Tomas McCann's injury-time free from 50 metres earned Antrim a last-gasp victory over Sligo in Saturday's NFL Division 3 opener at Casement Park.

McCann's three first-half points helped Antrim lead 0-6 to 0-5 at half-time.

However, Sligo moved into a 0-10 to 0-7 lead helped by scores from Mark Brehony, Adrian Marron and Colm Magee.

But scores from Kevin Brady, Sean Finch and the Brian Neeson helped Antrim level and while Sligo led again, the Saffrons produced a big finish.

McCann struck his winning point in the fifth minute of injury-time from the ground to delight the vocal home crowd.

Conor Murray and Paddy Cunningham were also among the Antrim scorers.
