Wexford let a seven-point interval lead evaporate in the second half as Dublin snatched a draw in the National Camogie League Division 1 at St Patrick's Park on Sunday afternoon.

Wexford 0-12 Dublin 0-12

The Slaneysiders have now scored just 38 points and no goals in their three matches to date and have rarely look like finding the net.

 

Linda Bolger, who has registered 19 of those scores, was top point-getter again with nine, including seven in the first half, as Wexford moved into a 0-10 to 0-3 half-time advantage.

 

The hosts were lucky that referee John Dolan butchered an advantage that took a Louise O'Hara goal off the board but were still the better side in an impressive first thirty minutes.

 

However, it all went wrong for Wexford after the break as Ali Twomey nailed dead-balls and Aisling Carolan levelled the game with three minutes left (0-11 each).

 

Again Bolger put Wexford ahead six seconds into added time but Twomey equalised two minutes later to leave Wexford with a win, draw and loss from three outings.

 

Next up for the Slaneysiders is a home game against table-toppers Galway on Sunday before the round-robin stages end with a trip to Offaly.
