Lisburn Distillery kept their recent momentum going with this defeat of Bangor at New Grosvenor Stadium.

The Whites moved in front on 22 minutes when Andrew Simpson fired beyond Gerard Walker from the edge of the area after his initial turn and shot was charged down.

Nick Beta made it 2-0 six minutes into the second half. The Bangor 'keeper failed to grasp a corner sent over from the right which Reece Croft nodded back into the six yard box for Beta to head home.

The Seasiders pulled a goal back with 20 minutes remaining. Andrew Long brought the ball forward into the Whites half, before teaming up with Dwaine Beattie and finishing with an unstoppable effort into the roof of the net.

Bangor finished the game with ten minutes following Jordan Lucas' sending off for a second bookable offence.
