MEATH POWERED INTO the final of the Leinster minor football championship with an emphatic victory over Laois at O’Moore Park this afternoon, the Royal county scoring five goals in a 25-point win.

Luke Kelly set Meath on their way with less than 40 seconds on the clock and the full-forward added his second goal shortly after, slotting home after Matthew Costello’s initial effort came off the bar.

The visitors were in rampant form as Bryan McCormack finished for Meath’s third before the break and David Bell completed the rout in the second half with a double.

Joe Treanor’s side advance to a first Leinster MFC final in 10 years as they bid to win their 11th title at this grade, with Wicklow or Kildare their opposition in next Saturday’s decider.

Who’ll fall at the last Super 8s hurdle, can Kildare back-up Newbridge and will Cork show up?
