REPORT :
The Match of the Day at The Haven Oval yesterday saw Terrigal defeat Ourimbah by 41 points to 22. The win by Terrigal ended Ourimbah’s undefeated run for the season and certainly opened up this year’s Central Coast Rugby Union competition. It was a hard fought and even struggle for three quarters of the match but it was Terrigal who dominated the latter stages of the match to secure a pleasing victory for the home side. The first half was a totally even affair with the two teams going to the halftime break level at 15 points apiece. Both teams had periods of attack followed by some great defence. Ourimbah were striving to maintain their unbeaten run while Terrigal were attempting to record their first win over Ourimbah in quite a while. The second half continued in much the same way. Both teams were able to cross for a converted try each at the start of the second period. At the midway points of this half the scores were still all locked up, at 22 points each. It was still anybody’s match. It was a typical clash between the two best performed teams in this year’s competition. However, it was Terrigal who stormed home in that final 20 minutes. They were able to post an impressive 19 points in the final quarter of the match to record their best win of the season. Best players for Terrigal were hooker Jim Storey, locks Alex Brewin and Josh Vainikolo, and prop Kevin McNamara. Best performers for Ourimbah were halfback Josh Holman, prop Cameron Kesby and lock Josefa Biu. It was a most impressive team effort by the Terrigal outfit. The win sees Terrigal replace Ourimbah as leaders in the race to the Minor Premiership. Both teams are locked on 64 points and the Minor Premiership will be decided in the final round next Saturday.

The Lakes defeated Warnervale by 46 points to 28 at Slade Park in such an important victory for the home side. The win sees The Lakes cement fourth spot on the competition ladder and the Final Four for this year has already been decided with one round to go. It was a most dominant performance by The Lakes in a match that most people thought would go right down to the wire. The Lakes controlled proceedings right from the start and by halftime led by 29 points to 7. The home side all but had the match secure at that stage but there was to be no relenting on the scoreboard. The second half was a far more even affair with Warnervale actually slightly outscoring The Lakes by 21 points to 17 but it was all too late for the visitors. The win will see The Lakes play in the Minor Semifinal in 2 week’s time against Gosford. Best players for The Lakes were forward James McCombie and back Peni Raulini, who both scored 2 tries apiece. Best for Warnervale were Brenton Acreman, Potika Phiva and Dean Crofskey.

Avoca Beach ended their season with a win over Kariong at Kariong Oval, running out winners by 30 points to 22. Having the bye in their final round, Avoca Beach would have enjoyed finishing the season with a pleasing win. It was a close encounter throughout the match. Avoca Beach went to the halftime break with the narrow lead of 12 points to 10. The second half continued in the same vein as the first. Avoca Beach did score 5 tries to 4 and this fact alone demonstrated the closeness of the clash. A feature of the match were the 3 tries scored by 2 players. Avoca Beach’s Shaun Townsend crossed for 3 tries, as did Kariong’s Rob Brown. Despite the win, Avoca Beach will just miss out on the Final Four for this year. Best players for Avoca Beach were lock Elliott Dawkins, hooker Fion Henderson-Foley, and Shaun Townsend. Best performers for Kariong were Rob Brown, Richard Harvey and Scott Hanley.

Woy Woy recorded their second win of the season when they accounted for Hornsby by 42 points to 19 at Woy Woy Oval. It was a most pleasing effort by the team and it was a well deserved victory. Woy Woy went to the halftime break leading by 14 points to 5 however they went on with it in the second stanza. It was a rewarding way for Woy Woy to hit back after what has been a frustrating season for them. Best players for Woy Woy were Sunita Fihaki, Joseva Kunawave and Alex Moore. Hornsby gave it their all but it was just not their day in this “battle of the lions”. Best for the visitors were Harry Fox, who scored 2 tries, Sam White and Mitch Fullager.

At Gosford Showground The Entrance was too strong for Gosford in the President’s Cup, running out winners by 52 points to 19.

Women’s 7’s rugby yesterday saw all eight teams in action. Most results went as expected with several teams in line to make the Finals this year. Wins were recorded by Avoca Beach, Terrigal, The Lakes and Woy Woy.

