Johnny Kelly's side fought back to a winning position only to concede a late equaliser.
A draw away to Wexford in Division One of the National Hurling League ultimately constitutes a disappointment, according to the game's player of the match, Cillian Kiely.
The Kilcormac man hit two points and broke up play effectively but couldn't prevent his side conceding a late equalising point to a 13 man Wexford side that had trailed for much of the contest.
Both Charlie McGuckin and Jack O'Connor found themselves red carded in the second half, giving Offaly a significant advantage in terms of numbers and options.
However, Wexford remained competitive through-out the second 35 minute period and Offaly needed a late Brian Duignan goal to level the game.
Kiely and co might have thought the game was won when Duignan then pointed a free in added time to put his side in the lead.
That score was then swiftly cancelled out by Seamus Casey to secure a draw on a final scoreline of 0-20 to 1-17.
Kiely says they travelled down to Wexford Park for a win and nothing less:
