Antrim 1-14 Galway 0-16, Casement Park
Antrim manager Jim McKernan’s first NHL game in charge ended in dramatic fashion as Brian McFall crashed home a late goal for a shock win.
2005 All-Ireland finalists Galway were left stunned at Casement Park despite a ten-point haul from Ger Farragher.
Galway came from behind to lead 0-09 to 0-07 at the break with Farragher, the recalled Eugene Cloonan and Fergal Healy on target.
With the sides locked at 0-12 apiece, Cloonan nudged the visitors in front but substitute McFall netted in the last minute.
McKernan described it as “a major result” but one his side “have to build on.”
