St Patrick’s Lisburn all but secured their place in the semi-final of the Division 3 League when they beat one of their nearest rivals St Agnes in Wednesday night’s league game at Kirkwoods Park. A penalty save from goalkeeper Peter O’Neill helped them to a 0-7 to 0-3 lead at half time and they pushed on in the second half to stretch their advantage and win by six.
Che Smyth, Sionan O’Sullivan and Aaron Thompson had St Patrick’s 0-3 to 0-0 ahead after six minutes. The Aggies had a great chance to get back on terms in the eighth minute but St Patrick’s goalkeeper Peter O’Neill made a great save and his team took advantage by pushing on to lead by 0-7 to 0-3 at the interval, Thompson and Dixon getting two apiece while the Aggies scores came from Conor Gilligan (2) and Ronan Carroll.
David McGaharan pulled a point back early in second half for St Agnes and on three occasions they had the gap back to just three points. However three in a row from Conor Dixon (2) and Ben McMullan helped give the home team a bit of breathing space and they held on for the win.
