In a game where the line up for both sides remained fluid until the starting whistle for the game blew, Falcons pressed the determined Amersham defence from the start. Demonstrating a calm and clinical approach in front of goal they were able to secure a 5-0 lead in the first half, and draw some find saves from the Amersham keeper.
Finlayson bagged 4 and his elusive running and touch proving hard to defend. Griffiths added the fifth with a well taken close range finish.
The second half saw Falcons play more fluid hockey in the early Spring sunshine. The warm temperature was causing unnecessary hot heads as the game continued with the pattern of determined defence by Amersham.
As Heinrich and Jones were able to provide the platform for distribution Burrell and Warner were able to find the forwards willing to add to their tally. Griffiths scored 2 notable goals with one finish from an aerial flick over the goal keepers head from a Finlayson 3D pass drawing applause from the spectators. His overall game also securing the Man of the Match award.
White, Breen and Crampton-Smith deserve great thanks for their support to the opposition and willingness to bolster the gaps in the Amersham line-up across the pitch. Their contribution ensured the game remained competitive, despite the final score-line.
Burrell picked up a green card for a clarification request following a clash of sticks. He quickly made amends by bagging 2 further goals as Sumser and Bowden continued to link well down the right channel picking out Finlayson who now turned provider.
Warner was then given the opportunity to enjoy the Spring sunshine on the side of the pitch with an unnecessary condescending tone following a particular engagement in the opposition D. Having been chastised, and to his team-mates amusement he would take the opportunity to reflect. He would then return to the fray to finish the 10-0 score-line with a short corner strike.
