RND 14: Falcons Return to Form and take the Double

0000 

LEAGUE: Falcons 18.10 def Kats 6.4

After the shock loss to Rovers the week before and our coach not available for this week’s game it was Mick Formancyzk that stepped up to the role of coach. Kats looked to be the bigger side and had Damien Peverill playing and with Falcons missing MJ with a broken ankle and Aaron Wheeler with a CL injury we would need to play our best football to secure a win.

The first quarter saw Macca take the ruck and with great defence by Deano and Danny F-Z, Falcons got the first goal on the board within 2 minutes with a second in under 5 minutes. Good hard football and great team work saw Falcons at quarter time 6.3 to Kats 3.0. Vic Belotti came back into the team after 4 weeks off due to injury and started in the forward line but moved into the ruck and started to dominate with some superb taps to Mick F-Z and Ash Milligan which resulted in a 5 goal 2nd quarter to end the half Falcons 11.4 to Kats 5.2.

With Mick F-Z Captain / Coach for the night the bench was being run by Wheels, Gavin Jacks and Old Boy Sully who had the interchange cranking with timed changeouts resulting in fresh legs across the centre which put pressure on the Kats and kept them goaless in the third. The last quarter saw Falcons run out the game kicking another 5 goals and keeping Kats to a single goal scored after the final siren to end the game Falcons 18.10 to Kats 6.4

Mick F-Z played the best game we have seen for the club, leading from the front, he was hard at the ball with 3 of the best shirtfronts seen and winning the ball out of the centre to feed into the forward line. Great game also to Mick Martyn just awesome commitment to winning the ball and with five goals to Sully we proved that we aren’t out of contention for the flag and if we can secure a win against Dampier we will retain top spot and a home final.

RESERVES: Falcons 16.13 def Kats 9.7

The reserves game started a more even affair with only straight kicking keeping us in front at the quarter time break Falcons 4.0 to Kats 3.2. The second quarter saw Falcons dominate the play but our inaccuracy and the pressure from the Kats defenders resulted in a halftime score of 7.8 to Kats 4.2. Kats came out after half time and outscored us for the quarter to get within 22 points which spurred the Falocns boys onto a dominate last quarter to post a convincing win Falcons 16.13 to Kats 9.7. Great game to AJ, Jai Wheeler, Matt Nowotny and with Ben Brierly starting to get some match fitness we go into the last game of the home and away fixtures against Dampier to see who will end up minor premiers for 2010.

RND 13: ROVERS TAKE THE DOUBLE 

The Bulldogs travelled to Karratha for the top of the ladder clash last Saturday with one goal in mind and after four hours of hard fought football came away triumphant with two wins.  

League01
LEAGUE: Rovers 8.19 def Falcons 9.7.
 

The league started with Rovers showing the Falcons they were here to play and in the first part of the first quarter Rovers peppered the goals and it was only the Falcons
backline applying great pressure that kept them in the game. The first break saw Rovers 2.10 to Falcons 1.4. The second quarter saw the Falcons settle with the backline
and midfielders beginning to gain ascendancy. A couple of excellent passages of play resulted in a 5 goal quarter for Falcons to go to the main break Falcons 6.6 Rovers 2.10. 
The third quarter was an even tussle with both teams scoring 2.1 apiece to end the third quarter Falcons 8.7 Rovers 4.11.The last quarter saw both teams hard at the ball
and it was only at the 19 minute mark that Rovers hit the front for the first time since the second quarter to lead by 8 points. Falcons then scored a late goal to reduce the
deficit to under a goal. The last few minutes of the game saw Rovers score 4 points to end the game Rovers 8.19 Falcons 9.7.
 

 


Reserves01
RESERVES: Rovers 9.15 defeated Falcons 8.7.
  

The Reserves game was also a hard fought affair with Rovers dominating early in the first quarter and it was only two late goals by Adrian Third that saw the score at
Falcons 3.0 Rovers 3.4 at the first break. Falcons kicked truly in  the second quarter and went into halftime 4 points up, Falcons 7.2 Rovers 5.8. The third quarter saw
Falcons kept goalless while Rovers inaccuracy in front of gaol continued and they went into the last with a 1 point lead. Rovers 6.12 Falcons 7.5. Rovers then kicked away in
the last to run out winners by 14 points. Rovers 9.15 defeated Falcons 8.7.

100 Games for Shaun Sullivan

Last week saw Sully play his 100th game for the Falcons Football club. Shaun sets another couple of records for the Falcons by becoming the youngest player [23]to reach 100 games, the quickest to play 100 games having missed only 1 game in the past 6 years and by becoming the first father, John Sullivan and son combination to play 100 games each for the club. Shaun has proved to be a first class forward for the Falcons, being the leading goal kicker for the Falcons for the past 4 years , kicking a record 17 goals in a game in 2009, NPFL Leading Goal Kicker in 2009 and is a 2006 Premiership player.
Quite a record as a player but Shaun has also served on the committee, is currently the players social club coordinator and is always helping out around the club. 
Congratulations Shaun on a fantastic contribution to the Falcons Football Club from all the players and supporters.

RND 11: Falcons v Swans


Mick Formancyzk Cody Hancock 

LEAGUE (Half time scores) Falcons 13.10.88 to Swans 0.1.1

The league game saw the Swans reserves team take to the field for their second game of the night and with Falcons playing one of their strongest sides for the season it was a very one sided affair. Falcons dominated to end the first quarter 7.4 to 0.1. The second quarter saw more of the same with Falcons ending the half 13.10 to 0.1. The game was then called off by the NPFL Umpires Convenor, Peter Lynch. Falcons have put in an official query on the validity of this ruling so we will keep you informed. We also suffered a number of injuries with a serious injury to Gavin Jacks [collarbone] Jamie Lee [groin] and Aaron Wheeler [ ankle].

Leading Goalscorer on the night was Shaun Sullivan with 6.3

 

Reserves Team v Swans 2

RESERVES

Swans came out in the opening term of the reserves game determined to put on a good showing and they proceeded to give the Falcons boys a footy lesson kicking 6 goals straight before Falcons could score their first goal. The quarter ended with Swans 7.3 to Falcons 2.0. Falcons fought back in the second quarter to outscore the Swans and finish the half Swans 9.4 to Falcons 6.4. The second half saw Swans consolidate to run out winners Swans 16.10.106 to Falcons 11.5.71.

Reserves Mug of the Week v Swans

Congratulations to Luke [The Italian Stallion] Dicera on being voted best on field by the ressies team. Luke has just joined the senior Falcons but has played with the Falcons Juniors since U/10’s.

 


 

50 Games for Ian Drummond

Yet another milestone was reached with Ian Drummond playing his 50th game for the Falcons Football Club. Ian [the good looking one], along with twin brother Dave have played with the Falcons Seniors for the past four seasons coming through the Falcons Junior Club. Prior to that Ian played for the Margaret River Hawks. Ian is a versatile player, able to hold down either a backline, forward line or ruck position, with his height being a valuable asset to the team.  Congratulations and at only 20 years of age we look forward to a long career at the Falcons Football Club.
