IT took two late points to seal another Ulster under 21 hurling championship for Antrim at Casement Park against Armagh last night.
The sides were level three times in the second-half with Armagh edging closer to a first ever provincial title at the grade when Tony Duffy tapped home their second goal after 52 minutes.
Antrim then went ahead through James Black and Ciarán Johnston — son of Armagh manager Michael — before Conor Corvan tied matters with a minute on the clock. But Antrim dug deep to produce two injury time scores to seal the win.
