Wexford will face Dublin in a Leinster hurling semi-final after Liam Dunne's side easily brushed past a jaded Antrim outfit for a 13-point win
Goals were the order of the day for the Model as they raised five green flags in a 5-19 to 0-21 victory.
Wexford made the perfect start with Rory Jacob striking a goal in the opening minute and he had a second soon afterwards.
Chris O'Donnell saved his initial shot brilliantly but Jacob swept the rebound into the net.
Amazingly, Wexford had a third inside 12 minutes after Jack Guiney shot for goal from a 20-yard free and the block fell to Conor McDonald who raised a white flag.
Paul Shiels was knocking over a few frees but the Model men were in control.
The impressive Neil McManus popped over a few scores for a shell-shocked Antrim side to keep in the game but they trailed by seven after 20 minutes.
Both sides traded scores but Wexford led by 3-9 to 0-10 at the break.
Both sides exchanged scores after the break with the Saffrons failing to make any inroads into Wexford's lead.
A second goal for Conor McDonald and another for Liam Og McGovern put the game beyond doubt and Antrim went down to 14-men when Eoghan Campbell was dismissed with a straight red card.
It was plain sailing for the remainder of the game.
