PALMWOODS would have been left wondering what hit them on Saturday after failing to get one point on the scoreboard in their game against the Mary Valley Stags at Yandina.
Mary Valley Stags treasurer Jenny Carlson said the Valley team "came home with the bacon" winning 78-0.
"But in saying that Palmwoods showed great determination while only fielding a team of 12 players, so congratulations to the Palmwoods team for not giving up and showing up for the game," Mrs Carlson said.
The players' player went to Mitchell Pascoe "for a strong game and being awarded one try".
"Mitch is one of our new players and has the making to be a stand-out player of the future."
Points went to Anthony Smerdon 2, Lance Fenton 3, Brett Warren 1, Troy Carlson 2, Mitchell Pascoe 1, Jerry McCallum 1, Aaron Parker 3, Marty Hollis 1 and goals to Chad Parker 8 and Jason Woods 3.
Valleys, with only two losses this season in the Red Rooster C-grade Cup, are holding steady in third place on the points ladder; Coolum and Kilcoy are on top with six wins.
This win brings the Stags closer to the leaders.
"This weekend is another home game for the Stags at 3pm against Beachmere.
"We think Beachmere is always a team not to be taken for granted as we have had many close games with them so we are expecting an exciting match this weekend."
Mrs Carlson said she hoped the clear weather remained "excellent" to draw a big crowd.
The first game on Saturday at Kenilworth is Palmwoods v Yandina at 1.30pm.
