The Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League made a return with Bangor, Banbridge Town, Limavady United and Dollingstown all collecting three points while it ended all square at Solitude between the Swans and the Eagles.

Bangor maintained their 100% start to the campaign and opened up a slender gap at the top thanks to a 5-0 defeat of Moyola Park at Clandeboye Park.

Gareth Beattie struck twice to give the Seasiders a commanding lead with just over half-an-hour on the clock before veteran striker Michael Halliday added a third a couple of minutes from the break. Substitutes Kyle Woods and Louis Blackstock then found the net in the latter stages of the second half to complete the scoring.

Armagh City and Newington occupy second and third spots respectively after sharing the goals at Solitude. Richard Gowdy opened the scoring for Newington, Jordan King levelled for City, Gary Warwick then restored home advantage with Ross Lavery bagging Armagh's second equaliser later in the game.

At Crystal Park goals from Reece Doyle and Andrew Martin helped Banbridge Town defeat bottom of the table Lisburn Distillery 2-0 while, at Planters Park, Keith Johnston and Patrick Mooney found the net as Dollingstown got past PSNI by the same scoreline.

There was also a two-goal victory for Limavady United over Portstewart in the derby at the Showgrounds. Gareth McFadden edged the Roesiders in front just before half-time before Alex Pomeroy made sure from the spot with eight minutes remaining.
