Controversy as Wexford denied goal when penalty bounces off back stanchion

The umpire’s missed a sitter there.

WEXFORD WERE DENIED a goal in the first half of this afternoon’s Senior Hurling Championship qualifier clash with Offaly, despite goalkeeper Mark Fanning smashing an excellent penalty into the corner.

Fanning’s 23rd minute effort beat his opposite number, but crashed off the goal’s stanchion and back into play allowing Offaly to clear their lines as the officials adjudged the ball to have hit the post.

The penalty made the difference at half-time as Offaly led by two points, 0 – 9 to 0 -7, but Wexford put any disappointment behind them immediately after the restart and ran out 1 – 21 to 1 – 13 winners.
