There was a dramatic finish in the only Danske Bank Premiership match on Saturday afternoon.
Cliftonville looked set to claim victory in the north Belfast derby at Solitude,
but a last-minute goal from Ben Kennedy gave Crusaders a 2-2 draw.
The other two scheduled fixtures were postponed because of frozen pitches.

Ulster's unbeaten run in the PRO14 came to an end as they were beaten 24-12 by inter-pro rivals Leinster at the RDS in Dublin on Friday night.
The hosts scored four tries to earn a bonus point win and cut Ulster's lead in Conference A to five points, with Leinster having two games in hand.
John Cooney kicked all the points for Dan McFarland's men but their 10-game winning run in the league is over.
Here's a bitterly disappointed Ulster captain Sam Carter:
