We closed a busy month of March with our tenth league draw of the season.

In the one change to the line up from the midweek game Bradon Luke came back in with Brad Smith on the bench.

The opening minute saw Buchanan block a Paterson free kick while minutes later at the other a Swann shot was cleared off the line.

Mullen then sent over a corner which eventually found Luke but his shot was blocked, while with 11 minutes gone Pyper deflected a McGuigan shot for a corner at the other end.

In 17 minutes Luke put Buchanan through on goal but his but he was blocked by keeper Smith.

Donaldson then fired in a long range free kick which went just wide while Miller headed over from a Mullen corner.

On the half hour Smith blocked a Malcom shot and seconds later McGurn held a long range effort from Paton.

It was the visitors who eventually made a breakthrough with 37 minutes gone when Mark McGUIGAN headed home from close range after getting on the end of a Ferns cross.

The lead was shot lived and within a minute we were back on level terms when Jordyn SHEERIN worked his way through the Warriors defence before slotting home an angled shot.

As the first half drew to a close Cox headed just over while McGurn saved a Paton header following a Paterson corner.

Nine minutes into the second half Ferns sent a shot across the face of the Cowden goal before Sheerin just failed to get a connection to a Mullen free kick.

Ferns then sent a shot high over while Paterson was denied by McGurn and as the game moved into the closing stages Sheerin sent a free kick over the bar and deep into stoppage time McGuigan headed over from a Donaldson cross.
