LSL Senior Sunday
Drumcondra sneaked out of the relegation zone thanks to an injury time Mark Notaro strike on Thursday night.
The 10 men looked destined for a soul and indeed Senior Sunday status destroying defeat until Notaro’s dramatic leveler.
The point moves a side that finished second just two seasons ago out of the bottom three with just one game remaining.
There still remains all manner of drop zone permutations, but Drums will go into the final day now looking to ensure they stay out of the bottom three and hope those with games in hand around them slip up.
Bangor, who are bidding to finish as high as they can, took an early lead via talisman Lar Dunne. The experienced former amateur International tucked away an early penalty.
The home side managed to level with 25 minutes gone via an og, although one Drum’s player was claiming a touch as the ball skipped into the net.
It remained that way until half time. The hosts tentatively pushed forward after the turn and created a few half chances, but it was Bangor who scored next.
Teen Daniel Grant continued his impressive form since being employed more regularly at the tail end of the season as he pounced on a rebound to score with 15 minutes remaining.
Drumcondra’s top scorer Stephen Cantwell then received his marching orders and any hopes of a comeback looked dead and buried.
However, with Bangor claiming they should have won a corner right at the death, Drums went long up the field and Notaro leveled in injury time.
To add insult to injury Dunne was also sent off when he reacted to being brought down 30 yards out.
