REIGNING LEINSTER CHAMPIONS Oulart-The-Ballagh cruised past St Rynagh’s and into the provincial semi-final today.
They did so without a number of key players, with Keith Rossiter and Nicky Kirwan ruled out through injury, while they lost Eoin Moore due to concussion in the first-half.
Veteran Paul Roche compounded matters by picking up a straight red card on 32 minutes.
Despite all that, Oulart were comfortable throughout, running away as 10-point winners. After 18 minutes they were in front by 1-4 to 0-2 thanks a goal from minor star Murtha Doyle.
The Wexford kingpins led by nine at half-time and a late goal from Martin Og Storey wrapped up the 2-13 to 0-9 victory.
St Mullins joined Oulart in the last four after their 2-14 to 1-11 win over Raharney.
