Our Junior footballers also had a first round victory accounting for Starlights -13 to -11 in Bellefield.
Shels had the wind in the first half and set about steadily amassing a good lead. They went to the break -12 to 0-5 ahead. It was Starlights all the way in the second half with only a single point scored by Shels but they had done enough to hold on for the win.
