IF Beechwood couldn't win on Saturday, they were never going to.
The Shamrocks celebrated their 100th anniversary with a 40-4 drubbing of Comboyne which kept their finals hopes alive.
Fullback Ruben Trick scored a double, while winger Matt Styles and second-rower Max Ward also crossed for two tries.
Ward also landed three goals for a personal points haul of 14.
Glen Strong and captain Jake Flanagan also crossed for the Shammies in the comfortable eight-tries-to-one victory.
Beechwood will remain fifth on the Hastings League points table with the rest of the competition to play their matches in hand in coming weeks.
Prop Blake Reis was a constant headache for the Comboyne defence while Tigers centre Beau Dorrington scored his side's lone try.
Earlier in the day, Beechwood started the day on the right note in the girls clash with Kendall.
They held on for a hard-fought 12-6 victory.
