The Saffrons, whose accepted superiority over the rest of the province has seen them also compete in the Leinster Championship, were given a stern test by a game oak leaf side playing on their home turf.

In fact, Derry led for much of the contest, holding a slender 1-9 to 1-8 advantage at half time, before going four up to lead by 2-14 to 2-10 heading into the closing stages.

In a frantic finish the lead was exchanged twice, before Dan McKernan's injury-time point saw Antrim over the line by 2-17 to 2-16.
