Down seconds walked off the pitch at the end of this Junior 6 encounter wondering how on earth they conspired to get it so badly wrong in front of goal.
The home side created a bagful of chances over the 70 minutes but could not kill off their opponents who managed to hang on for a draw.
Down started with the experienced Steven Fitzsimons at sweeper and he never put a foot wrong all afternoon, while 'keeper Owen Toner again impressed with a number of comfortable saves. The Swail twins, Ryan and Aaron, also impressed in defence.
The new Senior Two season opened at Malone Park last weekend with a cracking derby tie between Down and newcomers Newcastle.
The sides served up a feast of goals in brilliant sunshine with the visitors delighted to leave with a point, having lost 10-3 to their opponents just seven days earlier in a Linden Cup tie at Douglas Park.
The Newcastle side included a number of players who have transferred from Ballynahinch, while Down have lost James Ferguson and Richard Hamilton to the newcomers.
