East Belfast 2 Lisburn Distillery 0
01/08/17 East Belfast FC 2 v Lisburn Distillery 0
East Belfast FC proved to be strong opponents against a weakened Lisburn Distillery side who didn’t have either of their first choice goalkeepers to call on due to injury.
A weakened Distillery side were able to keep the score at nil-nil throughout the first half and indeed showed some promising spells of football creating chances sadly all of which went begging.
It took East Belfast till the 75th minute to break the deadlock through goal scorer James Belshaw when the Whites were caught off guard by a short corner which was then crossed in to the box and fell kindly to Belshaw who duly rifled it into the back of the net.
We didn’t have to wait long for the next East Belfast goal which came three minutes later when another cross was put into the Distillery box, this time falling to the head of ex Whites player Taylor Evans who headed the ball up and over the Distillery keeper to put the game to rest.
Another frustrating result then for the Whites, but a good chance to get the fitness levels up and prepare for the next one.
