Lurgan Celtic hit the woodwork three times during the scoreless first half. On 19 minutes a hanging cross caught in the wind and struck the stanction of the goal before, a couple of minutes later, Stefan Campbell saw a deflected effort cannon off the bar while a later effort grazed the bar before falling to safety.

The Hoops did find a way through, however, early in the second half when Paul Owens lost possession allowing Campbell to slam the ball home.

Robbie Hume levelled for Limavady just after the hour with a scrappy finish in off a defender after Gerald Gillan spotted him down the left.

And the visitors moved in front five minutes after that when John Watt stooped to nod the ball past Shane Partland at the near post from an Owens corner.

Celtic made it 2-2 on 82 minutes thanks to Raymond Fitzpatrick's point blank header from a corner but, four minutes after that, Hume restored the Roesiders' lead after shaking off his marker to stroke the ball home from an Owens pass.

However, the points were shared when, right at the end, Campbell tucked the ball past Paul Wells at the back post after a cross from the right wasn't cleared.
