DE LA SALLE and Roanmore are the first two sides through to this year’s Waterford senior hurling semi-finals after they won quarter-final ties today.

The two city clubs defeated the western pair of Dungarvan and Abbeyside respectively to reach the last four. De La Salle had seven points to spare over Dungarvan, while Roanmore were eight-point victors against Abbeyside.

De La Salle had key scorers in Thomas Douglas and Reuben Halloran, who shot 1-5 apiece, while county senior Jack Fagan hit 0-4. Top scorer for Dungarvan was Patrick Curran with 1-10.

Roanmore saw off an Abbeyside team who had goalscorers in Waterford seniors Michael Kiely and Conor Prunty. Gavin O’Brien was the pointscoring star for Roanmore as he struck 0-15, while Lee Hearne grabbed their only in the 1-22 to 2-11 win.

De La Salle last contested a final in 2019 and Roanmore were in last year’s decider, both sides losing out to Ballygunner, the dominant force in Waterford club hurling.

The reigning All-Ireland champions are in action tomorrow at the quarter-final stage as they play Fourmilewater with the curtain-raiser seeing Mount Sion play Lismore. Both games are live on TG4.
