Antrim continue to top Division 4 after a deserved eight-point victory over Waterford at the WIT arena in Carriganore yesterday.

This was a second successive victory for the Saffrons with a goal in each half from Ryan Murray and Conor Murray hugely instrumental in helping Lenny Harbinson's side garner the two league points.

The sides were level 0-2 apiece when Ryan Murray struck a goal in the 20th minute after good work from full-forward Conor Murray. The Murray brothers were a handful all afternoon for a struggling Waterford defence.

Antrim showed greater composure on the ball and were far more incisive in attack, leading 1-6 to 0-5 at half-time.

Jason Curry hit a point shortly after the restart to reduce the margin to a goal but the home side suffered a major blow when talisman Paul Whyte was dismissed for a second yellow after 47 minutes.

The excellent Niall McKeever cut through the Waterford defence before putting Conor Murray in for Antrim's decisive second goal in the 57th minute, to put his side 2-9 to 0-8 ahead.

Parity in numbers was restored with the dismissal of Antrim's Sean Burke, also for a second bookable offence, but despite their best efforts the home side failed to get any closer.

Scorers - Antrim: R Murray 1-3 (2fs); C Murray 1-1; P McBride 0-3; M Fitzpatrick 0-2; P McAleer, P Healy, S Burke 0-1 each. Waterford: Jason Curry 0-3 fs, D Guiry, C Murray, J Veale, P Whyte, D Breathnach, K Power, J.J. Hutchinson (f) 0-1.
