It's as you were at the top of the Danske Bank Premiership following victories for leading trio Larne, Linfield and Crusaders while Warrenpoint Town moved into the top six and Portadown climbed off the bottom.
 
Larne continue to lead the pack after coming from a goal down to defeat Glenavon at Inver Park. Michael O'Connor had fired the visitors in front in first half stoppage time but substitutes Ronan Hale and Johnny McMurray struck in the final 20 minutes to earn another win for Tiernan Lynch's side.
 
Linfield hit two goals without reply in the evening kick-off against Cliftonville at Windsor Park. After a scoreless first half a quick fire double from Shayne Lavery and Kirk Millar within five minutes of the restart was enough for the Blues to claim the points.
 
Crusaders stay third after two goals late in proceedings against Glentoran at Seaview. With the game looking destined to finish scoreless Jordan Forsythe and Ross Clarke struck within moments of each other to secure the win for the Crues.
 
Warrenpoint Town moved into the top six after victory over Carrick Rangers at the Loughshore Hotel Arena. Alan O'Sullivan opened the scoring after just four minutes, Ryan Swan doubled 'Point's advantage just before the break before Kealan Dillon added a third midway through the second half with Lloyd Anderson grabbing a late consolation for the home side.
 
Meanwhile, there was a scoreless draw at Shamrock Park between Portadown and Ballymena United. The point moved the Ports off the bottom while, for the Sky Blues, it meant another clean sheet and a step up into fourth spot in the standings.
