Celtic exited the third round qualifying of the FA Trophy after a 3-2 defeat away at Marine.
Goals from Kyle Hawley and Jon Ustabasi werenâ€™t enough, with Ustabasi missing a penalty in the 93rd minute of the game.
Marine started the better side and deservedly took the lead on 17 minutes. A tame strike from the edge of the area was parried by Tom Stewart, into the path of Nialll Cummins who stabbed home from a couple of yards out.
Celtic looked to respond and Ustabasi saw a header cleared off the line after a dangerous ball in from Freddie Sass.
Evangelinos also saw a headed effort but he couldnâ€™t find the target.
Marine dominated the majority of the play and Celticâ€™s best chances were coming on the counter.
On 37 minutes, Celtic did level. Charley Doyle was able to retrieve the ball half way inside of Marineâ€™s half, he found Hawley who was just to the right hand side of the penalty area, he let the ball come across him before firing a powerful effort across goal and into the bottom left corner to score his first Celtic goal.
Marine managed to re-take the lead in added time of the first half. A really soft free-kick was given by the referee, the ball was delivered and Anthony Miley ghosted in at the back post to restore Marineâ€™s lead.
Celtic couldnâ€™t have wished for a better start to the second half. A lovely free-flowing move down the right hand side saw Hawley, Evangelinos and Harris involved, the ball was worked across the pitch to Ustabasi who struck a first time effort from just outside the area into the net.
Celtic continued to press and Doyle saw a shot from range put behind for a corner but as the game went on, the hosts got back into the driving seat.
On 63 minutes, a ball across goal from the left was initially blocked by Sass, but at the second attempt Cummins fired under Stewart to restore Marineâ€™s lead.
Marine then had a penalty with 20 minutes to go. Sephton fouled a Marine attacker who had raced free into the penalty area.
James Barrigan stepped up but saw his penalty superbly saved by Stewart, diving down to the keeperâ€™s right.
Moments later, Jordan Helliwell had to clear a header off the line as Marine pushed for a fourth.
With nine minutes to go, a long throw from Sass was headed across goal by Sephton, Ustabasi arrived at the far post but he couldnâ€™t connect with the ball.
There was late drama in added time. A ball into the box by Luke Barlow was spilled by the keeper, Ustabasi was a first to it and was clattered by the keeper.
Ustabasi stepped up but blasted the ball over the bar and the final whistle went with Marine progressing.
