Antrim 0-11

Dublin 2-20

DUBLIN DELIVERED A statement of intent at Pairc Esler in Newry with a comprehensive 15-point win over Antrim to book their place in the semi-finals of the Electric Ireland All-Ireland minor hurling championship.

From the Dubs’ tally of 2-20, Sean Currie racked up 2-13 in what was an irresistible individual display.

It was 0-10 to 0-03 at half-time before the Na Fianna man struck two goals in the second period as his side upped the ante and had far too much for the men from the Orchard.

They started brightly and never looked back as Currie racked up six points in the opening half alone.

And when he found the net for the first time shortly after the restart, it was just a case of damage limitation from Antrim.

By the time they reached double-figures, Currie had goaled again while some other Dublin players also managed to get in on the act before the full-time whistle as Mark Grogan, Emmet Allan and Cian Derwin all knocked over points.

Dublin now join Cork, Kilkenny and Galway in the final four.
