The Strollers suffered their first defeat of 2017 on a very windy day at Beltoy.
 
Wakehurst started off the better team and were controlling the game for large parts of the first half but couldn't capitalise and were caught on a counter attack where David Johnston was adjudged to give away a very dubious penalty which Star converted to go one up.  
 
The hosts scored a couple more before the break which left the Strollers going in at half time wondering how they were 3-0 down. 
 
Half Time: Strollers 0-3 Castle Star
 
Tom Campbell pulled one back early in the second half when a long throw in by Matthew Logan caused confusion in the Castle box and Campbell popped up to hammer the ball home from six yards out.
 
Strollers were piling on the pressure but once again, they couldn't take any of their chances and the home side grabbed a fourth late on to end any hopes of the Strollers getting anything from the game.
