hockey to date with the pace of Doggett, Finlayson and Sumser causing problems and the craft of Warner, Dunnill and Burrell trying to find space in a crowded 25 and D.

The dogged Havant defence was finally broken from a short corner where Warner and Doggett contrived to secure a far post position and Finlayson's shot found the spot and Doggett dispatched.

Finlayson then made it 2 by catching the opposition keeper flat footed as he feinted to shoot right and then slotted the ball to his left.

Sumser, Burrell and Dunnill all came close but Havant enjoyed some dangerous moves on the break which Jones, Blomley and Heinrich kept under control.

The second half saw a degree of frustration lead to more urgency in the key areas. The introduction of White with extra pace and Bowden provided width in the right channel the ball fell more kindly to the Falcons in the D. Finlayson finished a good move with Griffiths and Burrell linking well and Warner made it 4 when Sumser's shot hit the inside of the post and Warner was able to slot home from close range. Given this was his first goal of the season he was happy for Sumser to claim the assist.

The last spell saw Wilsdon maintain a second consecutive clean sheet and the trickery of Griffiths and another strike from Sumser from a tight angle secured a 6 goal advantage.

Overall Burrell produced a good display as he gave options across the pitch and despite being a little unlucky not to put away a drilled pass from Warner as he controlled superbly only to see his clever flick miss the top left hand corner he deservedly picked up Man of the Match.
