Matthew Ferguson grabbed the only goal of the game as Lisburn Distillery defeated Dundela in this top of the table clash at Ballyskeagh.

Paul Young created the opening when he ran onto a through ball on the left before crossing for Ferguson to turn a defender and slot into the bottom corner past 'keeper Ryan McBride.

Dundela might have levelled before the break when Alan McMurtry upended Jordan Hughes on the edge of the area to concede spot-kick but Hughes was unable to beat Jonah Nicholl after the 'keeper got down well to turn the ball onto an upright.

Jonathan McCaw came within a whisker of adding a second just after the hour only to see his goalbound effort cleared off the line.
