The Wexford Kennedy Cup squad travelled to Donegal on Friday…
They played Donegal in the plate semi-final on Saturday morning. The game took place on Donegal turf, at Curragh Athletic FC’s grounds in Killygordon.
Wexford now set their sights on the final after defeating Donegal today after extra-time.
The sides could not be separated at the full-time whistle, but Wexford scored early on in the extra-time period, and they held out to secure an impressive away victory.
