Avoca and Wyoming were the only two Gosford area clubs to win in Round 19 of Central Coast Football’s Battlewin Premier League Competition.
Avoca beat Gosford City with a 2-nil victory in their fixture.
A sixth straight win saw Avoca set a new club record, passing their five-in-a-row at the end of the 2017 season, and also matching Killarney District’s winning run at the start of this season.
Despite this outstanding achievement, the Sharks still haven’t been able to break into the top five, sharing fifth spot with Wyoming, but behind them on goal difference.
The result sees Gosford City doomed for relegation into the Division 1 competition next season with Umina set to take their place in the BPL.
The young Dragons once again punched above their weight as they’ve done on several occasions, pressing strongly.
One of the highlights of their disappointing season has been the performance of their young Goalkeeper, Jack Arigho, who had another outstanding match keeping his side in it on several occasions.
Wyoming trumped Terrigal 2-1 in their fixture.
The match opened at a frantic pace which was well maintained throughout the first half with both teams having chances.
The breakthrough came Wyoming’s way in the 15th minute, with Ben Farrell using his blistering pace down the right wing to run onto a perfect through ball from Ian McAndrew, and then sending a perfect cross that found Pat Mills in position to score his 11th goal of the season.
The celebrations had barely ceased when the scores were level, with Cameron Wilkinson converting from the penalty spot, and the score remained locked at 1-1 until the half-time break.
Wyoming gradually built pressure throughout the second half, with Terrigal’s cause not helped by injuries to Beycan Irmako and Erik Riquelme.
Wyoming’s clinching goal was similar to their opening one, with Pat Mills being sent wide down the left wing, beating the advancing goalkeeper and crossing to substitute, Sam Dooley, to score inside the far post.
The result saw Terrigal drop from third to fourth place, while Wyoming remained in fifth spot on goal difference.
Other results from the weekend saw Killarney District beat East Gosford 4-1.
