Wexford went down to a lively Clare side in Ferns today in the Irish Daily Star Division 1 League.
The first half saw the home side take the lead early on and maintain it with an energetic style of hurling. There was plenty of quick ball into the forwards and some sound defending. Wexford should probably have put more scores up in the first half hour but lead at half time by 9 points to Clare’s 6. Wexford scores were by L Bolger 0-3, Shelley Kehoe 0-3, C Fox 0-1 and J Dillon 0-1, J Quigley 0-1 while Clare’s six points came through C Morey 0-4, K Lynch 0-1, and A Malone 0-1.
The second half saw Clare assert themselves confidently and out scored Wexford by 12 scores to 4 as they dominated proceedings. Clare struck for their goal 10 minutes into the second half to draw level and never looked back. Laura Brennan made two great saves to deny the banner two further majors.
