Lisburn Distillery 3 Dundela 1

Lisburn Distillery bounced back to winning ways in the first round of the Paddy Power County Antrim Shield.

Whites boss Jimmy Brown made four changes following Saturday’s heavy defeat by Glentoran and his side made all the first-half running.

Neal Gawley hit a post on 12 minutes before Rory Hamill floated in a deep cross four minutes later. Glenn Ferguson headed back across goal and Gavin Melaugh fired home.

A defensive error saw the Whites add their second on 25 minutes — Ryan Hylands and keeper Paul Hughes hesitated and Chris Kingsberry took advantage from 18 yards.

Dundela were given some hope after the break when Peter McCann headed Hylands’ free-kick into his own net ten minutes into the second-half.

The visitors became more competitive and the Whites endured some nervous moments at the back before McCann bagged the final goal ten minutes from time.
