Ulster Senior Hurling Championship Semi Final:
Down 3-28 Derry 5-22 (AET)
100 minutes of action failed to separate Derry and Down in this pulsating Ulster Senior Hurling Championship Semi Final played at St Tiernachs Park Clones.
With the sides level after the 70 minutes, an agreement was reached to play extra time – then an additional period of extra time – but the sides still remained level so a replay will now have to take place next Saturday 5th July.
Meanwhile, in the Ulster Minor Hurling Championship semi finals which were played as curtain raisers, Antrim defeated Down by 1-15 to 0-10 while Derry accounted for Armagh on a scoreline of 3-11 to 2-11.
