Woy Woy has fierce rugby contest with Lake Macquarie

The match between the Lake Macquarie and Woy Woy at Walters Park, Boolaroo, in round eight of Central Coast Rugby Union competition on Saturday, June 15, saw a fierce contest from start to finish.

Lake Macquarie won the match by 26 points to 17 but they did not have it all their own way, according Rugby Union publicity officer Mr Larry Thomson.

Lake Macquarie scored the opening try and they led by seven points to three early on.

Lake Macquarie controlled proceedings and went to a handy 19-3 lead close to halftime.

"But to Woy Woy's great credit, their never say die attitude came to the fore," said Mr Thomson.

They scored their first try late in the half to reduce the lead to 19 points to 10 at the halftime break.

"The second half was an even affair and both teams played some pleasing rugby.

"They levelled the scores at seven points apiece in the second half, so it was the home side Lake Macquarie who held on for the win.

"It was their first half performance that got the home side through to victory.

"It was a far better performance by the Woy Woy team and they will get stronger and stronger as the season progresses."

Best players for Lake Macquarie were flanker Joe Lewer, centre Ifan Hunnam and No.8 Rob Buaserau.

Woy Woy's better players were halfback Mitch Hyde, No 8 Tali Sitani and hooker Sione Fanua.

Jacob Mills posted 12 personal points in the match for the visitors.

In Premier 2 competition, Lake Macquarie defeated Woy Woy, 34-12.

In Women's 10s, Lake Macquarie defeated Woy Woy, 58-0.

Club president Mr Phil Burgess said: "The games were much closer in both senior men's sides with only nine points difference in first grade men.

"The women returned to Lake Macquarie after a previous visit where they had faired terribly with injuries.

"Today it was great to see smiles after the game.

"It wasn't a win on the scoreboard, but it was a win for team spirit.

"I'm proud of all players in terrible conditions."
