Gosford has first rugby season win against Woy Woy
Gosford recorded its first win of the season when they accounted for Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval by 26 to 7 points.
Woy Woy opened up the scoring early in the match and it was just the start they wanted.
However, this converted try lead did not last long.
Gosford were quick to respond with their own try when their five-eight Ben Shelley made a brilliant 70 metre dash to the try line.
This made the score seven-all and this was to remain the score at the halftime break.
The game was obviously evenly-matched at that stage.
Gosford, however, were gradually able to make some vital inroads in the second half and were able to cross for a further three tries in the second half to secure the victory.
At the same time, Woy Woy was unable to improve on the halftime score.
The win was a huge boost for the Gosford club after what had been a difficult few years.
Woy Woy was best served by flanker Jazper Doak-Stride, No.8 Tali Sitani and centre Corby Delaforce.
