Lewis Irwin (32)


Darren Stuart (31)
David Scullion (62)
David Abe (65)



Darren Stuart opened the scoring for Tiernan Lynch's side just after the half-hour when he got behind the 'Breda defence to roll the ball into the net.

Lewis Irwin levelled moments later, however, when he squeezed the ball past Larne 'keeper Stephen McConnell from an acute angle after connecting with a ball over the top.

Michael Halliday might have edged 'Breda in front early in the second half only to send the ball the wrong side of the target with substitute 'keeper Conor Devlin beaten.

But Larne regained the advantage - and ultimately the points - with two goals in three minutes just after the hour.

David Scullion made it 2-1, sending the ball past David Ferguson after Julien Anau knocked on a Devlin clearance while, on 65 minutes, Scullion turned provider when his corner was nodded home by David Abe.

'Breda ended the game with eight men. Jamie Patterson was dismissed with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining for a second bookable offence while William McBurney and Ciaran Murray joined him in the closing moments.
