FIRST HALF DOUBLE KEEPS BANGOR IN SECOND
Two goals early in the first half saw Bangor defeat Banbridge Town at Crystal Park.
The win keeps the Seasiders in second spot and in contention for a play-off place going into the final game of the season.
Michael Halliday opened the scoring for the visitors on 18 minutes from close range after Jamie Glover had knocked on a Jack Upritchard cross.
Then, four minutes after that, David Hume doubled Bangor's lead at the back post after the home defence failed to clear a free-kick.
Bangor go head-to-head with third placed Armagh City for the opportunity to face Knockbreda in the play-off when the pair meet at Clandeboye Park at noon on Saturday.
