Kildare put up a bold show in their first appearance in the U-21 A championship but in the end, they had no answer to the magnificence of Conor McDonald.

Wexford 0-23 Kildare 0-14

The hosts used a sweeper in a bid to nullify the Naomh Éanna man but it proved in vain, as he scored 12 points. Most significantly, eight of those arrived in the first half when last year's All-Ireland B champs were proving more than a match for Wexford.

Kildare led twice in the opening quarter thanks to points from the excellent Gerry Keegan and Liam Power as McDonald racked up four early points. The teams were level six times in the opening half but three points from McDonald, who finished the half with eight, gave Wexford a 0-9 to 0-7 interval lead. Wexford upped the ante after that, Keegan's 54th-minute penalty saved by Oliver O'Leary.

Scorers - Wexford: C McDonald 0-12(4f); K Foley, S Murphy, J O'Connor, P Sutton 0-2 each; S Donohoe, J Cash, C Dunbar 0-1 each. Kildare: G Keegan 0-9 (8fs); P Moran 0-2; G Johnson, R Casey, L Power 0-1 each.

Wexford - O O'Leary; S Donohoe, L Ryan, E Conroy; A Kenny, J White, J O'Connor; C Devitt, T French; P Foley, P Sutton, S Kelly; S Murphy, C McDonald, K Foley. Subs: G Bailey for French (37), L McDonald for White (41), C Dunbar for Kelly (41), J Cash for Kenny (47), D Pepper for Donohoe (55), B Kelly for P Foley (56).

Kildare - P McKenna; P Kelly, D Flaherty, C Gordan; G Johnson, K Murphy, D Keane; E Dempsey, S O'Flynn; B Byrne, R Whelan, G Keegan; L Power, N Kenny, R Casey. Subs: C Egan for Whelan (h-t), D Boyle for Kelly (34), S Ryan for Johnson (52), P Moran for Byrne (52), C Martin for Power (59)
