McDONALDS SUNSHINE COAST PREMIER LEAGUE
The league opened on Saturday night with some interesting and lopsided results.

After taking a 5-1 lead into the break, Maroochydore went on with the job, scoring double figures in a 10-2 win.
2014 Premiers, Kawana took on the club that finished last in Beerwah Glasshouse. The mismatch showed in the final result, Kawana taking away a 14-1 victory.
Buderim made the short trip to Nambour Yandina and it was a happy night for the visitors, the Wanderers scoring a half dozen to Nambour Yandina’s lone goal, 6-1.
Noosa Lions who are looking to improve on last year’s fourth placing started on a positive note, 4-1 winners at home against Coolum.
While Gympie Diggers made their return to the Sunshine Coast after a five year absence. After a heavy 9-1 loss in midweek FFA Cup action to Caboolture, the prospect of travelling to last year’s Grand Final winners, Woombye seemed like another uphill battle. While Diggers went down, it was a gallant effort, defeated by a solitary goal 2-1.
Caboolture had the bye.
