The game started at a fast pace with the sides exchanging chances. The best of which fell to the hosts as they had a header just wide and hit the post in the opening 10 minutes.
Stephen Conlan then had to save from Luke Kelly on 26 minutes not long before Alan McGreal fired over after earning the right to shoot after a clever turn.
Bangor, obviously hurting from their defeat to Leixlip the week previous, continued to look dangerous as both sides pushed for an opener. However saves from Morgan Cranley and Conlan ensured the sides went in level at the break.
The home side started the second period the brighter and after a 15 minute spell of pressure took the lead in brilliant fashion.
Aaron Coleman let fly from outside the box and found the top corner to smash never mind break the deadlock.
The visitors did attempt to get back into the game, but Bangor looked relatively comfortable. However, just when it looked like they were going to hold out for a good win Kelly struck late on earn Mocthas a point.
