Roscommon’s U-20 hurlers were out of luck at breezy Croke Park on Saturday when they lost out to Down in the Eirgrid All-Ireland B final by 0-20 to 0-11.

With Sean Canning excellent, Kevin Sammon’s men were in touch at half-time and were just one point in arrears, 0-8 to 0-7. Indeed the sides were level at 0-10 apiece after 34 minutes but Down upped the ante after that and outscored Roscommon by 0-10 to 0-1 for the rest of the game to run out the easy winners.
