SEASIDERS CLOSE GAP AT THE TOP
Bangor moved to within a point of leaders Armagh City with a three-goal defeat of the Eagles at Holm Park.
The Seasiders needed just five minutes to open the scoring when Jamie Glover was played through on goal to drill the finish past keeper Conner Byrne.
Bangor doubled their advantage early in the second half through Jack Upritchard after racing down the wing to meet a Karl Devine pass before cutting inside to fire into the top corner.
Armagh might have pulled one back soon after when Conor Mullen found the net but this was ruled out offside by the officials.
However, the visitors went on to kill the game off with a third goal - and Upritchard's second - when he outpaced the defence to finish in off an upright.
