Wexford Minors Miss out on a Leinster Minor Hurling Final Spot Despite a late 2nd Half rally

Despite a great late rally from Wexford in the 2nd half with the Dubs leading 1-9 to 0-20 with a 11 minutes left to play and Wexford raising the last 5 white flags to bring 3 between them, Dublin had done enough in the opening half to prevent a positive result for Wexford

Ross Banville, who scored 11 frees, and goal scorer Jack Cullen were excellent for Wexford

The whistle-happy nature of the game suited Banville and Dublin’s Sean Currie, the free-takers for the respective sides. Banville’s dead balls accounted for all but one of Wexford’s six points in the opening half, while Currie scored 0-7, including five frees.

Dublin led Wexford by 0-10 to 0-6 at the interval and would have been further in front but for eight wides

Dublin now face Kilkenny who hammered home a 30 point victory against Laois 6-21 to 0-9 in this year’s Leinster Minor Final

Scorers for Wexford: Ross Banville 0-11 (0-11f), Jack Cullen 1-1, Charlie McGuckin 0-2.
