Fearon brace can’t prevent U15s defeat

Banbridge Town U15s 2

Lisburn Distillery U15s 3

Town Under 15s suffered a second agonising defeat of the season to Lisburn Distillery on Saturday after a late, late comeback by the visitors.

Having been beaten 4-3 by Distillery earlier in the season, Town Juniors got the breakthrough their early efforts deserved after 20 minutes as Gavin Fearon thumped in a header from Jamie McCandless’ corner. Fearon got his second on 55 minutes. He latched onto Cormac Downey’s ball down the line, cut in onto his right foot and curled a great effort into the opposite corner. However, a nightmare final 10 minutes saw Distillery net three times to snatch the win with just one minute left on the clock.
