The first half witnessed two teams play very attractive attacking football and both had opportunities. However, at half time the result possibly reflected the balance of play.

Larne made the breakthrough in the 57th minute when a long throw in found the unmarked striker, Paul Maguire, just inside the 18-yard box. He had time and space to turn and pick out the top left hand corner of the net, giving 'keeper Jordan Williamson no chance.

The PSNI salvaged a point with five minutes remaining when Lukasz Adamczyk was awarded a penalty following an incident with Kevin Bradley before stepping up to fire the spot-kick past Joel Madison.
