Drogheda twice came from behind to deprive UCD of victory in an eventful game at Belfield.

Darren Quigley saved well from Jermaine Sandvliet on 12 minutes, before UCD took the lead at the other end four minutes later.

Gary Dicker and Stephen Hurley were involved before Alan Mahon sent over the cross and Anto Murphy applied the finish.

A stunning Keith Fahey free-kick had Drogheda level on 40 minutes.

But College struck again in first-half stoppage time to regain the lead when Dicker headed home Hurley’s corner.

Declan O’Brien hit back to earn Drogheda their point with a second equaliser 20 minutes from time.
