Daniel Ryan’s injury time leveller secured Loughgall earned an impressive point to undefeated league leaders Institute.
Earlier in the game, three minutes before the break, Ryan missed a wonderful opportunity when he touched the ball past Institute goalkeeper Michael Doherty however he was off-balance when shooting wide with an empty net gaping.
The hosts grabbed what they thought was the winning goal in the 82nd minute when Matty Crossan fired in a rebound after goalkeeper Willie McKinstry did well to push Matty McCrudden’s initial free-kick onto the post.
The equaliser came through the ingenuity of Wesley Boyle as he audaciously flicked the ball over the Stute defence and Ryan fired across goal into the far corner of the net.
