It proved to be a disappointing night at Inver Park as Larne made their exit from the Europa Conference League following a 1-0 defeat to St Joseph’s.
Substitute Julian Valarino scored 12 minutes from time – 60 seconds after Larne had been reduced to 10 men with Mark Randall’s second yellow card – to bag the only goal of the tie and set-up a tie with Slavia Prague.
