Dunmurry YM 2 v Lisburn Distillery 4
27/07/17 Dunmurry Young Men FC 2 v Lisburn Distillery 4
Dunmurry Young Men hosted the Whites in a six goal thriller which promised to excite right from the first whistle with Dunmurry opening the scoring in the third minute following a cool finish from former Distillery player Darren Smyth.
However, Paul Young equalised for Distillery two minutes later when he latched onto a cross from McCaw before drilling the ball into the bottom corner of the net.
The Whites then had a chance to make it two one on the 10th minute when they were rewarded a penalty when McCaw was taken down in the box, however he could not convert and the chance went a begging.
This missed opportunity proved fatal as the home side picked the ball up in the middle of the park and cut the defence open with a through ball along the ground that sent Cahoon one on one with the keeper allowing him to place the ball in the bottom left corner of the net.
However, in the 40th minute the Whites won another penalty which this time was converted by Simpson to equalise the scores once again.
This goal seemed to drive the Whites further forward and they didn’t have to wait long for the third goal to come when on the 47th minute when Ferguson ran on to a through ball before placing the ball in the bottom corner of the net.
Substitute Paul Martin put the game to rest on the 62nd minute when he got the ball inside Dunmurry’s 18 yard area and coolly chipped it first time over the keeper making the score 2-4 to the Whites.
Chances came and went after that but in the end Distillery will have been happy with the win and the performance, next up it’s the Mourne cup on Saturday.
