The defending minor champions, Dublin, face a must-win final round game after losing 0-12 to 0-8 against Wicklow tonight in the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship.
Having already lost a group match against Meath, they now know face a trip to Mullingar to play Westmeath next week where they absolutely must win.
Dublin started dual stars Luke Swan and Seán Foran but Conor Murray and Liam Dunne were on the bench with the Dublin minor hurlers in action this weekend.
Huge result for Wicklow https://t.co/FYGjciUjvK

Three shrills of a whistle haven’t sounded as good in a while. Final score Wicklow 2-6 Dublin 0-8... well deserved. Congratulations to the team, the management team and everyone involved! Great night for Wicklow GAA

Wicklow led 2-4 to 0-4 at half-time. Goals from Kevin Quinn and Eoin Darcy secured the win for Wicklow who now jump over Dublin in the table. As a reminder, Group 1 features Meath, Wicklow, Dublin, Offaly, Louth and Westmeath. Meath have now qualified, with a 1-13 to 1-12 victory over Offaly tonight ensuring they have won all their games but the second spot is up for grabs.
The final round of games will take place on the 3rd July. Jason Sherlock & Ger Gleeson will have to ensure their Dublin side beat Westmeath next week and hope Wicklow don't win against Meath.
