THE Mary Valley Stags have earned themselves this week's break after smashing Palmwoods Devils 48-0 last Saturday.

Stags spokeswoman Jenny Carlson said despite the 48-0 score at the end of the game, both teams remained scoreless for the first 25 minutes of the clash.

The scores started to add upwith the Stags crossing the line eight times in the remainder of the game.

Carlson said the quality of football on the day was high.

"Despite the score it was not a walkover game, full credit to Palmwoods for an excellent game," Carlson said.

Wade Johnston was voted the Players' Player award.

Carlson said it was a great feat, considering this was Johnston's first season with the Stags.

"He really takes the game on board," Carlson said.

Brad Carlson scored through two trys and Stewart Walters, Chad Parker, Josh Ryan, Wade Johnston and Luke Williamson all crossed the try-line once. Jason Woods converted every try.

The Stags still hold third position on the ladder.

The team rests this week but up to seven players will play as Sunshine Coast representatives versus Northern Districts in Beerwah on Saturday.
