Last Weekend Saturday night football returned to Hamlyn Terrace over the weekend as Woongarrah welcomed the table-topping Southern and Ettalong United side on what was a cold Saturday night on the northern end of the Central Coast. After taking control of top spot last weekend, Southern was looking to strengthen their grip on the position, and they started the match in a similar fashion.
The Lion’s put the Woongarrah side under plenty of early pressure, with their snappy passing fashioning a number of chances throughout the first half, however, the opening goal continued to elude them. The second period saw Southern again dominate the ball as they continually looked the more likely to open the scoring, however, significant credit must be payed to the Woongarrah side who defended excellently throughout to thwart a number of goal scoring opportunities.
Goalkeeper Rochelle Davis was particularly impressive as she often singlehandedly kept her side in the match at stages throughout the second half. The ‘Cats managed to hang on for what was a valuable point for the side, as they try to stay in touch with the sides above them.
