Dubs place one foot into the knockout stages with defeat of Wexford

Dublin came out on top of a crunch tie with Wexford at Parnell Park to place one foot in the quarter-finals of the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland senior Camogie Championship.

Gerry McQuaid’s crew had snatched the Very Division 1B title from the grasp of the Yellowbellies thanks to an injury time goal by Grace O’Shea but they made sure far earlier on this occasion, though their ability to record three-pointers remained crucial in the 4-13 to 1-10 triumph.

Wexford felt the loss of injured skipper, Ciara O’Connor keenly, though they had the dream start when Chloe Foxed scored a goal after just 67 seconds. Points from Aoife Gannon and Aisling Maher settled Dublin and Elyse Jamieson billowed the Wexford net in the 13th minute to give them the lead.

Emma Flanagan grabbed a goal just before the break and that was probably the crucial score, as the hosts began to impose themselves on proceedings.

They led by 2-7 to 1-5 at half-time and extended that with goals by League final hero O’Shea and Aisling Gannon, to open up a 15-point advantage at the three-quarter mark, with Wexford yet to score in the second half.

Colin Sunderland’s side showed plenty of pride from that juncture, points coming from Foxe, Anais Curran, Joanne Dillon and the outstanding Sarah O’Connor but Dublin had done more than enough to see out the game.
