Saturday, 01 September 2012
Star's winning start came to grief as the Cooks won at Chestnut Avenue for a second successive season.
Things started well enough for the home side who took a tenth minute lead when Wayne Morris glanced in Callum Reed's flag kick.
Eleven minutes later Morris turned villain conceding a penalty which Ben Foster converted.
Star struck the post through Nick Davey but found themselves trailing to a Josh Urquhart goal after 29 minutes.
Debutant Reed pounced to level after 61 minutes after Davey's effort was parried.
Three minutes later Star were back in the lead with Danny Escorsio netting at the back post.
Back came Cogenhoe with a 70th minute effort from Darren Frost who converted a Dustin Fitzgerald pass for his fifth of the season.
Cogenhoe won it ten minutes from time with Leslie heading in off a post.
