NEFL Premier Division

Rock Celtic 2-2 Square United

Square United were left devastated as Rock Celtic earned a share of the spoils with an injury-time goal at Sandy Lane on Friday night.

Rock had taken an early lead via Barry O'Hare's cracking volley, but Alan Kirk's brace - one on either side of the break - meant Square turned the game on its head to lead.

The Ardee side continued to enjoy the upper hand, but four minutes into stoppage time, substitute Des McKeown's clever flick was sent past Square 'keeper Eoin Muldoon by Kizito Ekwueme as Rock rescued an unlikely point.
