with No Comments
Hassocks Under 10s Falcons, runners up at the Hurst Tournament on Saturday afternoon

The Falcons breezed through the group stage with five wins from five. A 1.0 win in the next game saw the Falcons lift their semi final curse and play in their first ever final at their third attempt. 
The final, against a strong opposition, saw the Falcons behind for the first time on the day but a last minute equaliser sent the match to extra time. With neither team able to find the net, the game went to penalties which the Falcons unfortunately came up short and lost 4-3. 
The Falcons, like every team over the last 18 months, have had to battle with Covid lockdowns and various restarts. All the players and those involved have been amazing throughout the season, fitness levels were kept up during the last lockdown with a weekly Zoom fitness session kindly hosted by LT Fitness and virtual distance challenges were set by the coaches.