REPORT :
The seaside derby at Heazlett Park, in the Match of the Day, saw Terrigal easily account for Avoca Beach by 59 points to 13. In front of an enthusiastic crowd, Terrigal took control of the match almost from the opening whistle and were never headed in the contest. The first 40 minutes had Terrigal in control of both territory and possession. In fact by halftime they had jumped to a comfortable 26 points to 6 lead and things seemed almost a foregone conclusion in the match even at that stage. Terrigal were playing some very strong rugby and both their attack and defence were on song. Best players for Terrigal at this stage were lock Josh Vainikolo, who crossed for 2 tries, Alex Brewin and back Jayden Woolley. But it was their whole team who were playing well. Avoca Beach were trying everything to stay in touch but it just proved too difficult to do so. The story was much the same in the second half. Terrigal continued to dominate and they were able to post a further 33 points in the final 40 minutes. The form of Terrigal is an ominous sign heading to the Finals. Avoca Beach never stopped trying. In fact they were rewarded with a try near fulltime but it was all too late for the home team. Best players for Avoca Beach were Harrison Bowcock, Alex Halls, and prop Jake McPhie. Terrigal, with this win, cement themselves in second spot on the competition ladder and can now start preparing for the Major Semi-final in 4 weeks time. Avoca Beach, with the loss, are now in a struggle with The Lakes and Warnervale for fourth spot on the ladder.

Warnervale caused a minor upset when they defeated Gosford at Woongarrah Oval by 24 points to 21. This was a quite even affair throughout. Gosford opened the scoring with a converted try but Warnervale quickly responded with heir own converted try to make the score 7 all midway through the first half. Gosford did take some control of the match late in the first half when they crossed for two further tries to go to the halftime break leading by 21 points to 7. This was a handy lead in the match but Gosford however were unable to post any further points in the second half. On the other hand, Warnervale were able to score 3 tries in the final 40 minutes to clinch the match. Gosford led by 21 points to 19 with time running out but Warnervale crossed for their match winning fourth try right on fulltime. The win sees Warnervale still with a chance of making the Top Four while Gosford, while disappointed with the result, know they have cemented third spot on the competition ladder. It all makes for a very interesting final two rounds in the competition to see which club actually locks in fourth position on the ladder. The best players for Warnervale were fullback Ben Butler, who crossed for 2 tries in the second half, and centre Scott Fitzpatrick. Best for Gosford was lock Alec Corcoran and five-eight Adam Carlisle.

The Lakes came from behind to defeat Hornsby by 36 points to 19 at Mark Taylor Oval. This match was definitely one of two halves. The first half saw Hornsby in control. They went to the halftime break leading by 19 points to 5 and everything appeared to be in their favour. It was not the position The Lakes needed to be in but Hornsby demonstrated some fine rugby to take this handy lead. However the second half was a totally different ball game. The Lakes responded with 31 points in the second half while Hornsby remained scoreless. It was an amazing turn around both on the paddock and on the scoreboard. The Lakes certainly needed the win as they are now in clear fourth spot on the competition ladder but know they have teams looming just behind them. Best players for The Lakes were halfback Logan Hemopo, fullback Macui Raulini and Latham Walters. Best for Hornsby were backs Harry Fox, Leone Naisaorotaboa and Sam White.

Ourimbah continued on their winning ways with a strong win over Kariong at Kariong Oval, running out victors by 53 points to 5. Ourimbah got away to a great start and were never headed. In fact, by halftime, Ourimbah led by 34 points to 5 and the match was already secured away at that stage. Kariong simply had no answer to the Ourimbah attack. Ourimbah showed why they have gone through the season undefeated and showed why they are the Premiership favourites leading into the Finals. The win also puts them in good stead for their big clash next Saturday against fellow frontrunners Terrigal. Ourimbah were good all day. Best players for them were Mavae Muru Teutau, who crossed for 3 individual tries, halfback Matt King, and prop Jordan Clark. However it was a good all round performance by the whole team. Best for Kariong were Ricky Walter, and flankers Lachlan Peruch and Josh Bottero.
Woy Woy defeated The Entrance in President’s Cup by 24 points to 17 in a close match at Joseph Banks Oval.

