Cork progress to Munster semi-finals after comfortable defeat of Tipp
It was a thoroughly deserved victory for the Rebels.

Cork 1-20

Tipperary 0-8

John O’Shea reports from Pairc Ui Rinn

CORK COMFORTABLY PROGRESSED into the semi-final stages of the EirGrid U20 Munster Football Championship on Saturday night.

It was a thoroughly deserved victory from a Cork point of view, with the Sean Hayes-managed side showcasing some clinical instincts throughout the hour’s play.

Tipp were expected to make a fist of things, especially given the recent progression of football in the underage ranks. But Cork stamped their authority on this game from the outset.

After Tipperary saw a good share of early possession, Cork got into the groove and had the better of the exchanges for the remainder of the opening half.

Cork were getting a number of fine scores, with Chris Og Jones and Matthew Bradley among those to make an impression and to cause a danger in the Cork forward line.

The hosts had a seven-point lead at the break and life was to prove even more comfortable in the second half, as they kept Tipp at bay without the need to get out of second gear.

Clare now lie in wait for Cork in the semi-final stages, with Kerry and Waterford contesting the other last-four tie.

This is the first year of the new U20 championship, replacing the U21 championship, which was in operation since 1962
