Bangor beat Larne in Steel & Sons Cup final

Bangor clinched the Steel and Sons Cup as they edged out Larne 2-1 in the decider at Seaview on Christmas Eve.

The Seasiders took the lead on 26 minutes as Gareth McLaughlin's cross was deflected into his own net by Larne's Niall McAllister.

Garth Scates extended Bangor's lead before half-time as he netted after exchanging passes with Glen Bowers.

Marc Brown pulled a goal back on 73 from a penalty but Bangor held on.

Larne's penalty came after Gareth Beattie had fouled Allen Reid.
