The see-saw scenario for top spot rolls on as Institute and Knocbreda cancelled each other out at Drumahoe and a solitary goal secured all three points for Carrick Rangers at Dixon Park to see them return the summit.

Aaron Harmon’s strike was enough for The Gers to win the game and the ‘run in’ for the League Title promises to be enthralling.

Fourth placed Bangor’s 6-1 win at Clandeboye keeps them in touch with the top three, level on points with Knockbreda who sit third. Both have two games in hand and both are six points of the pace.

Bangor hit four goals in six second half minutes to beat Loughgall who up to the 81st minute were well in the game.

Ethan Boylan ’14 gave The Seasiders the lead and five minutes before the half Dean Youle made it two. Rooney ‘71 pulled one back for the visitors to give them hope, but ten minutes after came the Blitz.

Forsythe ’81, Hall ’82, Morrow ’83 and Melly ’87 left the final score 6-1 to leave Bangor in with a strong shout in a promotion race that any two of the top four can win.

The Welders beat Larne 3-0 at Inver Park to move them up into fifth level on points with Bangor but with three more games played their title hopes are all but gone. Cahoon. Armstrong and Middleton were on the score-sheet for the shipyard men.

Limavady United had a stay of execution due to a 1-0 home win over Dergview. Morrison’s strike on the stroke of half time was enough to give them he three points and bottom club Coagh United had a fantastic 3-1 win at Distillery. Two second half penalties and a goal secured Coagh’s second league win in a row.
