Antrim v Wexford - Allianz Hurling League Division 1B Round 1

Big day report from Innovate Wexford Park

Mixed fortunes in Innovate Wexford Park today but the Yellowbellies did their county proud all around.

The football team ran out winners against Carlow in the final round of the Allianz league Div 4 game on a score of 2-17 to 2-06

The hurlers however lost out to neighbours Waterford in the Allianz League quarter final but not as had been predicted by the “Experts” in the build up to the game.
Wexford got off to a great start and had been 8-2 up at one stage.
Waterford, the reigning league champions , fought back and were only a point down at half time.
The second half was a battle royal. Waterford seemed to have got the game in the bag when 4 points ahead but Conor MacDonald goaled to leave it a one point game and Harry Kehoe put Wexford level from the next play.
However Wexford conceded some frees well out the field in injury time but Maurice Shanahan pointed to put Waterford through to the league semi final.
Final score Wexford 1-13 Waterford 0-17.
It was much improved performance by Wexford and gives a base for working on for the championship.
In the semi finals Kilkenny will play Clare and Waterford will play Limerick. so two of the Div 1B teams get through while Wexford got very close indeed.
