A TEAM from Middlewich has celebrated their first victory of a challenging debut season in the Everybody League’s top-flight.

Cheshire Stars S have found the going tough in the Premier Division after being promoted and that makes a 30-27 success against AIM one to savour.

They had lost on their previous 21 attempts to break their duck.

In the same section, Stars T went down 42-22 against high-flying Ladyhawks G.

Stars A prevailed after a frantic fixture against Indigo in the Championship Division.

Their opponents pushed them the distance, particularly during a third quarter when they turned over possession repeatedly.

However player-of-the-match Catherine Barton’s accurate shooting ensured a 38-31 victory.

Stars R welcomed back Diane Gentle for a Division One encounter with Sandstormers.

She was chosen afterwards as their best performer during a 30-19 reverse despite playing with a dislocated finger.
