Wexford 1-10 Tipperary 0-11
Wexford pulled off another win against Tipperary in the final game of the senior hurling championship. With the win, Wexford draw level on points with Galway at the top of the table and had a chance of going straight into the final, but as it turned out Galway’s name was pulled out of the hat and Wexford will play a semi-final next Sunday against either Tipperary or Fr. Tom Burke’s. Having played most of the second half with 11 men, Wexford dug deep and fought hard to come out on top by two points in another battling victory.
