Limerick footballers suffer defeat in Wexford

The Limerick footballers lost their fourth successive game in the National League on Saturday falling to Wexford by a point in Innovate Park.

At half time Limerick were trailing 0-10 to 0-5 in windy conditions.

Wexford started brighter and had opened at 0-6 to 0-1 lead within 15 minutes with Peter Nash notching Limerick’s only score.

The sides would trade the next eight scores with Iain Corbett (2), Nash and Jamie Lee scoring for the away side as Wexford took a five point advantage into the break.

Billy Lee’s side would score three of the opening four points after the restart to reduce the deficit to three ten minutes into the second half.

Wexford would counter with three unanswered scores as they extended their lead to six with fifteen minutes of normal time to play.

That would prove to be Wexford’s final score with Cillian Fahy getting on the scoresheet in the 59th minute before a Sean McSweeney goal with ten minutes remaining reducing the gap to two.

McSweeney would point from a free in injury time but it was too little too late as Limerick failed to find the qualizer with Wexford winning out 0-14 to 1-10.

Limerick face Antrim at home in their final league game next Sunday.
