AS ARDS were establishing an eight point lead at the top of the table with a 3-2 win over a battling Loughgall side the weather was playing havoc and had already put paid to the Carrick/Bangor game at Taylors Avenue.

A late pitch inspection proved the saturated ground to be unplayable and over the hill in Larne at Inver Park the referee decided that the pitch there too had also become unplayable after twenty two minutes of play.

For the record, Institute lead Larne by one goal to nil at the time of abandonment.
