Antrim now face Dublin in Round 1 of the Leinster U20 hurling championship

Antrim closed out in impressive fashion to crush Down and book their slot into the first round of the Leinster U20 hurling championship against Dublin.

It finished 3-24 to 2-14 in Ballycran, where the Saffrons fired in three goals in the closing stages to settle the issue against their Mourne counterparts.

Antrim led by 0-12 to 0-7 at the half and looked in control throughout the game’s third quarter until Padraig Doran hit the net hit the net for Down.

Doran’s strike made it 0-18 to 1-11 just before the second water break and when the match resumed after it was the Glensmen that blitzed their opponents with goals to set-up a date with the Dubs.
