The Central Coast rugby competition continued in Round 5 with some very interesting and exciting matches. The Match of the Day saw Terrigal run out very convincing winners over Woy Woy at The Haven Oval by 50 points to 8. Terrigal started the game in excellent style and were never headed for the remainder of the match. Terrigal started so well that they had piled on 20 points within the first quarter of the match. Woy Woy were besieged in those opening minutes of the match and had no answer to the Terrigal onslaught. Terrigal continued the great form and were to continue on and cross for a total of 7 tries in the match. The final tally of 7 tries to Woy Woy’s 1 was a great indication of the flow of the match. Best players for Terrigal included fullback Alec Herridge, who crossed for 2 individual tries, lock Phil Heard, while players such as Ryan Metcalfe, Tom Lowe and Josh Vainikolo put in some outstanding performances. Woy Woy had no answer and were able to only respond with the single try. Best players for the visitors were centre Wade Hannell and forward Chris Paseka, neither stopped trying all day. Woy Woy did have several players out injured but on the day it was all Terrigal and this may not have even made a difference. Terrigal continue on the winning ways and remain undefeated so far this season. Terrigal are certainly in some great form and are one of the form teams in the competition this year. Woy Woy will regroup. They have been playing well.

Avoca Beach also maintained their undefeated record when they defeated Gosford by 23 points to 10 at Heazlett Park. This was a far tougher match than the one described above and there was not much between these two sides on the day. Both teams were able to kick an early penalty goal to make the opening score 3 points apiece before Gosford winger Chris Heap took an intercept and scored the opening try. The conversion of this try had taken Gosford to an early lead of 10 points to 3. This was the scoreline for quite awhile. Both teams had periods of attack but good defence from both sides kept scoring to a minimum. It was Avoca Beach who was able to cross for two tries to enable them to take the lead. Tries to the Avoca Beach centre pairing of Matt Anderson and Mitch Jacob saw the home side take the lead of 17 points to 10. At this stage both sides knew they could get the victory but it was the home side who were able to kick two penalty goals in the last quarter of the match to seal the victory. Best players for Avoca Beach were prop Emile Thomas and hooker Josh Meadham, while centres Matt Anderson and Blake Jacob were strong all day. Gosford played well but were unable to get that vital try in the second half. The scoreline of two tries to one demonstrated the closeness of the match. Best performers for Gosford were flanker Jackson Steinbeck, and backs Josh McGlynn and Josh Reid gave it their all.

Kariong recorded their second win in a row when they accounted for The Lakes by 44 points to 7 at Kariong Oval. The win was not a surprise but the size of the victory probably was. Kariong started well and were always in control. They were able to cross for a total of 7 tries, while The Lakes were only able to cross for the single touch down. Mitch Clay, on his return from injury, had a great game, and was able to cross for 2 tries from fullback. He was well supported by halfback Scott Hanley, centre Ryan Hughes and hooker Justin Walker. Kariong are in a patch of good form at present. The Lakes were hit with injuries on the day and did struggle. Their best performers were prop Glenn Stone and back Paul Wilson. The Lakes are still searching for their first win while Kariong, with the win, equal Gosford on the competition ladder.

Ourimbah returned to form after last week’s loss with a resounding win over Warnervale at Ourimbah Rugby Park by 55 points to 20. Ourimbah were always in control, and were able to cross for 9 tries during the 80 minutes. They started well and were never headed. Best players for Ourimbah were flanker Owen Turner, who scored 2 tries, while forward Sam Kearney also crossed for 3 tries. It was a very good effort by the home team. Warnervale gave it their best and were competitive early on. Warnervale had several good players but none were better than Cameron McNamara, Sione Ala, and No.8 Netane Tonga.

In the President’s Cup, The Entrance and Hornsby met at Mark Taylor Oval and The Entrance was able to cross for 3 tries in their 15 points to 0 victory over the home side.
