Wexford Hurlers stormed into a 0-7 to 0-0 lead inside the first 17 minutes as the forward line stamped their mark early in an another action packed game for Wexford within the last 7 day’s thanks to Paudie Foley, Goalkeeper Mark Fanning with three long-range frees and Rapparees star Kevin Foley and On target Lee Chin with 2 frees.
All Ireland Finalists Waterford stepped up a gear in the 2nd half with 4 unanswered points from Tadhg De Burca, Pauric Mahony, Jamie Barrron and Tommy Ryan. This was short lived when up steps Davidstown Courtnacuddy man David Dunne rattled the net with the first of his 2nd goals on the 44th minute that the highest paid Premiership League player Alexis Sanchez would be proud of and put our Wexford side 1-13 to 10 ahead. After a On-form Lee Chin stuck over a further 4 points from frees and one from play from Ferns St Aidans Man Paul Morris finding the Black spot also then David Dunne hits the net with his second Goal with 8 minutes remaining which left Waterford on the back foot to the final whistle and an important Ist round and a huge confidence building win with a solid and high intensity performance from Wexford
