Limerick 2-20 Wexford 0-15
Limerick secured their spot in the Hurling League Division 1 Group A semi-final with an 11-point win over Wexford.

Limerick’s doubled their goals tally for the league, with Kyle Hayes and Aaron Gillane each raising a green flag.

Patrickswell’s man Gillane ended the game with 1-5 in his first start of the year, while Limerick welcomed the return of captain Declan Hannon and a first start for Mike Casey in 2023.

Wexford made fewer changes to their team than Limerick, but five of their seven changes were enforced due to injuries to key players.

Limerick’s defenders outscored their forwards in the first half, with a 1-4 contribution arriving inside the opening ten minutes — including Hayes’ goal after a powerful run.

For their part, Wexford struggled to score in the first half, with only one of their efforts coming from play.

Limerick dominated the second half, and disaster struck for the Models in the 39th minute when Mark Fanning fumbled a dropping Cathal O’Neill shot that bounced off Gillane and into the net.

Limerick’s defenders continued to make significant contributions, with Casey becoming the fourth Treaty defender to find the mark after gathering a Nickie Quaid puckout.

Lee Chin was the main threat for the visitors, scoring or assisting in every Wexford score until Jack O’Connor’s 69th-minute point.

However, Chin missed nine scoring opportunities, including five from play and four from placed balls.

Limerick’s win over Wexford sets up a semi-final against Tipperary, with their impressive performance giving them confidence heading into the knockout phase.
