Lurgan Town Under 13 Colts took on Lisburn Distillery at Wallace Park on Saturday 25th November 2017 in the Lisburn league. Lisburn took the lead early on but Lurgan equalised when Adam Banks ran onto a ball through the middle and finished well to the keepers left. Lisburn made it 2-1 with a lofted shot but Lurgan scored almost straight away when Joey McDonald played a lovely through ball through to Caolan Ritchie who used his pace to get to the ball before the keeper and score an important goal.
Lurgan continued a very good fight back to take a 3-2 lead just before half time when Adam Banks scored from close range. Caolan Ritchie used his great pace again and scored a terrific goal when he raced onto a ball through the middle and shot over the keeper. Adam Banks grabbed his hat trick when Lurgan were awarded a penalty and Adam beat the keeper to make it 5-2. It was a very strong, battling performance by Lurgan and it was a great win.
