St Ursula's got their campaign off to a shakey start as the first time entrants St Joseph's College were looking to cause a Round 1 upset. Joey's led for most of the first half until St Ursula's hit back with a quick goal just before the half time siren and the powerhouse school led by a slender 1 point at the first break.
A first up goal to St Joseph's in the second half woke the St Ursula's girls up and they hit back with three very quick goals to secure a 15point victory first up.
