Ourimbah avoided an upset at Woy Woy oval

Ourimbah proved too strong for Woy Woy in Central Coast Rugby Union competition at Woy Woy Oval on Saturday, August 24.

However, Woy Woy went close to causing an upset, according to rugby union president Mr Larry Thomson.

"Ourimbah won by 38 points to 29 but the visitors were pushed all the way for the scores to end up quite close on the scoreboard at fulltime," he said.

"The early stages in the match were quite even with neither team able to get ahead for quite a while.

"It was Ourimbah who did jump ahead late in the first half and by halftime had jumped to a handy 21 points to 10 lead.

"At that stage, it seemed Ourimbah would go on with it and record a handsome win, but it was not to be."

Woy Woy outscored Ourimbah to the tune of 19 points to 17 in the second half.

"The Woy Woy backline was proving dangerous every time that they received the ball and it took Ourimbah all their experience to maintain their halftime lead in the second half.

"Best for Woy Woy were Enosi Siale, No.8 Joel Frazer and flanker Corey Fleming."

The win sees Ourimbah remain at the top of the ladder in what is proving a close race to the Minor Premiership.

Ourimbah's Premier 1 defeat of Woy Woy was repeated in three other grades.

In Premier 2, Ourimbah defeated Woy Woy, 48-5. In President's Cup, the margin was 43-0.

The Women's team was more even, losing by 20-19.

In Colts, The Lakes Maroon defeated Woy Woy, 66-19.
