Woy Woy wins in rugby union semi-finals
Woy Woy's Women's Sevens team and the Under-19's have had wins in the Central Coast Rugby Union Competition major semi-finals.
The Under-19's were up first and faced a polished Avoca Beach outfit at Woy Woy Oval on September 1.
"In a see-sawing encounter, the Under 19's major semi-final resulted in Woy Woy kicking a penalty goal on fulltime to defeat Avoca Beach by 23 points to 22," said Central Coast Rugby Union football officer Mr Larry Thomson.
"Woy Woy had a very good first half and went to a deserved 17 points to eight lead at the halftime break.
"Avoca Beach fought back in the second half to enable them to take the lead late in the match.
"However, the penalty goal on fulltime saw Woy Woy snatch the single point win," he said.
The win sees Woy Woy move on to the Under-19's grand final.
The Women's Sevens was also a hard fought match but Woy Woy outlasted Terrigal to secure the win, 10 points to seven.
"It was an exciting and hectic game of rugby with both teams putting on a pleasing game of sevens rugby.
"Woy Woy has reached the grand final while Terrigal and Avoca Beach will meet each other next week to see who has the right to go to the grand final," Mr Thomson said.
