Wexford cruise to 27-point victory, Dublin make it three wins from three

Darragh Egan’s outfit hit 6-21 past Laois to secure their first win of the Leinster championship.

WEXFORD SECURED THEIR first victory of the Leinster championship with a 27-point hammering of Laois in Portlaoise. It finished 6-21 to 0-12.  

Darragh Egan’s outfit rattled home five second-half goals while Laois could only muster three points from play. Mark Fanning scored two penalties while Rory O’Connor, Conor McDonald and Diarmuid O’Keeffe all scored goals. 

A tough task became even harder for the home side when Fiachra Fennell was sent off midway through the second half. Wexford led by 11 at the time but went on to enjoy a rampant final stretch. Overall they only hit seven wides in total and hit 4-15 from play.

Next up is a blockbuster as Mattie Kenny’s outfit welcome Kilkenny to Parnell Park in two weeks’ time.
