Munster SFC: Tipperary defeat Waterford
GAA Munster Senior Football championship Quarter-Final
Tipperary 1-15 Waterford 1-7
By Thomas Keane at Fraher Field, Dungarvan for GAA.ie
Liam Kearns Tipperary side produced a strong second half display to beat Waterford at Fraher Field. It was the home side that started the stronger racing into an early three point lead inside six minutes with all of Waterford’s scores coming from the boot of Paul Whyte, two of which were from placed balls.
Tipperary hit their first score of the game on seven minutes through the impressive Michael Quinlivlan and as the game entered its second quarter they became the stronger of the two sides and at the break they were 0-8 to 0-6 in front.
A crowd of 1,753 saw the first goal of the game on 48 minutes. A long ball in around the Waterford goal was met by the fist of Quinlivlan which came back off the Waterford crossbar and hit off the unlucky Maurice O’Gorman and past Stephen Enright to give Tipperary a 1-11 to 0-6 lead.
Waterford hit back with a goal on 58 minutes Whyte finishing to the net following a pass from Joey Veale but this was as good as it got for the home side as Tipperary ran out comfortable eight point winners and now go on to meet Cork in the Munster semi final.
