The cup final result means the Bannsiders will finish in the top three and have therefore qualified for Europe.
The third European place will go to either Glentoran or Larne who are separated by a point ahead of their mid-week clash at Inver Park.
Friday's final got the go ahead after the Irish FA dismissed a protest from Crusaders against their semi-final defeat to Tiernan Lynch's team.
