Carlow 2-18 Antrim 1-11
-
Carlow preserved their status as a Leinster SHC side after a fiery encounter where both they and Antrim finished with 13 men at Dr Cullen Park.
-
Antrim could not make the most of an extra man for a large chunk of the game and now drop to the Christy Ring tournament next year.
-
Antrim trailed by 0-08 to 1-03 at the break but were unable to make wind advantage count during the second half.
-
Carlow, who found themselves trailing by 1-02 to 0-01 after just 10 minutes despite playing with the wind, looked to be in serious trouble when free-taker Martin Kavanagh was sent off after 20 minutes.
-
They had drawn level at that stage after Antrim got a great boost in the early stages when they punished hesitant defending for Conor Johnston to find the net.
-
Carlow responded well to the dismissal of their full-forward by shooting points from Paul Coady and Sean Murphy but Ciaran Clarke’s second free of the half left Antrim just two points adrift at the interval.
-
But Antrim, with 14 wides to Carlow’s eight, were not able to make the breeze count in the second half.
