Antrim without breaking a sweat, they are out of the Walsh Cup now so will have a full panel to pick from

Agreed will have a few big names playing but think they'll still have a few young ones playing who will do damage.

Down were cleaned out around the middle again Donegal especially from puckouts (either keeper) so I'd be fearful that Antrim could run amok unless Down are better organised.
Down did look decent at times with the ball though in fairness

Yeah I was at the game, so much wrong with the Down performance I would find it hard to comment without my message running to about 3 pages

2018 Conor McGurk Cup Final

Antrim 3-26 v 1-14 Down



Need to take some positives out of this; the half-time score was only 1-12 to 1-09 to Antrim. We simply got blown away in the second-half. Realistically, we were NEVER or ARE NEVER going to compete with Antrim as they are simply far too strong just now at senior level.
Give these lads a chance to gel; there's a a lot of young talent in that squad.
