LIVE BLOG: Follow all the action as the Laois U-20 hurlers face Antrim in Round 2 of Leinster championship

Pairc Tailteann in Navan

Ollie Hally’s Laois U-20 hurlers are back in action this evening as they aim to take a place in the Leinster quarter final.

Navan is the destination for a clash with Antrim and Laois are the bookies favourites for the encounter which throws in at 7.30pm.

But if the events of seven days are anything to go by, this group of players are anything but predictable.

Laois were 15 points ahead of Westmeath at the start of the second half but threw it all away and needed a last gasp point to force extra time.

When the game went there, they conceded an early goal and looked in real trouble again only to stage a remarkable comeback and win the game.

James Duggan top scored with 3-5 while Mossy Keyes showed nerves of steel at crucial times as Laois advanced by six points in the end.

Antrim reached this stage after a commanding 3-17 to 1-13 win over Down last week.

Rian McMullan top scored with 1-6 while Daire Murphy knocked over five frees so Laois will have to be wary of their threat.

Should Laois advance, they will play either Kilkenny or Offaly in the quarter finals next week.
