Wexford opened impressively, moving into a 1-4 to 0-1 lead as early as the fifth minute, the goal coming from full-forward James Breen.
Even at this early stage, Laois looked in real difficulty as they were been outhurled all over the pitch but they were given a brief respite when Neil Foyle pointed an eighth-minute free.
Wexford were sharp and aggressive in attack as Liam Óg McGovern cracked home a goal soon after.
It was going to take something impressive from Laois to bring them back into the game but all they had to offer was the accurate point-taking of centre-forward Foyle, whose efforts left nine points separating the sides, 3-4 to 0-4 after 13 minutes, the home side’s third goal coming courtesy of Pádraig Doran.
Laois were always playing catch-up as they allowed McGovern through for his second goal at the end of the opening quarter.
By half-time, the home side had raced into a 4-11 to 0-5 lead, and for Laois it was just damage limitation on the resumption.
The visitors tried to up their game on the changeover, responding with a Neil Foyle pointed free inside two minutes.
However, the Wexford dominance was to continue as they responded immediately with a Shane Tomkins goal, before going on to add further goals through Paul Morris and James Breen.
Laois’s Daniel Lalor reduced the deficit with a 48th minute goal, by which stage the home side led 7-14 to 1-7 as they cruised to victory, with Foyle’s second goal from a free proving a consolation score..
Wexford now await the winners of the Dublin-Offaly game in the final.
