This was a big win for Bangor who are certainly going to all-out in their quest to win the league Title though they know it will not be made easy for them by their opponents. Both teams played it very tight in the first-half and at half-time it was a goal scored by Jordan Lucas on the 35th minute that gave Bangor the edge. The second half again saw little to choose between the teams with Glebe pushing for the equaliser and Bangor hitting back with quick breaks. Bangor then doubled their advantage on the 80th minute through a penalty converted by Ethan Boylan. After this Glebe had to throw caution aside going on all-out attack but got caught when Ethan Boylan nipped in to score his second goal in the game on the 85th minute securing the points for Bangor.
