Last night’s Leinster minor football championship clash between Meath and Wexford saw a whopping 13 minutes of injury-time played at Pairc Tailteann.
The Royals ran out comfortable 6-13 to 0-7 winners after the game had been held up by a second-half injury to Wexford corner-back Leigh Newport.
The defender was eventually withdrawn after Wexford’s medical team had taken every precaution and it in the 13 minutes that were added on the hosts added 2-3 to their tally to ensure a second win in as many weeks.
There has been a delay here due to an injury to Leigh Newport. Medical people taking every precaution. Leigh is in good spirits and hopefully it is just bruising.— Wexford GAA (@OfficialWexGAA) May 15, 2019
Meath have added to their lead substantially and it is now 4-10 to 0-06 points in their favour as we entere injury time. Apologies for lack of updates as Leigh was the priority.— Wexford GAA (@OfficialWexGAA) May 15, 2019
Meanwhile, Offaly minors paid the penalty for their missed opportunities against Dublin in Tullamore.
The home side missed two penalties and it proved crucial as the Dubs made their first-half goals from Robbie Bolger and Fionn Murray count in a 2-13 to 0-13 victory – their third on the bounce.Tweet
