DISTILLERY FIGHT BACK TO EARN POINT

Lisburn Distillery came from two goals down to earn a point from Portstewart's visit to New Grosvenor.

The visitors moved in front as early as the seventh minute through Ryan Doherty who headed past Jonah Nicholl after a corner wasn't cleared.

Portstewart doubled their lead midway through the first half after a mistake by Barry Moore allowed Zach Barr to fire home from just inside the area.

The Whites pulled a goal back four minutes from the break courtesy of an Aaron Harris close range header before, in first half stoppage time, Kevin Braniff levelled from the spot following a foul on Paul Young just inside the area.

There were no further goals in the second half, although Nick Beta did come closest for Distillery when he turned the ball against an upright with just under a quarter-of-an-hour remaining.
