RORY McGilloway’s solitary strike was enough to give Three Flowers maximum points in Sunday’s Premier Division encounter against Lisahally in Strathfoyle as the Coshquin men stay in the title hunt.

And in the only other game to be played on Sunday Tristar easily defeated Trojans in St Columb’s Park to progress to the quarter-finals of the McAlinden Cup. Tristar will now meet Oxford United Stars for a place in the last four.
