Hinphey puts boot into Wicklow

DerrY 2-19 Wicklow 0-10

Published 25/02/2013 | 04:00

DERRY scored an unexpectedly easy win over the Garden County at Celtic Park, with most of the damage being done in the first half when they amassed an 18-point lead.

Wicklow went ahead when Jonathan O'Neill scored the first of his seven points. The visitors would add just another point before the break as Derry built a commanding 2-14 to 0-2 half-time advantage, Derry captain Ruairi Convery scoring the first of his five first-half points to level at 0-1 each.

Niall Ferris cracked home the first goal in the 13th minute to make it 1-5 to 0-2, while Kevin Hinphey kicked the sliotar to the net 10 minutes from half-time to make it 2-9 to 0-2.

Wicklow made three changes at the break and showed more appetite for the battle, but the Oak Leaf county retained control of the match.
