Ballygunner claimed their ninth consecutive Waterford Senior Hurling Championship title with a 2-11 to 0-8 victory over Mount Sion at Walsh Park on Sunday. Pauric Mahony and Peter Hogan hit the goals for the victors.

The win means that the reigning All-Ireland champions have equalled the feats of the nine-in-a-row Erin's Own and Mount Sion teams of the past.

Ballygunner now have a break of eight weeks before they face the Tipperary champions in the quarter-finals of the Munster championship.

Sportsfile's Sam Barnes was in Waterford on Sunday to capture the action, and the celebrations.
