Bangor moved back to the top of the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League but only one point separates the top three.

The Seasiders leapfrogged morning leaders Newington at Clandeboye Park thanks to a Ben Arthurs 30th minute strike just moments after coming on for Jordan Hughes.

Armagh City failed to take advantage after surrendering the lead away to Moyola Park. The sides traded goals early on through Ciaran McKeever and Ryan Corrigan before the Eagles moved in front just after the break ... only for Michael Tolan to level for Moyola with 20 minutes remaining.

Limavady United are just slightly off the pace in the battle at the top, and picked up another three points with victory away to Lisburn Distillery. Alex Pomeroy opened the scoring from the spot after an hour before Jack Mullan added a second ten minutes later.

Dollingstown were top scorers with a 5-2 derby defeat of Banbridge Town at Planters Park. Christopher McMahon opened the scoring for Banbridge on ten minutes, Stephen Acheson levelled soon after but Stephen McCavitt restored the away advantage not long after that.

However Daniel Gordon hit two for the Dollybirds before the break, with Gary Liggett and Oisin Barr also finding the net in the second half.

Meanwhile, at the Dub, Portstewart hit three without reply past the PSNI. Joshua Busteed scored on 14 and 75 minutes either side of Joel Bradley's finish early in the second half.
