Lisburn Distillery 1-3 Crusaders

Crusaders secured their first Premiership victory after coming from behind to beat basement club Lisburn Distillery at New Grosvenor.

Crues pair David McMaster and Timmy Adamson hit the woodwork before Aaron Traynor nipped in to fire the Whites into the lead on 31 minutes.

McMaster levelled with a half-volley three minutes later and an Adamson header put the Crues ahead.

Paul Heatley's side-foot finish sealed the points for the Seaview men.

McMaster struck the a post after 16 minutes before Adamson headed against the bar.

Distillery striker Gary Liggett was also denied by the woodwork after rattling the bar early in the second half.

The Crues are ninth but just three points off the top while the Whites are the only side without a point.

"David McMaster was our star performer and he scored a good equaliser," said Crusaders boss Stephen Baxter.

"We had a strong breeze at our backs in the second half and we put together some excellent passages of play.

"It's great to get that first league win, as it will breed confidence among the players."
