Collins fires DIT winner

DIT 1-15 Wexford 1-11

PJ Banville gave Wexford a 0-4 to 0-2 lead after 17 minutes, with Jason Doherty on target for DIT. Two further Doherty points had the sides level after 20 minutes but then Banville stepped up and rattled off 1-1 to hand Wexford a 1-7 to 0-5 interval lead.

With Mayo star Aidan O’Shea beginning to impact on the midfield exchanges, DIT took control on the resumption and seven unanswered points had the visitors leading 0-12 to 1-8 by the 50th minute.

DIT were then reduced to 14 men with the dismissal of Colin Walsh but they bounced back superbly, with Collins converting a penalty.

After Adrian Flynn and Conor Walsh had exchanged points, Wexford finished with a neat point from Banville, but it was too late.
