Rugby loss to Gosford
Woy Woy first grade rugby union team fell to Gosford at Woy Woy Oval on Saturday, May 21, by 40 points to 24.
Gosford were always in control and their first half performance ensured they were heading for victory.
Gosford started the game strongly and jumped away to a good start.
By half time, they had already scored four tries over Woy Woy for a bonus point and led by 28 points to 10.
Injuries to several key players did disrupt their performance but points on the board were crucial early in the game.
The second half was far more even and Woy Woy gave a more spirited effort.
Halfback Mitch Hyde was strong, as was centre Eddie Malo.
They never gave in and if Woy Woy had played more consistently for the entire 80 minutes this game could have gone either way.
The win leaves Gosford at the top of the competition ladder while Woy Woy, despite a very committed effort in this match, need to record a win soon if they are to challenge the top teams later in the competition.
