PIC: Westmeath's historic win against Kilkenny came at a painful cost for their goalscoring hero (NSFW)

We're sure that he doesn't care.

Westmeath have pulled off one of the biggest shocks in U-21 hurling by beating Eddie Brennan's Kilkenny 1-11 to 0-12 in their Leinster championship quarter-final at TEG Cusack Park.

The Lake County went into the break with a one-point lead, Darragh Clinton was their main threat early on scoring seven of their nine points in the first-half.

The decisive score of the game came through Warren Casserly though after the Castlepollard man manged to convert Killian Doyle's delivery from close range to make it 1-9 to 0-9.

The Cats had the chance to snatch victory late on when they were awarded a penalty in the dying moments, but the ball was hit wide.

We're certain that Casserly doesn't mind picking up a few wounds after such a historic victory, but this one looks particularly nasty.
