Kilkenny are through to another Leinster minor hurling championship final after turning the tables on Wexford in the second half of their clash on Sunday afternoon.
In our second live game of the weekend, the Cats turned in a 12-point swing having trailed by six at the break to book a final berth against Offaly on 3 January.
The two sides met in the final stages of the competition last year but it would be Kilkenny to have the last laugh this time out.
Racing into an early lead through four points from Billy Drennan, Wexford found their groove in the first half with the wind at their backs, at one point firing off seven points without reply.
If the first half belonged to Wexford, the second half was one-way traffic for Kilkenny with the Cats notching up 14 points, Drennan laser-focused with his accuracy from dead balls.
The Galmoy youngster finished the day with 14 points of his own (9 from frees) with Dicksboro’s Timmy Clifford and Harry Shine chipping in with points of their own along with Denis Walsh (Dunnamaggin, 0-02), Gearoid Dunne (Tullaroan, 0-02), Killian Doyle (Emeralds, 0-02) and Cathal Beirne (Glenmore, 0-01).
Final score in Wexford Park, Kilkenny 0-23, Wexford 1-14.
The venue for this season’s Leinster final has yet to be decided but the game will take place on Sunday 3 January.
