Antrim’s late flurry sees off 14-man London

Midway through the first half Antrim led 0-5 to 0-1 but the Exiles rallied and trailed 0-6 to 0-5 at the break.

Antrim opened up a six-point gap early in the second half and, although reduced to 14 men when Noel McDonald received a straight red, goals from Martin Duggan and Kevin Walsh put two between the sides. However, Antrim added six points without reply to seal victory.
