Kilkenny book Leinster final date with Galway


Kilkenny secured a place in the Leinster Senior Hurling final with champions Galway on 1 July after a single-point 0-22 1-18 victory against Wexford at Nowlan Park.

A sluggish first-half saw the Cats go nearly 20 minutes without a score and rack up ten wides as they trailed 1-11 0-7 at the interval.

The Model County were already 0-10 0-5 ahead with six unanswered points when Paul Morris netted in 28 minutes after a David Dunne assist to put them in driving seat in what was in effect an inter-provincial semi-final clash.

But Brian Cody rung the changes at the break bringing on the impressive Richie Leahy and John Donnelly who helped TJ Reid [0-11] spark Cats into life.

Kilkenny continually chipped away at what was a nine point deficit at one point. The visitors, who were playing their fourth Leinster championship match in as many weeks, were noticably tiring and despite dogged resistance from Paudie Foley a late score from John Donnelly proved crucial to the outcome.

Having already booked their place in the final, Galway rested some of their big names but still chalked up a fourth successive championship win with a narrow 0-26 2-19 victory over Dublin at Pearse Stadium.

Substitute Paul Winters claimed two second-half goals as Pat Gilroy's troops threatened a shock, but Jason Flynn was the Tribesmen hero with 11 points, including a late free to deny Dubs a draw.
