THE OTHER STUFF

In the Stars’ 19 years of existence, they have only ever faced three teams whose name begins with ‘D’ and they are; DUNDALK BULLS, DUNDEE COMETS and DUNDEE TIGERS.

The four clubs have only met when during the team’s tenure in the SNL and they met the Bulls from Ireland when they played in the Celtic Cup in the 2008/2009 season.

The Bulls were joined by another team from Dundalk, Latvian Hawks and they played against; the Stars, Fife Flyers, Paisley Pirates and Solway Sharks.

After 20 games, Fife topped the group with 34 points and the Stars came second with 33 but only two more teams would qualify for the knockout stage and they were the Bulls and the Hawks.

 

 

In the Semi-Finals, Dundee beat Dundalk 6-2 and faced Fife in the Final but the Flyers would claim the trophy by winning 3-2 after penalties.

However, the Tigers featured against the Stars more frequently as they had two league campaigns of competing for the SNL League title in 2005/2006 and 2006/2007. Although, the Tigers failed to finish above the Stars in both seasons

Finally, the Stars met the Comets twice in the Group Stage of the Autumn Cup of 2009/2010 and the Stars went undefeated during the group stage, with two wins over the Comets and Fife Flyers each.
