THE OTHER STUFF

The Stars have only ever played against one team beginning with the letter ‘K’ and the Kilmarnock Avalanche were competing against Dundee during the 2006-207 Scottish National League season.

The Stars would finish second that year, winning 31 points after winning 15 of their 18 league games but drawing once. A playoff semi-final defeat ended their campaign but the Avalanche would not make the post-season after finishing in eighth with 10 points.

After that season, the Ayrshire club reverted to their original name of Kilmarnock Storm.
