Wexford 1-21 Carlow 0-7
The visitors' third successive Group 3 victory was never in doubt, as they were ahead by 0-8 to 0-1 when Carlow defender Richard Coady was red-carded for dissent in the 30th minute.
Wexford went on to lead by 0-10 to 0-4 at half-time and eased even further clear in the second period, with the goal coming from substitute David Dunne midway through.
The prize for the winners of the clash with Offaly will be a final appearance under the Croke Park floodlights against either Galway or Dublin as a curtain-raiser to the Dublin v. Kerry Allianz Football League Division 1 opener on Saturday, January 30.
