The Bellas’ lone marker was tallied by Théka Oetelaar.
The other April 25 contest was a much closer affair, as McDonald Electric edged Giant Tiger 1-0, on a goal from Laine MacDonell, assisted by Barb Benton and Jenay Morin.
The league’s other two teams, Molson and Howes Farm Equipment, had the night off.
