Ryan Nimick grabbed a stoppage time equaliser for Dundela as they shared the spoils with Knockbreda at Wilgar Park.
In very blustery conditions the game started at a high tempo with both teams having some difficulty adapting to the conditions.
'Breda were making inroads particularly down the right with Jordan Baker and Patrick Cafolla having shots saved midway through the first half.
Dundela almost took the lead before the half-hour mark when an initial effort from a free-kick 20 yards out was blocked by the wall with a rebound shot from David McMaster dealt with by a great save from Dean Smyth, palming the ball over the bar.
Knockbreda deservedly took the lead on 70 minutes when a penalty was awarded for a foul in the box with Baker sending Jonathan Sergeant the wrong way.
Dundela levelled, however, right at the end when a shot was blocked by Smyth but unfortunately the rebound was headed in from six yards by substitute Ryan Nimick.
