Jordan Campbell pounced in the box from Craig Taylor's throw to equalise with 56 minutes on the clock.
A foul in the box on Tiarnan McDonald led to a penalty for the home side, Stephen Murray giving Annagh the lead in 65th minute.
Another penalty allowed Paul McElroy the chance to equalise for the Sky Blues, then after another 5 minutes Keeley got onto the end of a Ryan Waide cross to take the lead.
In the dying minutes Waide slipped a pass through to Jude Winchester who fired home to seal the game.
Ballymena United are at home for the first time this season when we host Glenavon in the Danske Bank Premiership on Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm.
