Antrim smashed


Limerick 3-26 Antrim 0-12: A second half surge from Munster champions Limerick put Antrim to the sword in this round two tie in Division 1B of the Allianz National Hurling League yesterday in Limerick's Gaelic Grounds.

Kevin Ryan's Antrim were just 0-11 to 0-6 in arrears at half-time and had the wind to their backs in the second period. Alas they made little inroads in the second period as goals from Seanie Tobin and substitutes David Reidy and William Hickey eased Limerick towards a 23-point victory.

Entering the second half just five points ahead, Limerick hit the travelling side with seven quick-fire points on the resumption to open a 0-18 to 0-8 lead before the three goals sealed the win.

Limerick scorers: Conor Allis 0-11 (6frees), Seanie Tobin 1-3, Tom Ryan 0-4, David Reidy and William Hickey 1-0 each, Wayne McNamara and Thomas O'Brien 0-2 each, Donal O'Grady, Paudie O'Brien, Tommy Quaid, James Ryan 0-1 each.

Antrim scorers: Pauls Shields 0-7 (3frees), Ciaran Clarke, Darren Hamill, Niall McKenna, Neal McAuley, Neil McManus 0-1 each.
