Offaly came through their final tier-two Leinster MHC game with nine points to spare over Antrim in Dowdallshill yesterday.

The Faithful County have topped the group and will now go on to play Laois in the quarter-final of the championship as the O'Moore men finished bottom of the tier one group stage.

Offaly didn't have it all their own way but did lead 1-11 to 0-5 at half-time with the goal coming from DJ McLoughlin.

Cathal Kiely once again top scored for the Offaly men with 1-9 but they did have Danny Flanagan dismissed on a harsh straight red card in the second half.

Ryan Hill hit 1-5 for Antrim with his goal coming from a penalty in the second half but they were always playing second fiddle to the Offaly men.

Scorers - Offaly: C Kiely 1-9 (0-7f); DJ McLoughlin 1-1; D Flanagan and A Walsh 0-2 each; E Gleeson, D Maher (65) and C Sampson 0-1 each. Antrim: R Hill 1-5 (1-0 pen, 0-5f); C Mohill 0-3 (3f); R McAleer 0-2; N O'Connor 0-1.

Leavy helps Dubs to slim success

Dublin 0-16 Wexford 1-10

Donal Leavy scored four points from midfield in helping Dublin to account for Wexford by three points in their Leinster MHC Tier 1 encounter at Parnell Park yesterday.

Wexford scored a consolation goal in injury time through AJ Redmond after the hosts had been reduced to 13 players.

Wexford gained the early upper hand. But, gradually, Dublin began to find their feet, with Leavy adding two more points to his tally and they took the lead by the end of the first quarter.

Dublin were 0-9 to 0-6 clear by the break. The second half proved wasteful by Dublin as their shooting deteriorated, but two points from Ciaran Foley kept Wexford at arm's length.

After Wexford's Thomas Murphy had been dismissed on 44 minutes, Dublin lost Adam Waddick three minutes later and finished two players down after a second booking for Ciaran Hogan.

Scorers - Dublin: D Leavy 0-4; S Fenton 0-3 (1f); C Foley, S Foran 0-2 each; C Hogan, A O'Neill ('65'), D Power, D McLoughney, A O'Toole 0-1 each. Wexford: AJ Redmond 1-4 (3f, 1 65); C Molloy (2f), J Kehoe (2f) 0-2 each; T Murphy, Z Firman 0-1 each.

Dublin - J Lambert; A Waddick, E Carney, F Murphy; C Hogan, A O'Neill, I Ó hEithir; D Leavy, D Power; D McLoughney, C Foley, C Murray; S Fenton, L Swan, A O'Toole. Subs: S Foran for Power (52), D Breslin for O'Toole (55), P Christie for Swan (57).

Wexford - D Hayes; F Roche, R Scallan, N Rowesome; E Doyle, D Codd, J Kirwan; C Molloy, D O'Neill; O Whitty, T Murphy, J Kehoe; R Lawlor, Z Firman, D Cantwell. Subs: AJ Redmond for O'Neill (h-t), P Whitty for O Whitty (45), P O'Connor for Kehoe (52), S Walsh for Kirwan (56).
