ANTRIM hurlers can only muse on what might have been as they reflect on Saturday's All-Ireland Hurling Preliminary Quarter-Final defeat to Cork.

The Saffrons led by a point at half-time, 2-11 to 2-10, but their Munster opponents regrouped after the interval to run out 3-27 to 2-19 winners.

James McNaughton and Keelan Molloy hit Antrim's first-half goals with Darragh Fitzgibbon and Lehane netting for Cork.

With the wind at their back, Cork upped the tempo after the break, keeping their opponents at arms' length for most of the second half.

In the end this was a disappointing result for Darren Gleeson's side but they can look back on a successful season in the main.
