Cork 0-15 Waterford 0-13

Friday July 23 2010

Cork won the Munster Intermediate Hurling Championship for the second year in succession when they produced a superb performance to beat Waterford in a tight encounter in Dungarvan last night. Indiscipline cost the Cork defence dear in the first half as Waterford corner-forward Mark Gorman scored four points from frees. Waterford started off the second half well and opened up a five-point lead. However, Cork, with Michael O’Sullivan and Mark Harrington to the fore, got back on level terms by the 57th minute. Points from Billy Cooper and John Halbert were enough to see the Rebels lift the cup.
