Woy Woy were never troubled on the scoreboard, leading 14-8 at half-time.
The Lions dominated the set pieces which allowed them to make good metres up the field and score some wonderful tries.
Best for Woy Woy were forwards Sam Soane, Chris Hitch and Alifeleti.
Woy Woy now sits in fifth place on the leader, with 20 points.
Woy Woy Rugby Club patron Mr Peter (Fab) Fenton said it was the best win of the season, placing the team just two points out of the top four.
"It was a tremendous game in which the Lions pack dominated the set scrums and the entire team defended magnificently," Mr Fenton said.
"However the win was soured by serious injury to exciting young flanker Lapana Vitale who suffered a broken leg and will miss the rest of the season," he said.
"He had been in superb form."
