How to intersect 2 points with outlying polygon

Hello, I am looking for ideas to speed up my workflow for intersecting points with polygons along line. I currently run intersect tool to identify points that fall within the polygons, but there are polygons that fall between the points along the line that do not get captured during the intersect. I am having to go back through and manually enter the "between" data i.e. 1:2 would mean between point 1 and point 2.

Processes I have tried:

Using Split polyline with layer (point layer), then creating buffer (not dissolved). Then creating buffer from points then intersecting the line buffer with point buffer so that it results in line buffer containing both points data on each side of buffer. This new buffer is then used to intersect with polygons which gives me a polygon containing buffer (with point data) and intersected polygon data.

The above is a lot of work and looking for something that may do this in fewer steps.
