"Hornsby recorded their first win of the season with a meritorious victory over Woy Woy at Mark Taylor Oval, running out winners by 26 points to 14," said Central Coast Rugby Union publicity officer Mr Larry Thomson.
"Hornsby had the better of the first half and went to the halftime break with a well-deserved 12 points to nil lead.
"In fact, that was the difference in the match, as both teams scored two converted tries in the second half to cancel each other out at 14 points apiece.
"It was that first half effort that got the home team the win.
"The win confirms a steady improvement this season for Hornsby as the team has steadily improved throughout the year.
"Woy Woy gave it their all for the 80 minutes.
"They tried everything to bridge the gap in the second half but were unable to do so.
"Best for Woy Woy were fullback Sunita Fihaki, lock Jack Dewar and winger Blake Arahill," Mr Thomson said.
