Larne made it 14 games unbeaten with this three-goal defeat of Portadown at Shamrock Park.

The visitors moved in front after 14 minutes when Ben Tilney's cross came off keeper Declan Dunne before going over the line.

Then, on 26 minutes, Paddy McNally nodded home a second at the near post after meeting a Martin Donnelly corner.

Further chances followed but it was Donnelly himself who completed the scoring just after the hour after he raced onto Tomas Cosgrove's through ball to slot beyond Dunne.
