Antrim minor hurlers suffered a 8-26 to 0-12 hammering by Galway in Saturday's All-Ireland Championship quarter-final at Parnell Park.
Goals from Shane Maloney, Jonathan Glynn and Billy Lane helped Galway lead 3-14 to 0-8 at half-time.
Half-time substitute Jack Carr then notched three goals in a 10-minute period after half-time.
Further goals from Shane Caulfield and Jason Flynn piled on the agony for the Saffrons in the closing stages.
Daniel McCloskey top-scored for Antrim with six points but the 38-point hammering made it a chastening experience for the Ulster champions.
