Antrim and Down are to meet in a replay to decide the winners of the Guinness Ulster Hurling Championship.

The sides ended Sunday's first meeting at Casement Park locked on 1-15 each and are due to meet again on 13 June at the same Belfast venue.

Antrim led by 1-08 to 1-07 at the break, their goal coming in the 13th minute when Mickey Herron found the net from a Paddy Richmond knock-down.

Martin Coulter Junior scored a penalty for Down on 29 minutes.

Antrim manager Dinny Cahill was not unhappy with the outcome.

"I think a draw was a fair result on the balance of play," said Cahill.

"Down had a great chance near the end when the ball hit a goalpost and came back into play.

"Then we had a point controversially not allowed."

Antrim: D Quinn; G Cunningham, K Kelly, B Herron; M McCambridge, K Keegan, J Campbell; C Herron, J Connolly; M Herron, C McGuickian (capt), L Richmond; D Quinn, P Richmond, B McFall.

Down: Graham Clarke; L Clarke, S Murray, J H Hughes; Gabriel Clarke, G Savage, S Wilson; A Savage, G Adair; G McGrattan, G Johnson, B McGourty; M Coulter (capt), J Convery, M Braniff.
