Offaly full-forward Cian Johnson hit 1-7 from play as the Faithful County overpowered Carlow in this round one Leinster U-20 Football Championship tie at Netwatch Cullen Park.

After Andrew Kehoe had pointed Carlow into an early lead, Offaly hit back immediately, with Shane O'Brien netting. The visitors went on to pick off some fine points as they took an interval lead of 1-10 to 0-6.

Offaly were masters of the third quarter, their domination reflected in six unanswered points, shared equally between Johnson and Cian Farrell.

After Conor Crowley had converted a late Carlow penalty, Offaly swept upfield for their impressive full-forward Farrell to set up Johnson, who scored his side's second goal to put the seal on an impressive win.

Offaly 2-19 Carlow 1-10

Despite a rally by Wexford in the closing quarter, Westmeath proved too strong for the Slaneysiders in Mullingar.

Full-forward Sean Pettit was the star of the first half scoring 1-6 for the wind-assisted home team, including the opening four points of the match and a great goal on the half-hour mark.

Darragh Lyons’ 26th-minute penalty, awarded following a foot block, kept Wexford somewhat in touch but they still trailed by 1-10 to 1-2 at half-time.

A little over a minute after the resumption, James Maxwell rounded off a flowing Westmeath move with a goal and they went on to lead by 10 points after 35 minutes.

However, the Lake men only added one more point in the time remaining as the visitors chipped into the lead.

Six minutes of added time was played but Wexford were unable to manufacture an equalising goal.

Scorers – Westmeath: S Pettit 1-7 (0-4fs); J Maxwell 1-0; J Tumulty 0-3 (3fs); B Cox, D Reid 0-1 each.  Wexford: D Lyons 1-1 (1-0pen, 0-1f); S Nolan (1f), J Meyler (2fs) 0-4 each; I Meegan 0-2 (1f, 145); G Sheehan 0-1.
