Antrim show their grit to stay top after London victory

London 0-11 Antrim 1-11

Antrim remain top of Division Four after a hard-fought win over London at the Irish TV Grounds in Ruislip yesterday.

Kevin O'Boyle's fourth-minute goal cancelled out two points from London duo Eoin Murray and Adrian Moyles, and it would prove the difference as the Saffrons ran out 1-11 to 0-11 victors.

Antrim took a one-point lead into the break, Tomas McCann firing three scores as the visitors led 1-5 to 0-7, but the Exiles reclaimed the lead after the turn.

The visitors upped their intensity and James Laverty pulled the sides level on 53 minutes, before a brace of points from Conor Murray put Antrim in control.

O'Boyle added a point to put the Saffrons three clear, but Lorcan Mulvey reduced the deficit. Ryan Murray hit the final score.
