The visitors took an early lead after seven minutes when a well-struck corner kick from Ben Ryan was powerfully headed past Ramblers goalkeeper Kevin McCarthy by Wexford defender Gareth McCurtin.
But Dave Hill’s young side were back on level terms on 25 minutes. A good pass from Martin Deady set up Jordan O’Leary who thumped the ball past former Cobh goalkeeper Packie Holden from 12 yards.
The Airtricity First Division team stuck the front right on the half time whistle in controversial circumstances. Centre-forward Danny Furlong seemed to be well offside as he tucked home the ball from close range.
The Leinster side, who are managed by Noel O’Connor and Independent TD Mick Wallace, stretched their advantage in the 55th minute. Striker Dave Grincell sent his shot to the Cobh net from the edge of the penalty area.
Both sides finished with 10 men when Ramblers Shane Spillane and the visitors Grincell were sent off following a dust-up on the halfway line.
