Limavady United claim resounding win over Lisburn Distillery

Thursday, 2 March 2017

Lisburn Distillery............0 Limavady United............5

LIMAVADY United's defence of their title took them to New Grosvenor on Saturday, a ground at which they have had an appalling record down the years.
After 90 enthralling minutes, they had not only recorded their best ever victory against the Whites but had also hit the top of the table and dealt a promotion rival a potentially fatal blow for the second consecutive week.
Going into the game, United's back four had a distinctly makeshift look and they were missing influential Gary McFadden through injury.
But from the start, they seemed able to carve openings in the home side at will, with the tormentor in chief being Joe McCready. An undeniable talent but often a frustrating player who can be guilty of overplaying, on Saturday he was simply unplayable, scoring four goals in less than twenty minutes either side of half time.
On three minutes, in a sign of things to come, McCready combined with Owens to set up Harkin in the box but he miss-kicked with time to pick his spot. Then in the tenth minute, he burst through but dallied too long to get his shot away.
