POINTS SHARED IN EAST ANTRIM DERBY

Larne gained their second point of the campaign with this draw at home to leaders Ballyclare Comrades.

Clifford Adams' visitors moved in front midway through the first half courtesy of a strong Dean Youle finish from inside the area after Larne's defence failed to adequately deal with a corner.

However, the Inver Reds levelled on the stroke of half-time when Daniel Reynolds sent a perfectly weighted free-kick from the edge of the area past Geoff McKinty into the top corner.

Larne: McConnell, Bradley, Thompson, Abe, Holland, Kottoy, Downey, Henry, Reynolds, Stuart, McCabe subs Fornah (not used), Chisanga (not used), Scullion (replaced Stuart 66), Tolan (replaced Kottoy 62), McLaren (not used)

Ballyclare Comrades: McKinty, Woods, Parker, Youle, Rodgers, McIlveen, Robinson, Dobbin, Kelly, Gray, Maguire subs Flood (not used), McQuitty (not used), O'Hanlon (replaced Gray 65), Johnston (replaced Dobbin 73), Nixon (replaced Robinson 57)
