Five goals saw Wexford past Tipperary in an entertaining encounter. The win puts Wexford in second place with the second round of the championship to come. Tipperary played some nice hurling, but the final touch let them down. Plenty of ball made it into the forward line, but the yield was low as the Wexford back line mopped up well. Wexford on the other hand tallied three goals inside the first 15 minutes of the second half carry them to the win.
