Antrim 1-12 London 1-8

Antrim remain in the promotion hunt after this win over London at Toome. The ball was in the Antrim net after only 45 seconds when Alan O’Hara blasted to the net, but Antrim responded almost immediately with a penalty from Conor McGourty.

However, the hosts were reduced to 14 men when Conor Burke needlessly kicked out at Paraic McGoldrick after he had fouled the London forward.

Black cards for midfield duo Cathal Óg Greene and Mark Gottsche allowed Antrim to pull away in the last 10 minutes.