Women’s 7’s rugby continued to enthral on the Central Coast. Terrigal confirmed their status as Premiership favourites when they accounted for last year’s Premiers Avoca Beach. The Lakes also continued their improving form when they defeated Hornsby.

REPORT :
As the season heads to the Finals, matches in Central Coast Rugby Union are certainly heating up. There were some quite interesting results in matches played yesterday.

The Match of the Day at Gosford Showground saw Gosford defeat Avoca Beach by 22 points to 13. It was a quite even affair throughout with neither team feeling secure at any time in terms of winning the match. Avoca Beach played some pleasing rugby in the first half and they went to the halftime break leading by 8 points to 5. The match was anybody’s at that stage. Both teams had crossed for the lone try each and both teams were finding it difficult to make inroads into the opposition defence. However it was Gosford who gained the upper hand in the second stanza and they were able to score 3 tries to one in that final 40 minutes. Best performances for the home team were put in by Ryan Conaghan, Mitch Cornwell and Vince Stewart. Best for Avoca Beach were Blake Jacob, Shaun Townsend and Mitch Jacob. The win sees Gosford cement third spot on the competition ladder while Avoca Beach are now equal fourth with The Lakes. It all makes for an intense struggle between Avoca Beach and The Lakes in the race for the Finals.

Kariong caused a minor upset when they defeated The Lakes by 36 points to 28 at Slade Park. It was an important match for The Lakes who needed the win to get back into the Top Four. However it was not to be. Kariong had the better of the first half and were able to go to the halftime break leading by 24 points to 14. It was a very handy lead and one that they were able to hang on to for the remainder of the match. The Lakes fought back well in the second half and with 5 minutes to go in the match the score was Kariong 29 The Lakes 28. It was a dramatic finish. The Lakes missed a penalty goal in the final moments but it was Kariong who secured the win with a converted try right at the end of the contest. Best players for Kariong were Justin Walker, Ryan Wallbank, Jackson Beresford and Lachlan Peruch. The best performers for The Lakes were Blake Moroney, Michael Ferry and Logan Hemopo. It was one of Kariong’s best performances this year. For The Lakes, they did secure a bonus point with four tries, so do join Avoca Beach in equal fourth spot on the ladder – this was a small consolation for them.

Ourimbah defeated Warnervale at Ourimbah Rugby Park by 37 points to 36 in a close and intense contest. It was such a narrow win. Warnervale started the match well and scored the first converted try. However for much of the first half the two teams went head to head both on the paddock and on the scoreboard. Warnervale led by 24 points to 15 midway through the first half but Ourimbah slowly got back into the match, and by halftime the Warnervale lead had been narrowed to 24 points to 22. The lead changed several times in the second half. It was certainly proving a nerve wracking contest, both for the players and supporters of both teams. Warnervale were putting on one of their best efforts this season. The Ourimbah scrum was proving completely dominant but Warnervale were overcoming this dominance with some great play in general. Ourimbah snared the victory right on fulltime when they kicked a penalty goal. Ourimbah had maintained their undefeated record this season but Warnervale would consider themselves quite unlucky to lose this match. Best player for Ourimbah was Mavae Muru Teutau who crossed for two tries. The standout player for Warnervale was Ben Butler, and he was well supported by Cameron McNamara and Dean Crofskey.

Terrigal scored the biggest win of the season when they completely outplayed Woy Woy at The Haven Oval by 133 points to nil. Terrigal crossed for 21 tries in the match and Woy Woy simply had no answer. Jayden Woolley posted 27 personal points in the match, while winger Brent Merritt also crossed for 4 tries. It was a totally controlled performance and Terrigal are striking great form at the right time of the season.

Women’s 7’s rugby witnessed some interesting match ups on Saturday. Wins to Terrigal, Ourimbah and The Lakes saw these three teams improve their positions on the competition ladder.

