Cian Byrne’s model show has the last word for Wexford

Cian Byrne’s 0-10 record inspired Wexford to a decider between Leinster U-20HC and Kilkenny with that single-point victory at Wexford Park yesterday afternoon.

yrne’s 100 percent record from Frees (0-7 overall) punishes any slip-up in the visitors’ defence.

James O’Brien scored first blood for Dublin with a point within two minutes before Byrne followed with two quick-fire points (a free and a ’65) to put his side ahead.

Byrne continued to fire for points, while points from Cian Ó Cathasaigh and Dara Purcell kept Dublin in contention as the home side led 7-0, 6-0 at the break.

Wexford enjoyed the ideal start in the resumption as Shamey O’Hagan broke into defense and selected full striker Jack Redmond who found the net to seal a 1-8 to 0-6 lead.

Dublin fought back through Brendan Scanlon, who found the net from close range to reduce the deficit to 8-1 from 10-1.

But Wexford, with both Cian Molloy and Kyle Scallan outstanding in defence, held firm in the closing minutes to deny Dublin the opportunity to even take the game into overtime.
