style="line-height: 1.3em;">

AN INJURY time leveller from David Wright earned Lisburn Distillery a 2-2 draw in an exciting Belfast Telegraph Championship opener against Institute.

The visitors took the lead on 42 minutes with a goal from Darren McCauley despite strong protests from the home team that the strike was offside.

It was a tough decision for the referee, given that one of his assistants failed to attend the game.

When Hume made it 2-0 to the visitors early in the second half the Whites seemed destined to start their time in the Championship with a defeat.

However their fighting spirit took over as they continued to work hard, eventually getting their rewards when debutant Southam capitalised on an error to reduce the deficit and then eventually Wright getting that late goal to secure a point.
