June 26 , 2021
AAA football returned to Hayes park on Saturday as the first round of the FV FBA AAA League kicked off.
We welcomed Collingwood CityFC, Glen Eira FC, Mitchell Rangers FC, Vic Para State Team, Northcote City FC Frankston Pines SC and DOC United to Hayes Park as the players battled it out in a fantastic day of football.
We are so proud of our Northern Falcons FC AAA teams and we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to play this wonderful game regardless of age, gender, culture or ability. Thanks to FV for their support and we look forward to the next match day.
Rd.13 Seniors and DS
June 26 , 2021
The Falcons seniors won their fourth game on the trot with a hard fought 3-1 win over a plucky Brunswick Zebras courtesy of a brace by Rob Mancuso.
With the heavy rain over the previous couple of days and a DS game just completed, the boys had their work cut out on a soft and cut up pitch. To be honest they could have been in trouble in the first twenty minutes had the Zebras been more convincing in attack as they squandered some half chances which they should have made more of. Having weathered the early storm, the Falcons found their rhythm and dominated the rest of the game. A 40' screamer from Rob Mancuso from an angle outside the box flew into the top corner giving the Zebras keeper no chance and the falcons a 1-0 going into half time.
The second half was a one way traffic as the Falcons turned the screws. Josh Pizzo whipped some tantalising balls into the box but just not able to connect with a Falcons forward. Then on 71' Josh Pizzo got to the byline again and has he was about to whip the ball in got taken from behind leaving the referee no option but to award a penalty. Rob Mancuso stepped up and with a touch of luck was able to squeeze it in off the outstretched hand of the keeper. The Falcons continued to dominate and from a superbly taken Cilli free kick on 86', Siljanoski rose to header in from close range to make it 3-1. The Falcons saw out the game safely and the final whistle saw another three points in the bag as they chase the leaders.
Goals: Mancuso 40' 70, Siljanoski 86
Our Development Squad was in cruise control for the first half playing some fantastic football and leading 1-0 at the half time whistle courtesy of a Serrano goal. The second half was as big a turnaround as we've ever seen in a half of football as the Falcons DS conceded 7 goals to capitulate 7-1 by the final whistle. Not really sure what else we can say as we struggle to digest that result that no-one saw coming. Let's move on to next week and make amends.
Goals: Serrano 23'
