This was a very entertaining game between two equally balanced teams. Starlights settled quickly, scored a goal and put the Shels backs under a lot of pressure. However Shels responded with two great goals from Liam Donnelly. Starlights scored a further 1-4 but a goal by Cian Lambe and a fourth from Brian Kirwan put Shels ahead by two points at half time.

The second half was equally as entertaining with Liam Donnelly and Brian Kirwan scoring a further 1-1 apiece (1-0 from penalty by Kirwan). With 7 minutes remaining it looked like Shels would win the game but Starlights were not finished and scored 2-1 to get their third win in the Championship. Final score Starlights 5-10, Shels 6-2
