Justin Olam was the standout player for the Falcons, despite them going down to Souths Logan Magpies 22-12 on Saturday.
The Storm recruit from Papua New Guinea ran for 214 metres in an eye-catching performance.
Jake Turpin also scored the only two tries of the game for the Falcons, both in the space of six minutes during the second half.
That gave the home side a glimmer of hope before a try to the Magpies with two minutes remaining sealed their fate.
“Justin Olam was really, really good,” Falcons coach Craig Ingebrigtsen said.
“He was our most dangerous player so it was great from a feeder perspective to have that.
“He was very powerful with his carries. It is exciting because the crowd up here really like him. Just to watch him play was really good.
“Jake Turpin is also coming into his own at hooker so we are looking for a really good season out of him as well.”
Sunshine Coast are still searching for their first win of the season after drawing with fellow feeder Club Easts Tigers in the first week of the season.
They will head on the road this Saturday when the travel to take on Northern Pride.
