Goals from Aaron Mullan and Luke McDowell helped Portstewart to victory over Sport & Leisure Swifts at Mullaghacall.
In their final home game of the season, the Seahawks seized the advantage after just four minutes through Mullan before, on 25 minutes, McDowell doubled their lead.
However, the Swifts hit back with two goals in quick succession. Ryan McAuley reduced the deficit on the half-hour mark to be followed just four minutes later by Kevin Lynch's 13th goal of the campaign.
But, in similar fashion, Portstewart went on to seal the points with back-to-back goals midway through the second half.
McDowell restored their advantage on 65 minutes to double his tally for the evening, with Mullan following suit just a couple of minutes after that to complete the scoring.
