Wexford outclassed Carlow in Netwatch Cullen Park, with 1-16 of the visitors’ total coming from play and shared among eight players.

Carlow were very poor, failing to score from play in the opening half, by which time they trailed 0-10 to 0-5.

Wexford, under the management of senior county boss Seamus McEnaney, were in control from the start.

They displayed fine teamwork and picked off a succession of fine points, with right full-forward Mikey Dwyer regularly catching the eye – the Fethard clubman finished with 1-2, while centre-forward Ian Carthy, with 0-4 from open play, was in top form.

The game’s only goal came from Dwyer on 46 minutes to put Wexford 1-15 to 0-7 ahead as they progressed with considerable ease to a provincial quarter-final against Offaly.
