Cork route one works a dream in Munster Hurling League final

Cork and Tipperary faced off in the pre-season competition decider

Cork

Cork capped a bright start to the Pat Ryan era, with a Munster Hurling League final win against Tipperary.

An early goal set the Rebels on their way, with route one paying dividends. Patrick Collins launched a huge ball from inside his own 20-metre line, which landed on the Tipperary 14.

Chaos ensued, before Patrick Horgan scooped the ball into the net.

The Premier County did hit back, with Sean Ryan finishing a beautiful goal after a neat one-two in the build-up.

But the Lee-siders won out, 3-14 to 1-19.

Elsewhere, All-Ireland champions Limerick finished their pre-season campaign with a comfortable 0-25 to 0-9 victory over Kerry in Tralee. John Kiely’s charges will open their National Hurling League campaign away to Cork in two weeks’ time.

In the Walsh Cup, Offaly overcame a nine-point deficit to shock Laois, winning 2-21 to 1-23.

Micheál Donoghue’s Dublin team prevailed against Westmeath, 1-20 to 0-15.

On Saturday, Galway made it three from three, beating Antrim 1-31 to 2-15. Meanwhile, Wexford overcame Kilkenny in front of a bumper crowd under lights, prevailing 1-25 to 2-18.

The Faithful County’s late comeback in Tullamore ensured the Yellowbellies progressed to the Walsh Cup final, where they will face the Tribesmen at Croke Park next Saturday.

Kildare continued their impressive start to 2023 in the Kehoe Cup, with a 0-26 to 0-15 win over Down.
