TEN-MAN DOLLYBIRDS HOLD ON TO CLIMB OFF THE BOTTOM

Dollingstown moved off the bottom of the table with an away win over Lisburn Distillery despite playing the last half-an-hour or so with ten men.

The visitors opened the scoring after seven minutes through Richard Thompson after he superbly lobbed Whites keeper Jonah Nicholl from wide on the left.

It was 2-0 after 19 minutes after new signing Ryan Lawless headed home from a corner.

Distillery got a goal back on 39 minutes thanks to Paul Young's header after connecting with a free-kick but, soon after, Ryan Gourley should have restored Dollingstown's two-goal lead after going one-on-one with Nicholl.

The Dollybirds did make it 3-1 early in the second half after an excellent team move which saw Glenn Hand cross for Andrew McMath to beat Nicholl.

However, the Whites pulled another goal back five minutes after that when James Wright converted from the spot following a foul by Matthew Walker.

Distillery were handed a further boost just before the hour when Dollingstown skipper Aaron Moffett was shown a straight red card for serious foul play.

But despite coming under pressure for the remainder of the game Dollingstown held on to secure just their second win of the campaign.
