Antrim will represent Ulster in this year's inaugural Leinster U20 hurling championship after hammering Down by 22 points in tonight's play-off at Pairc Esler.

With goals coming from Sean Elliott (penalty) and Conal Bohill (2), the Saffrons ran out 3-27 to 1-11 winners over the Mourne County in Newry to set up a first round meeting with Carlow on May 25 when they will bid to avenge last year's 3-22 to 1-19 extra-time defeat to the Barrowsiders at the same stage.
