BRANIFF DOUBLES UP FOR THE WHITES

Kevin Braniff grabbed both goals in Lisburn Distillery's victory over Limavady United at New Grosvenor Stadium.

The former Northern Ireland international opened the scoring for the Whites after half-an-hour with a curling free-kick from some 25 yards past visiting keeper Conor Brown.

Then, four minutes into the second half, he made it 2-0 after Michael O'Hanlon found him with a great through ball to bring his tally for the season to five.

The Roesiders pulled a goal back with just over a quarter-of-an-hour left but Daibhibd McIvor's finish failed to spark a late revival for Mark Clyde's side.
