Annagh United maintained their 100% record with victory over Queen's University who also went into the game with six points from the opening two games.
Scott McCordick opened the scoring for United after 11 minutes when he finished off Craig Taylor's cross from the left.
Queen's hit back with two goals either side of the half-hour mark to seize the advantage.
Ryan McCready levelled on 27 minutes after connecting with Chris Middleton's ball from the right flank before, four minutes later, Ciaran O'Hare hammered an effort from ten yards past Annagh keeper John Convery with Middleton again creating the opportunity.
Annagh levelled a short time later, though, thanks to Ruairi McDonald's close range tap in before, on the stroke of half-time, Taylor turned the tables back in Annagh's favour with a low shot past Declan Brown after racing past the defence.
The second half was more of an even affair with both teams creating chances but failing to convert with Annagh keeper Convery doing well to protect their lead.
However, with eight minutes left, Taylor made sure of the points when he rushed onto a through ball to take it past Brown and into an empty net.
