Completely laughable that someone from loughgiel is on talking about the behaviour of supporters when their own supporters are probably the worst out there was it not at an under 16 game last year or year before where their supporters pushed the mother of a referee to the ground after a game she was umpiring at. Also the same senior hurler for loughgiel ho was hitting juveniles yesterday was the same player who started the whole palava at last year's minor final  but if he did Indeed hit a juvenile yesterday a lengthy ban from every gaa ground should do him no harm

Thoroughly deserved win for Dunloy today, far superior team. I think Loughgiel would be better off going forward without Watson,as good as he has been, he's now holding them back.

Sure he was arguably their best forward so I donít see how you got that.

Dunloy just too good. Too much speed everywhere and defence just very much on top the whole game. How fast is Seaan Elliot. One of the fastest I have seen in Antrim. Sooner he is in the senior county setup the better.

Dunloy will dominate for a while by the looks of it.

Would love to see them v Slaughtneil

Everything was going through him to the extent they were becoming predictable and easy to stop. He's still a danger but Loughgiel aren't going to improve while he's taking a youngsters spot. Just my opinion.

Everything was going through him because none of the other forwards were winning their battles. It had to go through him.

Thought MR2 had a bit of a stinker today, poor call leading to Dunloys first goal and how much injury time did he signal and play at the end of the first half?

Did Watson only join the team again just after lockdown or was he playing earlier in the year?

Loughgiel just couldnít keep the intensity going. Huge turning point was Dan McCloskey going through with options either side and picking the worst option by going for it himself. Canít help think it would have been a different game had that hit the net. But it didnít and it wasnít. Dunloy full value for it. Theyíre great to watch in full flight. I understand both sides of the Winker debate. Personally think Loughgiel would benefit from bringing in younger, fresher legs if they are hoping to stick to a strong running team like Dunloy in the coming years.

The referee has form for questionable timekeeping as anyone who watched last year's football final can testify.

Not sure Marty. He was meant to have retired. Unsure if it was lockdown or whatever brought him back.

Ok. Thanks.

For however good he was, even today, you'd think there'd be young lads who'd be pushing for a place before him.

Hard to know as we're not privy to when he came back but he oews Loughgiel nothing. A very talented hurler.

Were Loughgiel beat in the camogie recently or was that intermediate?

Dunloy seem to be just ahead of everyone in Antrim. On their day, others could match them but they're building gradually and are getting physically stronger year on year.

Antrim championship was super this year - honourable mention to St. John's and Rossa also.
