Larne gained their second point of the campaign with this draw at home to leaders Ballyclare Comrades.

Clifford Adams' visitors moved in front midway through the first half courtesy of a strong Dean Youle finish from inside the area after Larne's defence failed to adequately deal with a corner.

However, the Inver Reds levelled on the stroke of half-time when Daniel Reynolds sent a perfectly weighted free-kick from the edge of the area past Geoff McKinty into the top corner.
