New manager Glenn Ferguson saw his Ballymena United team battle out an entertaining draw with Donegal Celtic.
DC skipper Stephen McAlorum headed the visitors ahead on 17 minutes from a Johnny Harkness free-kick.
Just before half-time home captain David Munster headed the equaliser.
Aaron Stewart's well-taken goal, after an exchange with Gary McCutcheon, put United 2-1 up but Paul McVeigh headed in at the near post after a corner to earn the Belfast side a point.
Stewart continued his run and skilfully controlled before shooting past keeper Robert Robinson.
