Bergin double tilts it for Tipp

Tipperary 2-11 Waterford 2-7

Report from the Irish Independent newspaper

Jamie Bergin’s second goal, five minutes from time, proved the game-changer as Tipperary advanced to the minor semi- final at Fraher Field. Waterford, inspired by man of the match Conor Gleeson, recovered from four down to lead with nine minutes left. Padraig White then levelled it before Bergin pounced.

Waterford got off to an ideal start when Gleeson’s effort in the seventh minute dropped into the net. Tipp blasted 1-4 without reply during the second quarter and silenced Gleeson momentarily. Bergin rattled the net on 16 minutes, while Tommy Nolan, Jack Skehan, White (free) and Emmet Maloney had points. Cormac Curran hit Waterford’s first point on 15 minutes. Jack Kennedy maintained Tipp’s four-point lead at the break. Ross Peters then restored Tipp’s half-time lead (1-8 to 1-4) and Gleeson then hit an unstoppable shot to the net. A brace from Mullaney and another from Michael Sweeney put them 2-7 to 1-9 ahead. White levelled on 54 minutes and then Bergin’s second goal sealed it.

Scorers – Tipperary: J Bergin 2-0, P White (1f), E Maloney, J Kennedy 0-2 each, P Maher, R Peters, T Nolan, S Quirke, J Skehan 0-1 each. Waterford: C Gleeson 2-1, J Mullaney, M Sweeney 0-2 each, C Curran, J Allen (f) 0-1 each.

Kiely hits groove to sink Clare

Kerry 2-16 Clare 0-7

Report from the Irish Independent newspaper

Kerry got their campaign off to a good start at Cusack Park, Ennis as they cruised to a comfortable victory over Clare. A 0-8 to 0-3 lead at the break was no more than Kerry deserved and with the wind at their backs in the second half, they forged further ahead. With Barry O’Sullivan and Mark O’Connor outstanding in the middle, Jack O’Connor’s youngsters built on this dominance to carve out the win.

Clare opened the scoring in the sixth minute when wing-forward Keelan Sexton landed a free-kick from 50 metres. Kerry’s Jordan Kiely levelled matters with a fisted effort. The sides were tied at 0-3 apiece by the 12th, but five unanswered Kerry points before the break gave them the platform. Kiely grabbed Kerry’s first goal eight minutes after the restart when he was fed by substitute Stephen O’Sullivan and the second goal arrived in the 49th minute. Killian Spillane – from the famous Templenoe family – also tortured Clare, while Kiely can be happy with his 2-3 personal tally.

Scorers – Kerry: J Kiely 2-3, K Spillane 0-6, M Flaherty 0-3, M Burns 0-2, S O’Sullivan, I Parker 0-1 each. Clare: K Sexton 0-2fs, E Courtney 0-2, C Finucane, C Pyne, L Madigan 0-1 each.

Kerry – S Ryan (capt); J Morgan, B Begley, T O’Sullivan; J Foley, A Barry, B Sugrue; B O’Sullivan, M O’Connor; M Flaherty, B Rayle, M Burns; J Kelly, K Spillane, C Bambury
Subs: S O’Sullivan for Bambury (inj, 4), C Coffey for Foley (26), L Kearney for Rayle (52), T Ó Sé for B O’Sullivan (52), I Parker for Flaherty (58), D Roche for Morgan (58).

Clare – K Normoyle; B Cahill (capt), P Lillis, J Woods; C Ó hAiniféin, C Pyne, C O’Dea; N McCarthy, E Hanrahan; K Sexton, E Courtney, A Rudd; C Finucane, M Duffy, A Davidson
Subs: C Downes for Cahill (BC, 20), L Tierney for Rudd (h-t), L Madigan for Duffy (38), M Byrne for Hanrahan (45), L Howard for Pyne (55).

Hurley sets Cork on road to victory

Cork 6-15 Limerick 1-7

Report from the Irish Independent newspaper

Cork were far too strong for Limerick at Pairc Ui Rinn last night as they cruised to a 23-point victory. This was a non-event from the very start, with a goal and a point from Michael Hurley putting Cork into a commanding position inside two minutes and from there they set about ensuring that Limerick had no way into the game. Limerick did not open their account until the 22nd minute through Mikey Morrissey by which stage they had conceded 3-10.

Shane Kingston was the source of five of those points and two goals in quick succession, from Damien Buckley and Hurley, had put the outcome beyond doubt even at such an early stage. Sean O’Donoghue added a fourth goal shortly before half-time and Cork led 4-11 to 0-2 at the break. Limerick deserve credit for not giving up and late on their brightest star, Morrissey, scored a consolation goal.

Scorers – Cork: M Hurley 2-4 (1f), D Buckley 2-2 (2fs), S Kingston 0-5, S O’Donoghue 1-1, C Moynihan 1-0, B Coakley, M Ó Duinnín, S Ronayne 0-1 each. Limerick: M Morrissey 1-2, R Hayes 0-2fs, T Childs, G McCarthy, B Hurley 0-1 each.

CORK – C O’Driscoll; C O’Donovan, S Powter, K Flahive; T Bushe, D Meaney, C Kiely; S O’Leary, B Coakley; S O’Donoghue, M Ó Duinnín, S Ronayne; D Buckley, M Hurley, S Kingston
