Bangor made sure of the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League title with victory over Queen’s University at The Dub.

Adam Neale nodded the Seasiders in front midway through the first half, with Ben Arthurs seeing his 30-yard effort take a deflection past the home keeper ten minutes after that to double the lead.

Ryan Arthur added a third with nine minutes remaining before Dan Mairs hit a consolation for Queen’s in stoppage time.

The Students are still in contention for a play-off spot but their hopes were dealt a blow after a Jack Smith 92nd minute finish saw Ballymacash Rangers – who currently occupy second place – secure a narrow win away to Moyola Park.

PSNI were confirmed in bottom place after only managing to secure a point away to Banbridge Town.

Ryan Woods had handed the Police the lead at the break but Michael McCavitt levelled for Banbridge to secure their own place for next season.

Armagh City are also safe after hitting two goals without reply past Dollingstown at Holm Park. Conor Mullen opened the scoring early in the game, with Marc McConnell knocking home the second after the break.

Portstewart and Lisburn Distillery played out a 1-1 draw at Mullaghacall. Glenn Law fired the Seahawks in front after half-an-hour, but Michael Gallagher levelled for the Whites early in the second half.

Meanwhile, at The Showgrounds, Daniel McIlhatton grabbed the only goal of the game as Tobermore United edged past Limavady United.
