Tobermore United and Newington shared the goals and the points following this meeting at Fortwilliam Park.
Ryan Winton opened the scoring for Tobermore after 12 minutes when he slotted home a superb pass from Daibhibd McIvor.
Newington might have levelled six minutes but Kevin Hughes could only hit the post following a goalmouth scramble.
On the half hour mark Tobermore had the ball in the net after a deflected shot from McIvor but it was judged to be offside.
The first chance of the second half fell to Tobermore as Peter Duffin put the ball over the keeper but he wasn't strong enough to hold off the attentions of a Newington defender.
On 57 minutes Anthony McGonnell saw a potential equaliser palmed over the bar by Lukasz Bednarz before, with just over a quarter-of-an-hour remaining, Robbie McVarnock pounced on a defensive error to earn the visitors a share of the spoils.
