Woy Woy topples Gosford in rugby union
Woy Woy has toppled Gosford in Round 14 of the Central Coast Rugby Union competition.
"This match was a try fest to say the least," said Central Coast Rugby Union publicity officer, Mr Larry Thomson.
"Attack seemed to be the key to the day while the defence from both teams seemed to be a secondary factor.
"Gosford went to the halftime break leading by 21 point to 14.
"Gosford deserved their lead through some very good rugby.
"However, Woy Woy took the lead early in the second half when they crossed for two very quick tries.
"They had jumped to the lead by 26 points to 21.
"At that stage, it seemed the home side would go on with it and secure a comfortable victory, but it was not to be," Mr Thomson said.
"Gosford got back into the match and pushed the home side right through to full time. It was a tight struggle throughout, but Woy Woy were able to outlast the visitors on the scoreboard," he said.
Best players for Woy Woy were Dante Otto, Wes Black and Alifeleti Atiola, who led Woy Woy's excellent attacking team.
"Woy Woy will have to work on their defence over the next few weeks as they allowed Gosford to score too readily during the match," Mr Thomson said.
The win sees Woy Woy hold on to third spot on the competition ladder but, with teams just out of the top four, they cannot afford to relax in the coming weeks, he said.
