Mary Valley Stags lose to Beerwah
MARY Valley Stags fought gallantly at the weekend's game against Beerwah, going down 24-22 at Coolum..
The scoreline was always close during the match before Beerwah pulled away in the final minutes.
The Stags have had a tough couple of weeks, narrowly losing to the Pomona-Cooran Cutters in last weekend's fixture by only eight points.
The club's Jenny Carlson said it was a very close game and the Stags did well to keep up.
"Beerwah were an A-grade club last year so it goes to show the incredible performance they had," she said.
"The Stags had a problem closing the Bulldogs down out wide where they scored a couple of run-away tries from a gap in our defence."
Tries went to Troy Carlson, Brett Warren, Joshua, Ryan and James Hogan, with player's player going to Carlson.
Jenny said the next game for the Stags would be played at home at Kandanga's Jack Spicer Oval, which was in great condition.
"The field is in pristine condition after the Gympie Regional Council gave it a makeover last year," she said.
The first game will be Coolum and Yandina kicking off at 1.30pm followed by the main game at 3pm with the Stags facing off against Kawana.
Kawana has had mixed results so far this year so the Stags will have to be on their toes and be on top of their game.
Jenny said the club was looking forward to a great day of football and anticipating a good crowd to kick-off the first of its home games this year.
She said anybody was welcome to come along for the great day and support their local team.
