Woy Woy were defeated by Terrigal in their Round 6 clash of the Central Coast Rugby Union Competition.
Central Coast Rugby Union publicity officer Mr Larry Thomson said it was an exceptional game of rugby with Terrigal simply outlasting Woy Woy to a 38 to 22 point win.
“It was Woy Woy’s best performance of the year despite their loss, but the undefeated Terrigal were able to stave them off.
“However, for much of the first half, and well into the second half, it was Woy Woy who were doing most of the attacking, having received a steady flow of good ball.
“However, some dropped passes at vital times did prove costly for Woy Woy during this period,” Mr Thomson said.
“Woy Woy led at the halftime break by 15 points to 12 and an upset seemed possible but as the game progressed Terrigal steadily gained control, taking the lead and the win.
“Woy Woy played well and will take a lot from this match.
“Their best players included five-eight Wade Hannell, fullback Fokolulu Taumalolo, who crossed for two tries, and halfback Damon Boxsell,” Mr Thomson said.
