Wexford into League Final

WEXFORD Camogie Team went top of Group Two of Division One of the National League defeating Cork 0-10 to 1-4 while also qualifying for the league final against either Tipperary or Kilkenny on April 25.

Their hard-fought win in blustery conditions means they acquired maximum points from all of their three games. The visitors, meanwhile, needed to beat Wexford to force a three-way play-off that would involve Galway, Cork and Wexford.

Wexford got down to business and opting to play with the advantage of the strong wind in the first half, wasted no time in getting into scoring mode. They led 0-8 to 1-1 at the break – notable was the display of both defences. Kate Kelly was in good form at midfield scoring five points, where she made a formidable partnership with Caroline Murphy.

Gemma O’Connor netted the Cork goal on 25 minutes, but this failed to inspire Cork to greater things. They had points from Orla Cotter, Eimear O’Sullivan and Rachel Moloney, but Wexford were staunch and resolute and held out for a merited win. Michelle Hearne entered the play with ten minutes to go her first game since getting injured in the Galway game, Mag Kelly was also on the panel.
