Nedas Maciulaitis bagged a hat-trick as leaders Annagh United stormed past Lisburn Distillery at Ballyskeagh.

The Lithuanian, back at on loan from Coleraine, opening the scoring after half-an-hour with a rifled finish into the roof of the net from six yards.

Craig Taylor made it 2-0 a couple of minutes later before, soon after at the other end, Daire Rooney pulled one back for the Whites.

However, Maciulaitis restored Annagh's two-goal lead ten minutes into the second half before, 11 minutes later, he picked up a Scott McCordick ball to claim his hat-trick.

And McCordick got on the scoresheet himself six minutes from time to round things off following some good play from Ruairi McDonald and David Scullion.
