Local teams avoid losses in Premier League

Both Umina United and Woy Woy soccer teams avoided losses in home games in Round Three of Central Coast Football's Premier League competition.

Umina United won 1-0 against Entrance Bateau Bay, while Woy Woy drew 0-0 against Avoca.

"Umina showed that they mean business over the weekend, beating the fierce side in The Entrance just after their glorious win over Woongarrah in round two," said Central Coast Football digital content co-ordinator Ms Jess Zavolokin.

"The Entrance had ample opportunity to score in the first half, only to meet the resistance of Umina's goalkeeper on several occasions and narrowly miss target throughout the first half.

"Umina were able to execute a lead from a corner that saw them score from 18-yards and tip the game in their favour.

"The second half was characterised by a series of shortcomings after adequate scoring opportunities from both squads.

"The Entrance made numerous attempts to equalise but were not rewarded in the end.

"Umina played with an obvious edge through to latter stages of the game, helping them to eagerly defend their clean sheet and secure a deserved result. "

Ms Zavolokin said the Woy Woy match against Avoca did not disappoint with both teams clearly enthusiastic for the win.

"Woy Woy have once again shown that they are worthy competition in the Premier League with their staunch defence disallowing Avoca FC to push a goal past them as proof," she said.

"Woy Woy were hit with a red card in the first half of the match, meaning they would have to play the rest of the game with 10 men and their ability to maintain a level result would be no easy feat.

"The second half entertained a series of impressive saves, quick passages and near-goals.

"Both teams created multiple chances, however, the execution from each side required greater precision to be on target."