REPORT :
The fifth last round in Central Coast Rugby Union yesterday proved the most interesting this year. As the competition builds towards the Finals Series all teams are trying their best to make their mark on this year’s competition. Some teams are trying to reach the Finals while others are simply trying to perform well in their remaining few matches.

The Match of the Day yesterday saw Terrigal prove too strong for Gosford at Gosford Showground and ran out winners by 45 points to 19. Terrigal proved dominant right from the opening whistle. They were quick to the breakdown and their backline showed poise and speed to get over the advantage line on numerous occasions. Terrigal opened the scoring with a converted try and it did control proceedings in the opening minutes. Gosford did respond however with a very good 50 metre try of their own to level the scores at 7 all early in the match. However it was in the middle stages of the first half that Terrigal really did play some very effective rugby. As a result of this play they crossed for three further tries in this period to take a very handy lead of 26 points to 7. At that stage it seemed all was over unless Gosford responded quickly. Both teams did score a try each in the final minutes of the first half for Terrigal to go to the halftime break leading by 33 points to 12. It did prove a match winning lead. Terrigal deserved the lead and Gosford were finding it hard to find any answers to their attack. Best players for Terrigal were flankers Sam Kenny and Ryan Metcalfe, five-eight Jayden Woolley, outside centre Arana Taumata and lock Will McDonald. Gosford were trying everything to stay in the match. Their best players on the day included forwards Vince Stewart and Jackson Steinbeck, Adam Carlisle, in his 300th Premier 1 match, and centre Josh McGlynn. The second half was a far more even affair with some pleasing rugby on display. Terrigal did only score 2 tries to one in the final 40 minutes but their first half performance did cement their final victory. The win sees Terrigal firmly placed in second spot on the competition ladder with 4 weeks remaining the competition.

The match at Heazlett Park between Avoca Beach and The Lakes ended in a 37 all draw. It was certainly a cliff- hanger. There was absolutely nothing in this match throughout, obviously on the scoreboard and on the paddock. The Lakes led at halftime by the narrow margin of 21 points to 17 and play continued in much the same vein in the last 40 minutes. This draw leaves Avoca Beach in fourth spot on the competition ladder but only the one point in front of The Lakes in fifth spot. It will be real tussle between these two teams from here on in to see who qualifies for the semi-finals this year. This match proved there is nothing between them in this race. It was an enthralling game at Heazlett, and certainly the crowd on hand were on edge for the entire 80 minutes. Best players for Avoca Beach were back Mitch Jacob, prop Luke Sheridan, and Zac Montgomery in his first appearance in the top grade. The Lakes had several good performers also. None were better than their fullback Macui Raulini, who crossed for 2 tries, Eddie Vuniwawa and Noah Halapipi. Avoca Beach did score 5 tries to 4 but good goal kicking kept The Lakes on an even keel on the scoreboard. The remaining four rounds this season makes for an interesting struggle between these two teams for the Finals.

The other two matches on Coast yesterday were very close. Kariong defeated Hornsby by 27 points to 24 at Kariong Oval. There was nothing in this match also for the entire 80 minutes. Hornsby did actually score 4 tries to 3 but the goal kicking of Kariong flanker Lachlan Peruch kept them in the match and in front on the scoreboard. Kariong led by the narrow margin of 14 points to 12 at the halftime break and they were able to maintain that difference for the remainder of the match. Hornsby would be most disappointed in the final result and for the second week in a row they have been close but not close enough at the end of the day. Best players for Kariong were Lachlan Peruch, Ryan Wallbank, and Jayden Stanley. Hornsby were best served by Toby Forde, who crossed for two individual tries, Tevita Palu, and Sossasia Akaveka.

The other close match was at Woy Woy Oval which saw Warnervale hang on for a narrow 29 points to 24 win over the home side Woy Woy. Like the game above, the losing side scored more tries on the day but lost the match. Woy Woy scored 4 tries to Warnervale’s 3 but it was excellent goal kicking by Warnervale’s Cameron McNamara that kept them in the match and in front at fulltime. The match was very even in the first half and Warnervale went to the halftime break with only a narrow lead of 14 points to 12 so it was all up for grabs in the final 40 minutes. Best players for Warnervale were back Ben Butler, Brenton Acreman, Cameron McNamara and Jared Pomare. Woy Woy went close to getting the win but it was not to be. Best players for the home side were Fokolulu Taumololo and Jackson Dewar, who both scores a pair of tries each, and Luke McIntyre.

