The combined Wexford Colleges got the Top Oil Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior hurling 'A' championship off to a sensational start with a 12-17 to 1-4 demolition of the Westmeath Colleges in the Halo Tiles and Bathrooms Wexford Centre of Excellence in Ferns on Saturday.

It was exhibition stuff from the home side in a complete rout, although they are highly unlikely to have it as easy in the second round next weekend, against opponents yet to be decided.

Westmeath may have bettered Jack Reck's early point with a second-minute goal from Mikey Mullen, but Wexford ran riot once Chris Turner shot them into the lead with the first of their twelve majors.

It was game over long before half-time when they led by 5-8 to 1-2, with centre-forward Liam Pender completing his hat-trick and Turner adding a second.

Turner needed less than 30 seconds on the re-start before rattling the net again, and the goals continued to flow as Reece Broaders (two), Turner plus three substitutes - Conor Nolan, Cian Fitzhenry and Cathal Doyle - piled the agony on an outclassed Westmeath side.
