HONOURS ended even in Larne's Belfast Telegraph Championship 1 clash with Ards at Dixon Park in Ballyclare.

It was a just result on the balance of play in a game which was very much a match of two halves.

Larne dominated the opening period, but Ards regrouped at the break and took charge in the second half.

The visitors got the opening goal of the game in double quick time, with the first attack of the game in the first minute.

Allen Reid charged down the left flank, roasted the Ards full back before delivering a cross which was headed in by Paul Maguire – the striker's 14th goal of the season.

Ards got an early goal of their own in the second period. On 50 minutes, Ryan Berry was allowed to direct a header at goal unmarked.

Brian Neeson got a touch to it, but couldn't keep it out.
