Fermanagh crush Saffrons

Antrim scored four points in a row in a six-minute period of the second half but for the other 66 plus minutes they were a distant second to a much slicker Fermanagh side.

Eddie Courtney hit three points in a second-half cameo with Tomas Corrigan also getting two. After trailing by 11 at the break, Antrim got their scores in the second half with Tomas McCann shooting four in a dismal visiting display.
