Stags roll leagues big guns

THE Mary Valley Stags have beaten the top team in the competition, the Kilcoy Yowies, to the tune of 28-0 after an intense game at Kilcoy on Saturday.

Right from the first touch of the ball, the Stags were confident and well-organised in their game.

They were right up in the opposition's faces in defence and didn't allow them any room to move and went to half-time with a score of 20-0.

This was a great lead-in going into the second half and, with confidence high, the boys came out firing for the second half.

So did the Yowies, but to no avail, only making a couple of minor breaks which were shut down quickly.

Troy Carlson made a try-saving tackle as the last line of defence playing fullback, and managed to help keep the Yowies scoreless.

This effort earned him the Players' Player of the match.

This result has left the finals' berth wide open for any of the top five teams in the Sunshine Coast/Gympie Rugby League Red Rooster C Grade Competition.

Tries went to Brett Warren, Lance Fenton, Brendan Hunter and Caine Svenson (2), and Kaden Dickfos converted four goals.

Next Saturday's game will be against Caboolture, and will be played at Beachmere at 1.30pm.

There will be a bus going to this game and the community is encouraged to head along and support the team, so the club is not out of pocket in supplying the bus.

Bus times would be Amamoor 10am, Kandanga 10.15am, Imbil 10.30am and Kenilworth 11am.
