GALWAY side St Thomas’ produced a stunning second half display to dethrone the All Ireland Champions in Clones this afternoon.

Bernard Burke struck 0-04 for St Thomas' in what was a tense game, and the sides were level in the early stages of the second half but St Thomas' found another level - hitting eight points without reply to claim the game.

Their scores included some glorious efforts from Burke and Conor Cooney.

It was a disappointing afternoon for the defending champions who only managed to score one point from play - despite what could be considered a high quality game for this time of year.

Loughgiel spurned a number of goal chances in the opening quarter as both Liam Watson and Benny McCarry went close.

But a James Regan-inspired Thomas began to settle after that and had a 0-5 to 0-2 lead by the 17th minute.

Watson kept the Antrim side in touch and there was only the minimum between the sides at the break.

And when Antrim's star forward brought the sides level moments into the second half there was little indication of what was to come from St Thomas'.

The Galway side notched a scarcely-credible eight points on the bounce with Cooney (4), Burke (3), and Richie Murray all laying the foundations for what became a relatively-comfortable victory.
