Aidan Carr saved Down's blushes as they secured a late draw with Antrim in the Dr McKenna Cup after the Mourne men had led by six points at half-time.

Down led by 0-9 to 0-3 at half-time, with Martin Clarke leading the charge for James McCartan's side.

Both sides were reduced to 14 men early in the second half as James Colgan and Tomas McCann got straight red cards.

Paddy Cunningham's points helped Antrim lead with seven minutes left but Carr's late score ensured the draw.

Colgan and McCann received their marching orders after being involved in an off-the-ball incident.

Antrim defender Tony Scullion was forced off in the closing stages by injury.

The draw moves Antrim to the top of the Section C with three points while Down are on one point after two games.
