Falcons mess up chance for 'double'

DURING the past week the Oak Flats Falcons Football Club played a washed-out match on Wednesday night under floodlights at JJ Kelly Park, Coniston.

First grade won the Football South Coast District League Competition encounter 3-1, coming from behind with goals from Toby Napper and two from Beau Armstrong.

Youth grade won 5-0 with goals from Bryce Gilroy, Sam Markoulis (three) and Filip Velvev.

Reserve grade played on Thursday night and won 6-0 with goals from Ryan Pitt, Nathan Belsito, Andy Bros and a hat-trick from Chris Murdzevski. There is one more game postponed to be played on June 9 at Berkeley Sports Ground.

On Saturday at Thirroul the Falcons shot themselves in the foot after completely dominating play for most of the game.

They conceded one goal after six minutes and the killer one 10 seconds from the final whistle, due to a comedy of errors whereby four Falcons defenders plus the 'keeper tried to prevent a corner, to go down 2-1.

In the first half the Falcons should have scored when Chris Murdzevski took a great shot from outside the goal area and hit the upright.

In the second half, after equalising through Murdzevski, the Falcons hit the post three times, and missed two open goals when Falcons players got in their own way and therefore missed the target.

Youth grade coach Klaus Wunsch was not happy with some contentious decisions as they lost 4-2.

Reserve grade did not have any trouble to win 2-1, thanks to two goals from Nathan Belsito.

Next Saturday the Falcons play at home against University of Wollongong.

Kick-off is at 11am for youth grade, 1pm in reserves and first grade 3pm.
