Comerford gets best of wind in Laois victory
CIARAN Comerford scored 1-7 in the opening half as Laois made full use of wind advantage in their Leinster MHC quarter-final clash in O’Moore Park to beat Meath 1-19 to 1-14.
The home side led 1-16 to 0-5 at the break, Comerford’s goal in the 12th minute a wonderful effort after he won Cathal Dunne’s puckout.
Meath came storming back in the second half and Brian Dowling’s goal, as well as points from Mickey Mullen and Adam Murphy, had them within six as the game entered the last 10 minutes.
But a couple of Oisin Bennett frees helped Laois see it out and set up a semi-final clash with Kilkenny.
