CAPTAIN ADRIAN MULLEN hit 1-9 as Kilkenny booked their place in the Electric Ireland Leinster minor hurling semi-finals today.

Kilkenny ran out 1-20 to 0-11 winners over Wexford in Nowlan Park in a game where they were in front 0-10 to 0-6 at the break.

Ballyhale Shamrocks player Mullen was the scoring star while Jack Kelly, Niall Brassil and Eoin O’Shea also chipped in with important points for the Cats.

Ross Banville bagged 0-8 for a Wexford team who now face a quarter-final tie at the end of April.

An early goal by Kevin Desmond helped Dublin claim a 1-11 to 1-8 victory over Laois in Parnell Park as they booked a semi-final berth.

Laois fought back to go in front 1-6 to 1-5 at the break with Oisin Bennett netting. A Bennett point put Laois ahead 1-8 to 1-7 with nine minutes left but three points by Sean Currie and one from Jason Byrne saw Dublin run out victors.

There were also successes today for Offaly and Meath as they qualified for the quarter-finals.
