Woy Woy hung on to defeat Gosford by 50 points to 40 at Woy Woy Oval. This match was a try fest to say the least. Attack seemed to be the key to the day while the defence from both teams seemed to be a secondary factor. Gosford went to the halftime break leading by 21 point to 14. Gosford deserved their lead through some very good rugby.

Woy Woy took the lead early in the second half when they crossed for two very quick tries. Woy Woy had jumped to the lead by 26 points to 21. At that stage it seemed the home side would go on with it and secure a comfortable victory, but it was not to be. Gosford got back into the match and pushed the home side right through to full time. It was a tight struggle throughout but Woy Woy were able to outlast the visitors on the scoreboard.

Best players for Woy Woy were Dante Otto, Wes Black and Alifeleti Atiola. These three players led what was a good attacking team. They will have to work on their defence mechanisms over the next few weeks as they allowed Gosford to score too readily during the match.

Gosford were best served by centre Josh McGlynn, who had a wonderful match, as well as veteran back Adam Carlisle. These two players led a visitor resurgence when things seemed lost early in the second half.

The win sees Woy Woy hold on to third spot on the competition ladder, but with teams just out of the Top Four, they cannot afford to relax in the coming weeks.  ccru
