Wexford 'keeper Ivan Meegan landed this magical point from play against Dublin
Meegan was Wexford’s top scorer in defeat to Dublin, but his sole point from play was something special.

DUBLIN SAFELY BOOKED their passage into the EirGrid Leinster U20 Football Championship semi-finals with a strong second-half showing against an impressive Wexford, but they couldn’t do much about Ivan Meegan’s wonderscore in the first half.

The Fern St. Aidan’s goalkeeper scored a team-high 0-4 (three frees) in Wexford’s defeat, but his sole point from play was one to remember.

With Wexford leading 0-7 to 0-4, Meegan intervened to prevent a leveling goal before bursting from between his sticks with the ball. After a one-two as he departed his defence, he marauded past halfway before turning back outside and, with a quick glance towards David O’Hanlon’s goal down the other end and a swing of his nuclear left boot, landing this monster point from all of 50 yards.
