Kilcormac/Killoughey will face Oulart-the-Ballagh in the Leinster Club Senior Hurling Final next Sunday after the Wexford champions overcame Ballyhale Shamrocks by the narrowest of margins in Wexford Park on Saturday afternoon.

Oulart-the-Ballagh came from 1-3 to 0-0 down after just five minutes to win by 1-11 to 1-10 with Eoin Moore launching over a point from 80 metres to win the game. It was the only time the Wexford champions lead in the entire game.

After their superb start, Ballyhale suffered a major set back after 20 minutes when Henry Shefflin was forced off with an ankle injury.

Ballyhale still lead by 1-9 to 1-6 at the break but they only added a single point in the second-half from Cha Fitzpatrick as Oulart-the-Ballagh hauled their way back before eventually edging ahead to win at the death.
