Antrim drew with Carlow 1-12 to 0-15 in their Division Four game at St Paul's.

Ryan Murray scored the first point of the game, with Michael Pollock adding four points and Owen Gallagher one as Antrim trailed 0-7 to 0-6 at half-time.

Paul Broderick contributed five of Carlow's first half points and added another three early in the second.

Gallagher scored the only goal two minutes into the second half and Antrim managed a draw despite having Niall McKeever sent off 10 minutes from time.

McKeever saw red for receiving two yellow cards.

Carlow had a goal disallowed for a square ball but took a slender lead into the break after Murray and McKeever missed chances to put the Saffrons ahead late in the half.

Good work by Tony Scullion set up Gallagher, who finished off a sweeping move to give Frank Fitzsimons's side an early boost after the interval.

Ryan Murray received a black card and his brother Conor later joined him on the line for another black card offence.

McKeever's dismissal left Antrim up against it but Gallagher pointed to put them ahead, before Darragh O'Brien grabbed the point which ultimately levelled the match.
