The Pettit’s Wexford Senior hurling final takes place in Chadwicks Werd Park this Sunday and the excitement is building..
The two teams that will compete in this year’s Wexford Senior Hurling Final are St Annes and the Rapparees.
The Rapparees defeated the tipped Glynn-Barntown, while fourteen men St Annes always looked the better side against reigning champions and this year’s favourites, Shelmaliers.
A penalty, slotted away by Kevin Foley, was enough to turn the game around for the Rapparees, who were once five points down in the game today. The Rapps are yet to be beaten in the Wexford Senior hurling championship this year.
Meanwhile, in the other semi-final, Wexford hurling stars Liam Óg McGovern and Dee O’Keeffe led their team to 2-19 to 1-16 victory, despite the best efforts of the Shels.
Over the previous five days, we ran a poll on our Twitter page, asking our followers to vote who they believe will be crowned champions. The results are now in:
Our followers predictions are in line with the bookies’ odds, as the major bookmakers have St Annes to win as slight favourites, priced at 4/6, with the Rapps priced at 6/4.
Despite this, it must be noted that our followers, like a lot of people, predicted the wrong teams to win last week in the semi-finals.
Really, only time will tell, but we are excited to say the least.
