Chris Elliott enjoyed a rare appearance on the Hanover scoresheet as Marshall Cup progress arrived against The Ambassadors.
Elliott’s speculative long-range effort found the top corner to kick off the weekend scoring.
Regan McIlveen’s success from the penalty spot increased the advantage ahead of half-time following increased pressure.
The visitors made it 2-1 after the interval.
However, the tie’s crucial strike arrived when Justin Bradley converted with a close-range finish to cap a Simon Foster pass.
