Highlights from the match are available below.
"This was a great road win," said Woodbridge head coach, Peter Pinizzotto. "The team played a very disciplined road game, and to win on the road is never easy. The team stuck to the game plan by playing great defence first, we were very patient as a team, and tried to take advantage of their mistakes."
"Many injuries and lack of in-form players led to us falling down early on in the match and we just could not recover after," said Kingston head coach, Christian Hoefler.
"Once they scored their third goal, it was a very difficult challenge to attempt to overcome. A few personnel changes added some better attacking dynamics to our side; however we just could not score past their organized back line."
Pinizzotto paid tribute to the work of Kingston forward, Ryan McCurdy, while Hoefler selected Woodbridge's Christian Cavallini for special mention.
"I thought one the most dangerous player on Kingston was Ryan McCurdy but our defence did a great job on closing him down quickly," said Pinizzotto, while Hoefler said [Cavallini] was always in the right place at the right time - very intelligent player."
