Lisburn Distillery 2 Harryville Homers 1
22/07/17 Pre-season friendly Lisburn Distillery 2 v Harryville Homers FC 1
Lisburn Distillery hosted Harryville Homers FC in a pre-season friendly that promised to excite right from the first whistle as Nick Beta put the Whites in front two minutes into the game. Centre back, Andrew Simpson had started the move that led to the goal by playing a perfectly weighted through ball to winger Timmy Clarke who managed to find the feet of Beta who passed it into the net from six yards out to give the Whites an early lead however, this lead was short lived as on the 5th minute Harryville equalled the scores through Gary Baird who managed to find the net in the midst of a goal line scrap in which the Whites failed to get the ball cleared.
This was one of the many misfortunes to fall on Distillery during the course of the game as they could not find the net despite hitting the post twice as well as hitting the crossbar. Nonetheless the team showed great determination to pull through and got what proved to be the winning goal late in the first half through Beta who got his second goal of the match, his fifth in four pre-season games, after combining once again with Clarke who delivered a cross into the box for Beta to powerfully head past the Harryville keeper.
Next up for Lisburn Distillery is another pre-season friendly against this time away to Dunmurry Ym on Thursday July 27th, kick off 7:15 Pm
