A game we should have won, could have lost and were extremely lucky get a draw at the end. Midway in the second half we were in total control and when five points up missed three easy chances of going eight points up. Paul Ryan was unlucky not to get a goal after a pass from Liam Rushe. But then Wexford woke up again and started to run the ball starting with Diarmuid O’Keeffe who was now acting as a sweeper. They simply ran us ragged and were excellent in their support play. They scored two wonderful goals even though poor first touches by our defenders made it easier for them.In fairness we never gave up and deserved a draw. Many lessons can be learned from the game and our players need to be faster to see what tactics their opponents are employing. It took about ten minutes for our players to go man to man and thereby prevent the short puck out. When we did we got on top. We had many good performances but Eoghan O’Donnell was supreme in all he did. We now have a two week break before we travel to play Carlow on Sunday June 2nd. This championship will go down to the wire and score difference could decide who is first, second and third. Carlow are no longer a pushover and our last game is at home to Galway on Saturday June 15th. This game will be a sell out so get your tickets in good time. Some great hurling to look forward to.
