Storm flogged by Roosters

The Woy Woy Roosters rugby league team consigned Gosford Kariong to their ninth successive Open Grade loss of their season; inflicting a hefty 48-8 defeat upon the battling Narara based club in front of a good humoured gathering at the carrington St Oval on Saturday, May 24.

A tearaway try to Storm prop Israel Coggan on the left edge, buoyed the home team’s spirits in the minutes leading up to half time. However beyond the break, Gosford conceded a series of penalties for over vigorous play and the Roosters rolled relentlessly forward to notch their fourth victory of the year. In more positive news for the Storm, the club’s U16 and U13 teams sit on top of their respective competition ladders after the opening six rounds.
