Wexford Are The Walsh Cup Champions After Historic Occasion

Wexford’s winning streak over Kilkenny continues in the most bizarre circumstances. 

3 in a row – with 2 important games to come. Today though is about silverware – and the Walsh Cup is coming back to Wexford.

The game ended full-time on a scoreline of 1-21 apiece and 20 more minutes of extra-time still couldn’t separate the rivals. This meant that a free-competition from the 65 would be implemented to decide the winner.

The shoot-out was the first ever shoot-out in competitive hurling, following the first ever football one that occurred just last week.

Who scored in the free-competition? 

Paul Morris NO

Eoin Murphy YES

Lee Chin NO

Conor Martin YES

Conor McDonald YES

Lester Ryan NO

Jack Guiney YES

Alan Murphy NO

Mark Fanning YES

John Walsh NO

* The above attempts ensured Wexford won the tense shoot-out on a scoreline of 3-2.
