Antrim hurlers lost by a point, 0-13 to 1-9, in their Allianz NHL Division 2 game against Clare at Casement Park.

Clare scored the opening point but Neil McManus fired home a penalty after Conor McAllister had been fouled.

Clare recovered to level at 1-2 to 0-5 and led 0-9 to 1-5 at half-time despite McManus having scored 1-3 for Antrim.

Clare continued to enjoy a slim lead and Antrim were unable to capitalise after Fergal Lynch was given a straight red card for a foul on Karl McKeegan.

After opening wins against Kildare and Carlow, Antrim were well beaten at Casement Park last weekend by Laois.

Down earned their first points of the Allianz NHL Division 2 campaign as they edged out Kildare 2-16 to 1-15 in Saturday's encounter at Newbridge.

Paul Braniff hit an impressive 1-9 for Down while Ciaran O'Prey notched Down's other goal with Simon Wilson also contributing three points.

Braniff's goal helped Down lead 1-9 to 0-8 at half-time.
