Eoin Gillan (89)


Aaron Harkin (36)
Alex Pomeroy (63)
Jamie McIntyre (65)



Institute grabbed a crucial three points with this defeat of fellow play-off hopefuls Larne at Inver Park.

Aaron Harkin opened the scoring on 36 minutes after being teed up by Alex Pomeroy to slot the ball past 'keeper Billy Brennan from just inside the area.

Pomeroy himself made it 2-0 on 63 minutes after bypassing the home defence to fire beyond the stranded Brennan from some 25 yards.

Then, a couple of minutes after that, Jamie McIntyre added a third after Pomeroy once more was involved to create the opening for the subsequent finish into the bottom right corner.

Eoin Gillan grabbed an 89th minute consolation for Larne with a close range header from Chris Rodgers' ball across the face of goal.
