Wexford booked their place in their second Leinster SFAI Subway Plate Final of the season on Sunday when their U12's overcame the Midlands, eventually winning 4-2 on penalties.

Having played in the U15 Leinster final, which they lost to the Midlands on penalties, earlier in the year, the young Wexford players were hoping to avenge that loss.

And they did just that to set up a final with Drogheda, which should make for a very competitive tie

Played in Birr on Sunday, the opening period between Midlands and Wexford in the tie was a tight and tense affair as both teams settled in to what would be a very entertaining 0-0 draw.

Chances came and went, and both goalkeepers also played their part as the tempo increased and shots on goal grew more frequent.

However, neither team could break the deadlock, and so it went to penalties.

Daniel McGrath stood up to take the first spot-kick for the eventual winners and scored, and he was followed by Joe O’Leary, Shayne McDonald and Liam Kelly who all netted to send Wexford into the U12 Leinster SFAI Subway Final.

A special mention should also go to Wexford net-minder Cian Wilson who made two very impressive saves in the shootout.

Elsewhere, the Wexford U13 side are hoping to replicate the success of their U12 team when they face Carlow on Wednesday evening at 6:45pm in their Leinster SFAI Subway Plate semi final.

They will face Carlow in Bunclody, and the winners of that game will also play Drogheda in the final.

Finally, the much anticipated U13 Leinster SFAI Subway Championship Final between the DDSL and NDSL will take place on Wednesday evening at 7pm in Abbotstown.

The teams will be seeking to progress to the national semi-final stage, and with local rivalry and bragging rights at stake, it is sure to be a very entertaining clash.
