Pegasus retained their Premier League crown by coming from behind to beat rivals Ards 5-3 in Tuesday night's title decider at Ards Leisure Centre.

Amy Benson put Ards ahead, but Ruth Maguire equalised for the holders.

Sara Alexander and Becky Weir were then on target for Ards but Vanessa Surgenor pulled one back before half-time.

Irish international Surgenor levelled, Robyn Chambers nudged Pegasus ahead and then Surgenor completed her hat-trick late on to secure victory for her side.

Ards had beaten Pegasus 3-1 in the Ulster Ladies Shield final on Boxing Day.
