CHRISTY RING CUP GROUP 2A: WICKLOW 1-18 WESTMEATH 1-15
Wicklow came good in the second half at Arklow as they surprised defending Christy Ring Cup champions Westmeath.
The hosts led by 1-09 to 0-09 at half-time and kept up the momentum in the second half to hold out for the win.
A goal from Portumna's Leo Smith, 26 minutes into the second half, gave Westmeath some hope but it was a poor first-half display which cost Johnny Dooley's side.
Impressive performances from corner forward Don Hyland, Eamon Furlong at full-forward and Jonathan O'Neill in midfield helped Wicklow take the spoils.
