Meath emerged victorious over neighbours Westmeath today in the replay of their Leinster SFC quarter final in Portlaoise today. The match began quite evenly and for a while it seemed that it would be as tight and exciting as the first game. At half time Meath led by 3 points.

However after the break Meath upped the tempo and a mixture of Westmeath wides and a Dessie Dolan missed penalty saw Meath pull away to end the match 1-11 to 0-05 in front.
