Larne moved to the top of the table following a two-goal victory over the previously undefeated Dundela at Wilgar Park.

The visitors moved in front after a quarter-of-an-hour. Thomas Stewart, out on the wing, picked out Martin Donnelly who knocked a sublime finish past keeper Ryan McBride.

Donnelly also threatened with a volley whilst Jeff Hughes came close at the back post before going one better with five minutes of the first half left with a scrambled close range shot.

After the break Nathan Hanley came close to pulling the Duns back into the game with a low drive which Conor Devlin did well to get down to save.

However, very much in control, Larne slowed game down and played at their own as Dundela lacked the sparkle and cutting edge up front to make any sort of breakthrough.
