Premier Intermediate


27 Jan 2024

A closely fought day of Playr-Fit Premier Intermediate League action produced six tightly contested games but little movement amongst the sides battling it out at the top of the table.

Limavady United maintained their six point lead at the summit following a 1-1 draw away to Rathfriland Rangers.

Both goals came in quick succession with just over a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock after Lewis Tosh edged the Roesiders in front before, moments later, Jack Barbour levelled for the hosts.

Queen’s University, however, had to rely on a late goal to earn a point from Lisburn Distillery’s visit to The Dub.

Jonathan Angus handed the Whites the advantage midway through the first half when he finished off the rebound from a Dean Lewis effort … and it took the Students until nine minutes from time to craft an equaliser courtesy of Ben Mulgrew’s drive into the bottom corner.

Third placed Ballymacash Rangers went down by the odd goal in five away to Coagh United.

Zach Ferson opened the scoring for the home side on 24 minutes, but goals from Jordon Morrison and Benny Igiehon handed ‘Cash the half-time advantage.

But Coagh rallied after the break, with Luke Taylor levelling three minutes in ahead of Lee McMenemy’s winner with just over ten minutes to go.

At Mullaghacall Tony Tumelty found the net once in each half either side of a Harry Norton finish to secure a 2-1 win for Portstewart over Dollingstown while Andrew Martin and Reece Doyle registered for Banbridge Town as they defeated Moyola Park by the same scoreline.

Elsewhere, Tobermore United and Warrenpoint Town drew a blank at Fortwilliam Park.
