Mary Valley Stags defeat Caloundra Sharks in close game

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Mary Valley Stags defeated the Caloundra Sharks at Noosa on Saturday despite the wet weather.

It was a tight game between the two sides with the Stags coming out on top by a narrow margin of 14-12.

Publicity officer Jenny Carlson said the Stags' experience was evident but the weather played havoc for both teams with ball control the big issue of the day.

Luke Williamson, Andrew Gray and Dan Burnett crossed the line each securing their own tries and Troy Carlson kicking the only goal.

She said the player's player award went to Andrew Gray this week for his excellent ball control and intelligent play making.

This moves the Stags from 9th to 7th position on the ladder for the Sunshine Coast Gympie Rugby League division two competition.

There are no fixture games being played this Saturday and the Mary Valley Stags have a bye the following weekend.

The Stags have two weeks to rest up and come back in top form to play their neighbours the Gympie Devils at 2.30pm in Gympie on July 18.

The Mary Valley Stags are holding their annual Wags night on July 11 at the Kandanga Bowls Club.

The theme will be a Casino Night. Go to the Mary Valley Stags Facebook page for details.
