Evergreen Shea Campbell grabbed Armagh City's winner from an entertaining visit to Mill Meadow to face Moyola Park.
The Eagles moved in front as early as the ninth minute when Edison Tavares nodded Stefan McKenna's deflected cross past keeper Marcin Farniok.
However, Steven McQuillan levelled for Moyola with just over a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock with a right-foot volley which gave Daniel Devine no chance.
Armagh regained the advantage midway through the first half with Campbell's first of the afternoon with a finish into the bottom corner from Tavares' knockdown.
But Moyola equalised again eight minutes from the break with McQuillan's second of the game, beating the offside trap to touch home the rebound from a set piece.
City's winner came on 54 minutes after McKenna's free-kick from the left reached Campbell at the near post and he was on hand to nudge the ball over the line.
