Down are set to play Tyrone in the Dr McKenna Cup Semi Final on Sunday at the Athletic Grounds, Armagh after cruising past Antrim 2-17 to 0-15 in Newry last night.

Barry O’Hagan and Corey Quinn grabbed both goals in the first-half for the home side as they led by 2-8 to 0-7 and they’d kick on early in the restart with points from Pat Havern, O’Hagan and captain Darren O’Hagan.

Paddy McBride and Adam Loughran helped raise the Saffrons’ tally in the final quarter but it was too little, too late as Paddy Tally’s team were already safely through to the last four against holders Tyrone.
