Offaly U20s Clinch Win Over Kildare With Late Point

The Faithful County joined Laois in securing a win in the Eirgrid Leinster championship last night.

A late point from Marcus Dalton helped Offaly secure a win against reigning All-Ireland champions Kildare in the Eirgrid Leinster under-20 football championship last night. 

The Faithful County ran out 0-8 to 1-4 victors over the Lilywhites.

It means Kildare go to table-toppers Louth in need of a win next week, who got the best of Longford on a scoreline of 3-14 to 2-12.

A goal was the difference for Laois as the O'Moore County ran out 1-09 to 0-9 point winners over Wexford in Group 2.

That victory sets up a clash with Wicklow next week, who secured a win over Carlow last night.

Westmeath couldn't replicate the success of their midlands counterparts, falling to Meath in Ashbourne on a final scoreline of 0-18 to 2-5 in their Group 3 clash.
