Wicklow 3-12

Offaly 0-17

WICKLOW GOT THEIR championship campaign back on track with a four-point win over Offaly in tonight’s All-Ireland qualifier tie in Aughrim.

A superior goalscoring ability proved crucial for Wicklow as they bounced back from last month’s Leinster championship defeat to Laois on home soil.

Wicklow enjoyed a 1-8 to 0-9 lead at the interval with Niall McNamee on fire for Offaly up front while Leighton Glynn caught the eye for Harry Murphy’s side.

Seanie Furlong had grabbed the crucial first-half goal for Wicklow and he added a second one after the break to put them into a 2-10 to 0-11 lead.

Offaly kept in touch to trail by 2-12 to 0-15 approaching full-time before Darren Hayden pounced for the vital third goal that helped Wicklow triumph and advance to the next stage of the qualifiers.
