-
Wexford have defeated Dublin by 0-13 to 1-07 in their Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship quarter-final at Cullen Park.
-
A blustery wind made conditions difficult for both sides in Carlow early on, but Wexford coped better initially.
-
-
-
Stacey Kehoe got them off the mark early on and then set up Katrina Parrock with a lovely flick for another score.
-
Una Sinnott profited from some good vision by player of the match Kate Kelly to open up a three-point gap.
-
Dublin had a goal disallowed for a square ball, but Ali Maguire opened their account from a close-range free.
-
But it was Wexford finding it easier to pick off scores as Kelly lofted three points on the way to a personal tally of 0-08, including one majestic effort from near the sideline on the 45-metre line to open up a 0-07 to 0-03 half-time lead.
-
Kelly extended the advantage by two but Dublin upped their intensity and it took two last-ditch interventions from Siona Nolan and Ciara Storey to deny them a goal.
-
Gradually, they began chipping away at the deficit, aided by two pointed frees from Aisling Maher.
-
Showing tremendous character, they kept pushing hard and when Alan Lagrue awarded a 20-metre free four minutes from time, the long-serving Louise O’Hara sent a rocket to the net to leave a point between the sides at 0-11 to 1-07.
-
However, Wexford showed all their experience and while Dublin had one opportunity to equalise from a free, it was Colm McGee’s crew who saw out the game with points from the ultra-reliable Kelly and skipper Shelley Kehoe.
