Star bounced back and Roman Soltys was set up by Steele for the equaliser on the hour mark and Scott Milligan hit the winner 14 minutes from time.
ST CUTHBERT WANDERERS opened their account with a 2-0 win over Abbey Vale with Adam Johnstone shooting home in 15 minutes and Jack Nixon bundling in a corner in the 60th minute.
Champions THREAVE ROVERS scored two late goals for a 3-3 draw against Mid Annandale who went ahead in 30 minutes through a Nathan Muir goal. But Andrew Donnelly levelled in 38 minutes.
