Waterford oust Rebels
Shane Bennett and Patrick Curran were the stars as Waterford beat Cork by 1-21 to 1-11 in the Bord Gáis Energy Munster U21HC quarter-final at Páirc Uí Rinn.
While they trailed 0-5 to 0-2 inside the opening quarter, six unanswered points helped the visitors to lead by 0-9 to 0-6 at half-time and a good start to the second half gave them a commanding lead.
Luke Meade gave Cork brief hope late on as he netted to bring them back to within six points, 0-20 to 1-11, but the outstanding Bennett responded at the other end to bring his tally to 1-4. Curran's 12th point of the night rounded off proceedings to send Waterford into a semi-final meeting with Clare.
