Gary Workman’s 93rd-minute winner bagged Islandmagee a precious three points in a 2-1 home win over Shankill United.
It was a game Island needed to win and they could have been two up early on but for great saves to deny Andy Waide and Philip McCann.
It was the visitors who took the lead on 25 minutes, breaking the offside trap and cooly finding the net.
Island dominated during the second session and were back level when Workman fired home from the spot after a foul on Ryan Kane.
Deep into additional time, Workman’s 30-yard shot bamboozled the Shankill keeper to give Stephen Donald’s battling young guns a hard-earned victory.
Islandmagee: Halliday, Smyth, Hilditch, Phillips (Griffiths), Matthews, Workman, Kane, Spence, Baird, McCann (MacDonald), Waide. Sub not used: Devine.
