Cork fight back in second-half to see off Wexford and seal league semi-final with Dublin

JBM’s side had their work cut out to defeat Liam Dunne’s team.

Cork 0-18
Wexford 0-14

A LEAGUE SEMI-final meeting with Dublin beckons for the Cork hurlers after they produced a much-improved second-half display to win today’s league quarter-final at home to Wexford.

The Rebels were overwhelmed in the opening half by the Model County. Wexford were backed by the wind and used that to their advantage to fashion a 0-13 to 0-7 interval lead.

But in the second-half Cork dominated the exchanges with Wexford only raising a single white flag after the interval.

In contrast Cork’s shooting was much improved with Patrick Horgan pointing the way and they claimed a four-point success to ensure they will face Dublin, managed by ex-Cork coach Ger Cunningham at the last four stage on 19 April.

Scorers for Cork: Patrick Horgan 0-10 (0-6f, 0-1 ’65), Conor Lehane 0-3, Seamus Harnedy 0-2, Daniel Kearney, Rob O’Shea, Paudie O’Sullivan 0-1 each.

Scorers for Wexford: Ian Byrne 0-4 (0-3f), Conor McDonald 0-3, Jack Guiney 0-2 (0-1f), Garreth Sinnott, David Redmond, Daithi Waters, Diarmuid O’Keeffe, Liam Óg McGovern 0-1 each.
