Lisburn Distillery hit five past Annagh United to stretch their current unbeaten run to six games.
Two goals midway through the first half set the Whites on course to claim the points.
Alan McMurtry opened the scoring on 35 minutes with the first of his two penalties of the night - awarded for a foul on Paul Young - before, three minutes after that, Matthew Ferguson made it 2-0 following great play by Mikey Withers.
It got worse for Annagh just before the break when Gareth Rees was dismissed by referee Mark Dillon for violent conduct following a challenge on Jonathan McCaw.
Annagh did pull one back just after the hour through Craig Taylor but the Whites restored their two-goal advantage when McCaw unleashed a superbly struck low finish past 'keeper Andrew Wright.
Then, after Nick Beta had been upended on 70 minutes, McMurtry knocked home his second spot-kick with further chances following through Ferguson and substitute Connor Corry ... before Ferguson did eventually double his tally with six minutes remaining.
