By PJ Browne Updated

Dunloy won the Antrim SHC final at Ballycastle on Sunday afternoon, defeating reigning champions and All-Ireland semi-finalists Ruairí Óg Cushendall.

Dunloy emerged victorious on a scoreline of 3-16 to 2-15.

All three Dunloy goals were scored by Elliott brothers Nigel and Seaan.

In injury time at the end of the first half, Cushendall led by four points but their advantage was cut to the minimum when Nigel Elliott's strike found the net.

"I said to the boys before, 'We need a score' - it didn't matter what score it was," he told TG4 after the game.

"Thankfully, it was a goal. It gave us a bit of hope."

With under three minutes left in normal time in the second half, and Dunloy leading by a point, Seaan Elliot burst through on goal and fired a low shot to the Ruairí Óg net.

Two minutes later, Seaan Elliott - despite dropping the sliotar and having several Cushendall defenders for company - found the net again.

TG4 interviewed the out of breath and elated brothers after the game.

Make sure to listen out for the sound Seaan makes at the 1:48 mark.
