Ely missed out on a promotion place after a narrow loss to Milton in the play-off finals.

Ely finished second in the division, missing out on automatic promotion, by a single point but were given a second chance in a play-off final against Milton.

Ely were on fire in the first quarter and with some precision shooting and excellent all round play, took at 13-6 lead.

Milton’s nerves settled in the second quarter and they pulled back Ely’s lead to a single goal at half-time. Ely started the second half the brighter but Milton ate away at their advantage and, in the last five minutes of the match, took the lead.
