Antrim produced a stunning comeback at Casement Park to secure their first Allianz NFL Division Two victory.

Meath led by five early in the game but Tony Scullion's brilliant point inspired the fightback and the Saffrons were 0-7 to 0-6 ahead at half-time.

Brian Meade was sent-off for Meath before Paddy Cunningham scored his ninth point to put Antrim four clear.

Meath's Joe Sheridan saw his penalty hit the woodwork and team-mate Thomas Walsh was dismissed late on.

Meath regained the lead early the second half before Antrim moved ahead again.

Meade was dismissed after two yellow cards while Walsh received a straight red.

Kevin Niblock, Sean Burke and Terry O'Neill were also among the Saffrons scorers in west Belfast.

Antrim won despite having Justin Crozier, Kevin Niblock and Kevin Brady forced off through injury.

The victory takes the Saffrons off the bottom and up two places to sixth.