Ourimbah secured a comfortable win in President’s Cup when they defeated The Entrance by 54 points to 7 at Joseph Banks Oval.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw some hard fought clashes over the weekend. Wins to Avoca Beach, Hornsby and Woy Woy saw these three teams help secure their positions in the semi-finals.

REPORT :
Round 13 in Central Coast Rugby Union continued yesterday with some enthralling games of rugby, but also with some very convincing victories.

The Match of the Day saw Terrigal play some of their best rugby of the season to gain a massive 82 points to 0 victory over Warnervale at Woongarrah Oval. It was one way traffic from the start to the finish. Warnervale simply had no answer to the continual onslaught. They tried to stem the flow but could simply make no headway. Terrigal went to the halftime break leading by 36 points to nil and the match was already over by then. Terrigal continued to play outstanding rugby in the second half and were able to post a further 46 points in the final 40 minutes. Terrigal crossed for 14 tries in the match. Best players for Terrigal were outside centre Arana Taumata, who crossed for 2 tries, forward Josh Vainikolo and Jayden Woolley, who posted a personal tally of 17 points. The win sees Terrigal maintain second spot on the competition ladder while the Finals’ hopes for Warnervale appear to have disappeared this season.

Avoca Beach continued their good recent form when they defeated Hornsby by 33 points to 12 at Mark Taylor Oval. The first half was a totally even affair and both teams went to the halftime break locked at nil all. Both teams had their chances to score in the first 40 minutes but good defence from both teams prevented any points scoring in that period. However the second half was a quite different story. A total of 45 points were posted in the second half but 33 of those were scored by Avoca Beach. The visitors played the better rugby in that second period and deserved the win. Hornsby on the other hand would be most disappointed with their efforts during that period. Avoca Beach were able to cross for 5 tries in the final 40 minutes while Hornsby were only able to respond with two. Best players for Avoca Beach were Brad Mitchell, who scored a try, Jake McPhie and Mitch Jacob. Hornsby was best served by five-eight Sam White and front rower Angus McQueen. The win sees Avoca Beach go back into the Top Four at the expense of The Lakes.

Gosford hang on to defeat Kariong by 22 points to 15 at Kariong Oval. This was a very tight match throughout and Gosford would be most relived to get the victory. The first half was very close and Gosford only led by 10 points to 7 at the halftime break. The cold windy conditions were having an effect on all matches but especially on the hill at Kariong. Gosford always stayed in front on the scoreboard but Kariong were also always in shooting range. Late in the second half Gosford led by 19 points to 15 and a late penalty goal made the final score 22 -15. Gosford scored 3 tries to two and that fact showed the closeness of the match. Gosford cement their third position on the ladder and will be looking forward to their clash with second placed Terrigal next Saturday. Both teams played quite good rugby in the conditions. Best players for Gosford were veteran Adam Carlisle, who crossed for 2 tries, and debutant Nale Fanua. Best for Kariong were flanker Mick Farrell and fullback Kyle Sabroe.

Ourimbah defeated Woy Woy very easily at Ourimbah Rugby Park and the final score was 67 points to 0. Like the match at Woongarrah, this match was totally dominated by one team, Ourimbah. They controlling proceedings from the opening whistle and were never in doubt of getting the victory. Ourimbah went to the halftime break leading by 36 points to nil and were in total control. Woy Woy did play a little better in the second half but the match was well and truly gone by that stage. Best players for Ourimbah were No.8 Jarrod Grange, winger Trent Harrison, prop Jordan Clark and centre Brenton Law. However it was an excellent overall team performance by the home side to enable them to maintain their undefeated run this season. Best for Woy Woy were Alex Moore and Kane Burns.

The Lakes secured a vital win in President’s Cup when they defeated The Entrance by 26 points to 21 at Slade Park. This was a hard fought clash from start to finish.
