OYLEGATE-GLENBRIEN’S bid to become the first-ever Wexford winners of the AIB Leinster Club Intermediate hurling championship ended in bitter disappointment in sunny St. Conleth’s Park in Newbridge on Sunday, but victory went where it belonged as a superior Naas side fully deserved this special success.

While the M.J. Reck-managed boys in blue did well to erase a six-point first-half deficit, and drew level early in the second period, the concession of a third goal to their rivals in the 42nd minute ensured a repeat of the outcome in 2012 when they were denied the title by Clara of Kilkenny.
