Tipperary took their goalscoring tally for the league to 14 majors after putting Antrim to the sword at Corrigan Park.
Antrim 2-16 Tipperary 4-28
Tipperary maintained their perfect record in Group B of hurling’s Division 1 with a dominant victory over Antrim at Corrigan Park on Sunday.
The Premier County had no fewer than 11 different scorers on the day, and took their overall goalscoring tally to 14 majors in five outings.
Antrim were always on the backfoot as Tipp powered to a 14-point lead by half-time, with Liam Cahill’s men showing no mercy.
Although the hosts rallied in the second half, they were never really within striking distance.
The win was of little consequence to Tipp, who were already through to next week’s semi-final against Limerick, but it maintains their early-season momentum.
The visitors got off to a slow start, but quickly found their stride, with Mark Kehoe firing home a goal on four minutes.
Tipperary’s second goal came on 20 minutes as Conor Bowe rattled the net, while a third was added just before the break as Pauric Campion came in from the right and finished.
Antrim enjoyed a decent spell with two quick goals after the break, but they were unable to sustain the pressure as Tipperary hit back with their fourth major of the day.
John McGrath then began to put on an exhibition of point-taking, while substitutes Johnny Ryan and John Campion also got in on the act.
