Westmeath - Hurlers 2017

When you remove 3/4 of the better players there isn't the strength in depth as shown in the earlier games
I suppose it's the same with any team

Take into account that a lot of 1b teams wouldnt fancy going up to cushendall or ballycastle, as antrim playing at home is usally a good few points advantage to them, so in retrospect it was a good westmeath win on sunday

Westmeath's hurlers came away from Cushendall with a two-point victory but despite the defeat, Antrim will take their place in Saturday's Division 2A final against Carlow. Antrim, who played the final 25 minutes with 14 men, suffered their first loss of the campaign to a Westmeath side who just about deserved their win. It was a battle of the free-takers with Westmeath's Allan Devine converting 11 of his side's points from the placed ball and Deaglan Murphy converting 0-10 for Antrim. The Saffrons came alive for the closing stages of the first half, outscoring their visitors to leave it all square at the break. Antrim added the opening two points of the second half through Murphy but a straight red card for Ciaran Johnston saw them down to 14 men.

Scorers - Antrim: D Murphy 0-12 (10f), C Clarke 1-0, N McManus (f), Conor Johnston & N McKenna 0-1 each. Westmeath: A Devine 0-12 (11f), A Clarke, N O'Brien and D McNicholas 0-2 each, P Greville (f) and J Galvin 0-1 each.

Is Cormac Boyle with the footballers or the hurlers or both. I thought I read in the paper that he came on for the footballers in Wexford but according to the hurling report above he came on in Antrim?? He's a loss to the hurlers by not being with them fulltime yet he's not making an impact with the footballers yet. Hard to do both.
