Stags solid to win

THE Mary Valley Stags have come out on top in another game with a close contender last Saturday.

Stags treasurer Jenny Carlson said the Stags beat Caboolture 38-12 after going into half time with a decisive lead.

"The boys were solid in defence and quick in attack," she said.

"The new boys on the block, Travis Backhouse, Jarrod Malcomson and Caine Svenson, played a very strong game."

Try scorers were Troy Carlson 3, Brad Carlson 1, Kaden Dickfos 1, Jarrod Malcomson 2, with five goal conversions to Kaden Dickfos.

The Players' Player this week went to Jarrod Malcomson.

"We still remain in third position on the Sunshine Coast/Gympie Rugby League Red Rooster C Grade Competition with a lead over Caboolture of three points, which cements our position quite solidly," Carlson said.

Tomorrow's game will see the boys take on Kawana in Coolum at 1.30pm.

While there is no bus to the game this week, Carlson has invited Stags supporters to get behind the boys in the lead up to the finals.

"Only three games left before the finals start on August 18," she said.
