Robbie Hume struck twice as Limavady United defeated Portstewart at Seahaven to book their place in the Second Round of the BetMcLean League Cup.
All five goals came in the second half with Hume opened the scoring on 46 minutes before Johnny Stewart levelled for the Seahawks just before the hour.
Declan McKeever restored the Roesiders advantage with a 72nd minute thunderbolt with Hume extending their lead a few minutes after that.
Luke McDowell reduced the deficit in stoppage time but it proved to be too little, too late to force extra-time.
