In their semi-final game against Sons of Brou they had a resounding victory
1-14 to 0-6 after a very tough and hard hitting encounter. Down's Brendan
McVeigh, Joe Doran and John Clarke were the backbone of a solid defence and
Kevin Hughes(Tyrone) and Dan Gordan(Down) completely dominated the mid-field
Up front Antrim's Kevin Brady and Derry's Mark O'Neill were both solid
performers with Brady grabbing the only goal of the game and Down's John
Clarke top scoring with 0-6 from the centre-half back spot.
