Woy Woy secures first rugby union win
Woy Woy has secured its first win of the Central Coast Rugby Union season after beating Kariong 23 points to 20 in Round 9.
According to Central Coast Rugby Union publicity officer Mr Larry Thomson, it was Woy Woy's best performance so far this season.
"This was a good game of rugby," he said.
"Woy Woy had a great start to the match and led by 15 points to three early on.
"They maintained this lead, despite a Kariong comeback, and went to the halftime break leading by 15 points to 10," Mr Thomson said.
Moving into the second half both teams were aware that either side could take the win, which resulted in another energetic half.
"Both teams crossed for three tries in this match such was the tightness of the clash.
"An intercept try to Woy Woy midway through the second half was a turning point.
"At that stage, Kariong were clawing their way back into the match, but this try changed the complexion of the half.
"Woy Woy will take a lot from this match and they will trouble all teams in the second half of the season," Mr Thomson said.
