A defensive mix up in the third minute gifted Stephen Doyle who give Distillery the lead.

Annagh were level on 13 minutes when Chris McElroy showed great composure slotting home from 10 yards.

Efforts for the visitors came via the lively Neil Quinn and Matthew Rooney with Ciaran Fox saving well.

At the other end Gerard McErlean pushed Adam White's goal bound header over the bar on the half time whistle.

Annagh were reduced to ten men just before the hour when scorer McElroy was dismissed for serious foul play before, six minutes later, the hosts lost another man when Scott McCordick was booked for a second time.

Substitute Ethan Knipe grabbed the points for Distillery on 74 minutes when he poked home from six yards out.
