Kilkenny secured the BGE Leinster U-20 title with a 1-17 to 0-18 win over Wexford in Wexford Park on Wednesday night. There was little beween both teams in the opening period with Kilkenny heading to the dressing room with a two point lead at half time. On the restart Kilkenny got that lead to three points at various stages throughout the half but found it difficult to extend it much further. Wexford kept the pressure on right up until the final whistle but it was to be Kilkenny's night and title.
Kilkenny now await the Munster runners up in the All-Ireland semi-final on the August Bank Holiday weekend, while Wexford must take on the Munster winners on the same weekend.
