Westmeath 1-11, Kilkenny 0-12
Kilkenny have been knocked out of the Leinster U21 hurling championship at this stage for the first time in a long time by a spirited Westmeath side.
The cats will rue a missed penalty five minutes into extra time which was added on due to a head injury of a Westmeath player.
Westmeath shot out of the blocks and led Kilkenny for long spells going in at half time a point ahead 0-09 to 0-08.
Warren Casserly hit the back of the net for Westmeath early in the second half which spurred the lake county on and they went on to win the game 1-11 to 0-12.
They play the winners of Dublin and Wexford on June 15th.
Kilkenny manager Eddie Brennan paid tribute to Westmeath after the game.
