The Christy Ring Cup Final Replay Was A Game Of EPIC Proportions

The Christy Ring Cup Final Replay Was A Game Of EPIC Proportions
By PJ Browne

Three weeks after the initial Christy Ring Cup final - which was shrouded in controversy after the referee made an error in the recording of the score - today saw the replay of the game between Meath and Antrim.

And well-worth the wait it was - especially for Meath fans.

After that first game, Meath fans thought they had won their first ever title in inter-county hurling's second tier competition - it turned out the game had actually been a draw rather than a one-point win for the Royal County.

Three weeks later, after extra-time, Meath emerged victorious - this time legitimately - by a one-point margin.

It was an epic game. One which saw a total of nine goals and 38 points.

In regular time, it looked like Meath had done enough to claim victory. That was until a Darren Hamill goal in the fifth minute of injury time.

In extra-time, Antrim led by two with six minutes remaining. However, Meath would hit three unanswered points - the winner from Steven Clynch in the 93rd minute of the game.
