After a strong game to a Sunshine Coast home crowd, our Sunshine Coast Falcons are heading into the final four teams for state league finals.

Going head-to-head against Souths Logan Magpies yesterday, the Falcons held strong, dominating the first half 22-0. 

Midway through the second half saw the Magpies fight back with three tries scored in less than ten minutes, punters were on the edge of their seats as both teams knuckled down against the ticking clock with just eight minutes remaining.

Pulling through with a breakthrough try bringing the Falcons to a win of 26-18, the roars from the crowd were deafening with home town pride.

Sunshine Coast Falcons captain Dane Hogan said, "We were really good for 65 minutes but we leaked a few points in the back end of the game and it was a bit scary there."

"You give any team in finals footy that much ball and field position they are going to hurt you.

"They were coming home strong but we held on so it was a good effort."

Heading to Suzuki Stadium at Langlands Park this week to take on Easts Tigers, it's bound to be a close match with the Tigers winning the last match by one point in round 17.

The FOGS Colts division we're unable to get the result they wanted, with a disappointing loss to Easts Tigers at 25-10 knocking them out of the competition.

The Melbourne Storm U20s division also saw it's last ever game in the National Youth Competition, with a close loss against Canberra Raiders at 24-22.

We wish the Sunshine Coast Falcons all the best as they head into the second week of finals #ourteamourtown
