Larne are drawn to face red-hot Cookstown after seeing off CYM

Larne's Paul Robinson was still celebrating his team's impressive IBA Senior Cup second round win when news filtered through that a trip to in-form Cookstown was their reward.

The Private Greens League boys produced a very spirited performance against one of the few Bowling League of Ireland teams that are left in the tournament, CYM, to claim a late seven shots victory at Old Glenarm Road.

Even though it was one of Larne's best displays of the season, the result at Cookstown really raised a few eyebrows from the second round fixtures as the Provincial lads demolished cup favourites Whitehead by 30 shots.
