LISBURN THIRDS 17 BANN FIFTHS 7
Bann Fifths got off to a promising start in this Regional League game, with strong carries from captain Neil Walker and Josh Edwards. But Lisburn opened the scoring with their left winger running down the line to put them 7-0 up.
They added a second following several handling errors from the Bann back line. The visitors eventually struck back with Colin Hamilton diving over from a scrum near the Lisburn line and Jordan Mullan converting.
Bann were unlucky not to get another score before the interval but Paul Cairns spilled the ball in very poor conditions only yards from the line.
The second half was much better, Bann taking control for most of the half against a strong wind. But a resilient home defence denied them the second score that should have been theirs on the balance of play, and a late third try sealed the win for Lisburn.
