FALCONS MAKE IT A DOUBLE!!!

For the first time since 1988 Falcons won both the League and Reserves pennants
last Saturday in front of a huge crowd at Bulgarra Oval.


LEAGUE

LEAGUE Falcons 12.10 to Rovers 6.14
 
Falcons League side ended up on top of the ladder for season 2010, but only on percentage
from Rovers and both had won 2 games each for the season so the grandfinal saw the two
teams take to the field with steely resolve. The crowd had built to nearly 1500 and were
in for a terrific display of tough, hard football. The first quarter was a tight and even
affair with both teams showing why they were the best in the league for 2010. A knee
injury to Macca late in the quarter saw the forward line without one of its spearheads
for the rest of the game.  Falcons went to quarter time 3.4 to Rovers 2.1. The second
quarter saw Falcons defence come right into the game with great defensive work by
Dave Drummond, Dean O’Brien, Ben Brady and Cameron Ling that kept the Rovers goalless
and we went to the half time break Falcons 5.6 to Rovers 2.5.The third quarter saw a
serious knee injury to Ash Milligan one of the Falcons most influential players and he
was taken straight off and took no further part in the game. This galvanised the side
and they started to gain supremacy around the ground. With Shaun Sullivan drawing two
players in the forward line and Dan Fuller marking superbly and his accurate kicking saw
the Falcons go into the three quarter time break 9.8 to Rovers 4.10.The last quarter was
a hard fought affair with Rovers never giving in and but for inaccurate kicking by Rovers
the final score did not reflect the high quality game from both teams. Falcons ran out
winners by 32 points to make it a double celebration. This was a supreme team effort by
all players and they should be proud of the way they played for each other and the club.

Well deserved.Final Score was Falcons 12.10 to Rovers 6.14 with Falcons Dan
Fuller was B.O.G. 


RESERVES

RESERVES 9.7 to Sharks 8.6
 
Dampier Sharks supporters turned up in numbers to support their team who although
losing to Falcons in the last game of the home and away season, had claimed the
minor premiership 3 weeks previously and who had then beaten the Falcons in the
2nd semi to get the weeks break and go straight into the grandfinal. Both teams were
confident of their chances and when the game got underway Dampier got off to a flyer
scoring 4 goals and keeping Falcons goalless to go to the first break Sharks 4.3 to
Falcons 0.2. The second quarter saw some very tough and hard football played with
Falcons pushing forward regularly to get on the board with 2 goals and keep them in
the game. Half time saw Sharks 4.4 to Falcons 2.4
The third quarter saw the tempo step up a notch or two and Falcons started to get a bit
of run thanks to a number of players like Les Van Le, Mat Nowotny and Dayne Corps
experience playing loose in the backline. Four goals saw the Falcons take the lead by
a point at three quarter time to set up an exciting last quarter. Falcons 6.5 to Sharks 6.4.
The last quarter was a nail biter and saw Falcons down to 3 on the bench and with the
lead changing a number of times it was Ben Walsh that took a number of telling marks
putting the ball into our forward 50 time and again. Les Van Le kicked two goals to tie
the scores with less than 6 minutes to go and then Josh Stanley kicked a goal to put us
a goal in front. The siren finally sounded with Falcons winning by 7 points in an excellent
game of football to make it 4 flags in a row for the Reserves. Congratulations to Ben
Brierley on his 50th game for the Falcons. 

Final Score - Falcons 9.7 to Sharks 8.6 Falcons player Les Van Le was
named B.O.G.
