It is believed that Casement’s Portglenone have contacted Antrim CCC seeking clarity about the way Sunday’s Antrim Senior Football semi-final against Aghagallon was finished. Ten minutes each way of extra time was played after the teams finished level on 0-12 to 0-12 at the end of normal time. The sides could not be separated at the end of extra time as both sides added a further 1-5 to their totals, so after 80 minutes play, plus injury time they were still deadlocked on 1-17 apiece.
The teams were instructed that another period of extra time would be needed, five minutes each way this time, with penalties at the end of it should the teams still be deadlocked. As it turned out penalties were not needed as Aghagallon got the better of things in those extra ten minutes with an Adam Loughran point in the second period sending them through to the final.
Portglenone believe that the second period of extra time should not have been played and the game should have gone straight to penalties and have contacted the CCC seeking clarity on the matter. They also made Aghagallon GAC aware of this. It is believed the CCC will discuss the matter at a meeting today
