GLYNN AND BONIS ON TARGET AS LARNE EDGE CLOSER
Larne took a huge step towards a first league title with a two-goal defeat of Glentoran at Inver Park.
Tiernan Lynch's side got off to a positive start with Micheal Glynn seeing an early effort drift off target, followed by an Aaron Donnelly attempt from distance and then Glentoran defender Luke McCullough making a crucial intervention to thwart Leroy Millar.
But Larne did find a way through after a quarter-of-an-hour. Tomas Cosgrove sent a cross over from the right for Paul O'Neill to control and find Glynn who kept his composure to calmly direct the ball past Aaron McCarey.
Then, five minutes after that, Glynn turned provider with a cross into the area for Lee Bonis to turn and fire into the top corner from close range.
Larne looked to extend their lead even further after the break with Fuad Sule having a go from 25 yards with the ball just narrowly failing to find the target.
At the other end Rohan Ferguson showed great reflexes to turn the ball to safety after it came off Glynn while James Singleton sent a volley just wide a short time after that.
Andy Ryan threatened Larne's third with a first time volley from the edge of the area, and Bonis somehow failed to double his tally after connecting with a low Cosgrove delivery.
