Dublin minor hurlers will face Wexford in the Electric Ireland Leinster MHC semi-final next Saturday following this weekend's provincial quarter-finals.

The Slaneysiders defeated Laois 4-17 to 1-16 in O'Moore Park on Saturday afternoon while Kildare overcame Offaly 1-23 to 1-20 after extra-time in St Conleth's Park, Newbridge to also book their semi-final berth.

The Lilywhites advance to now face Kilkenny who topped the Tier 1 round-robin group.

Dublin finished second after the Tier 1 group phase, edging out Wexford for an automatic semi-final slot on scoring difference.

The Dubs drew their group game with Wexford, 3-14 to 2-17, in round 3 of the Tier 1 games in Bellefield, Enniscorthy on Saturday, May 11.

Dublin led 3-14 to 0-14 entering the last ten minutes but the Slaneysiders hit 2-3 without reply to earn the draw.
