Warrenpoint Town booked their place in the next round of the BetMcLean League Cup following this victory over Annagh United.
The sides traded goals in the opening quarter-of-an-hour with Eamon Scannell edging 'Point in front after nine minutes before Jackson Holmes levelled for the home side just three minutes later following a mistake by keeper Berratt Türker.
However, Ciaran O'Connor restored Warrenpoint's lead midway through the first half.
Then, just before the hour, Robbie Norton stepped up to slot home a penalty to complete the scoring, squeezing the ball home at the right post despite Shane McPartland correctly guessing which way to dive.
