Blues striker Paul Smyth was named man of the match, earning praise from Northern Ireland's record scorer Healy.
Meanwhile, midfielder Lowry reckons the Blues can still catch Crusaders in the title race.
Cliftonville manager Gerard Lyttle admits they were well beaten.
The Reds are just one point ahead of fourth-placed Coleraine and Lyttle says they need to get their act together to stay in the hunt for a European place.
