Derry were no match for a rampant Antrim side in the Ulster MHC final at Owenbeg.

Goals from "Man-of-the-Match" Christy McNaughton and Conor Patterson wrapped up a comfortable 15-point victory for the Saffrons.

Keelan Feeney and McNaughton exchanged green flags in the opening period and the visitors enjoyed a six point - 1-10 to 1-4 - half-time cushion.

The second-half followed a similar pattern with Antrim outscoring their opponents by 1-11 to 0-5.

Patterson applied the gloss to his team's victory when finding the back of the Oak Leaf net with four minutes left on the clock.
