INVER REDS MARCH ON
Larne remain top of the table on goal difference following a 3-0 defeat of Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.
Scoreless at the break, Paul O'Neill came closest to breaking the deadlock with a volley from inside the area that Swifts keeper Declan Dunne did well to turn away.
But O'Neill wasn't to be denied just a couple of minutes into the second half when he was brought down to win a spot-kick which he then converted himself into the top corner.
O'Neill had a couple of chances to double Larne's advantage, but that finally fell to Joe Thomson just after the hour with a close range finish after the ball fell for him from Shea Gordon's initial effort.
Then, on 75 minutes, Andy Ryan added Larne's third after bundling the ball over the line on the rebound after Dunne had kept out his first attempt.
