Wexford maintained their good start to the All-Ireland senior camogie championship, and gained some measure of revenge for their defeat in the league final in the process, by defeating Cork 0-14 to 0-9 in their second round tie at Bellefield. The champions built their success on an unyielding defensive unit and that was critical in a game in which both sides largely cancelled themselves out.
Wexford led by four points at the break, with Ursula Jacob, Una Leacy and Kate Kelly capitalising on the outstanding work of Catherine O’Loughlin and Mary Leacy to find the target. Jenny O’Leary and Orla Cotter were on the mark for Cork and they were still in with a chance with ten minutes remaining. But Katrina Mackey was denied a certain goal by Wexford custodian Mags D’Arcy, and points from Una Leacy and Jacob – who finished with eight – confirmed the result.
