Two first half goals were enough to secure all three points for Lisburn Distillery from this visit to face Dollingstown at Planters Park.

The Whites moved in front after 25 minutes when a cross from the left bypassed the home defence for Josh Doyle to cut in and fire home at the far post.

Then, three minutes from the break, Stuart Moore made it 2-0 after being afforded a free header to direct the ball past Stephen Croft.

Dollingstown pulled one back on 53 minutes when Gary Liggett intercepted a poor back pass and rounded keeper Jonah Nicholl to calmly score.

Keith Johnston was then very unlucky when his cheeky back heel beat Nicholl only to be cleared off the line. Dollingstown pressed for the equaliser as the second half progressed but the visiting defence held firm to secure the points.
