Oulart-The Ballagh were 0-09 to 0-04 up at half time so they can’t have any real complaints having been outscored 1-13 to 0-06 in the second half. It’s a big disappointment for them as they were very focused on finally winning a Leinster title this year having never done so previously. By extension it’s also quite a disappointment for Wexford hurling generally given the number of county players on the Oulart side.
They weren’t tested at all in Wexford but it’s been a common theme in the past that they can be a little bit brittle if the pressure and intensity is raised to maximum levels. That’s what appeared to happen yesterday with Boden really stepping it up in the second half. But still a team like Oulart with the likes of Paul Roche, Darren Stamp, Keith Rossiter, Michael and Rory Jacob, Des Mythen and Stephen Doyle should have enough experience to press on and win a game like yesterday.
Fair play to Boden though and their two Wexford players - Mal Travers and Enda Kinsella. The latter could earn himself a call-up to the Wexford squad if he keeps progressing.
