The top of the table clash in the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League ended in stalemate but there were victories for Armagh City, Limavady United, Lisburn Distillery and Banbridge Town.

First met second at Clandeboye Park as Bangor entertained Queen’s University but neither side managed to gain the upper hand.

Scoreless at the break, Lewis Harrison edged the Seasiders in front on 53 minutes with a rifled finish from the edge of the box but the Students recovered to level with ten minutes remaining through Ronan Young at close range.

Ballymacash Rangers, in third spot, saw their trip to face Dollingstown postponed following a pitch inspection.

Alex Pomeroy bagged another brace as Limavady United defeated Moyola Park by the odd goal in three at the Showgrounds.

Pomeroy opened the scoring in the first minute, but Ian Parkhill levelled for the visitors soon after. However, Pomeroy struck again midway through the first half to secure the points for the Roesiders.

Lisburn Distillery hit five goals past the PSNI at The Dub.

The Whites moved in front early on when a defender turned the ball into his own net whilst attempting to deal with a Joshua Lynch free-kick, but the home side levelled when Louis Blackstock found the net later in the first half.

But two goals apiece from Lewis Higginson and Michael Gallagher after the break handed control firmly to Distillery, with Billy Casselss grabbing a consolation for the PSNI.

Banbridge Town defeated Tobermore United 2-1 at Fortwilliam Park. Daniel Barfoot opened the scoring for Tobermore on 18 minutes with Stephen McCavitt levelled early in the second half before, two minutes from the end, Sean Gallagher bagged the winner for the visitors.

Meanwhile, at Holm Park, a late Conor Mullen double saw Armagh City come back from a goal down to get the better of Portstewart, who had taken an early lead courtesy of Luke McConnell.
