Championship player of the month Shane McGinty scored either side of the break to help Institute to a three-goal home defeat of Lisburn Distillery.

The home side were inches away from taken the lead on 10 minutes after Jamie McIntyre's right wing centre found McGinty, but his close range header was superbly saved at point blank range by Distillery's Gerard McErlean.

The Drumahoe outfit had claims for a penalty just before the half-hour mark when Michael McCrudden was fouled inside the penalty box, but referee Peter McGrath waved play on.

The deadlock was finally broken on 44 minutes when McIntyre's super right wing cross found McGinty at the back post and his perfectly guided header back across McErlean, found the net.

Institute doubled their lead on 48 minutes. Again McErlean did superbly well to keep out Brown and McIntyre's effort's, before making another point blank range stop to deny McGinty, but last month's Championship Player of the Month, made no mistake with his follow up, firing it into the net.

On 77 minutes Gareth Brown made no mistake latching onto to Sean Roddy's wonderful pass before clipping the ball over an out-rushing McErlean to seal the win.
