Falcons snare two

THERE are no easy games in the Football South Coast District League competition, as the Oak Flats Falcons found out last Saturday at Keith Bond Oval.

First grade won 3-1, youth grade lost 1-0 and reserve grade won 3-0, all facing stiff opposition from the University of Wollongong.

In the first grade game, the first stanza was tight with no score at half-time, despite a number of opportunities for both teams.

The home side opened the second half by taking the lead with the first of two goals by Nathan Belsito, who was named player of the match.

Youth grade coach Klaus Wunsch was badly handicapped with a number of key players out with injuries, and was forced to field an understrength side.

The side didn't have many chances, but perhaps deserved a draw.

Reserve grade coaches Michael Guinery and Nathan Porteous were pleased with their side's performance, dominating for most of the game with goals from Brendon Burke (two) and Christian Cappetta.

An outstanding show of talent by keeper Chris Jarman kept the opposition bar of any scoring.

Next weekend at Keith Bond Oval the Falcons host competition leaders Shell Cove in all three grades.

Kick-off is at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. This will be a real test of strength for the home team.
