Hurlers bounce back in style with win over Wexford

24 Mar 2013 |


Dublin bounced back from the disappointment of last weekend when they outclassed Wexford in this Allianz HL Division 1B clash at Wexford Park on Sunday.

Next weekend the Dubs face Carlow knowing a victory will see them contest the Division 1B final with the winner of that tie progressing to the NHL Division 1 semi-finals.

Dublin held the upperhand from the opening whistle but it took them a while to find their accuracy before David O’Callaghan hit 1-2 in a quick-fire scoring burst between the 11th and 14th minutes to propel Dublin to the front.

Joey Boland and Simon Lambert held sway at midfield with Boland getting on the scoresheet while further points from Kevin Byrne and David Treacy (two) had the wind-assisted Dublin 1-8 to 0-2 to the good by the 20th minute.

By the break the visitors were 2-12 to 0-4 clear after Conor McCormack raised a green flag.

Dublin did not relent in the second half and were never going to be caught with sub Eamon Dillon grabbing the third goal before the finish.
