Cork opened their Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship campaign with a comprehensive victory over Waterford at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Tuesday evening.

It was a 3-19 to 0-15 win for the Rebels. Two sensational first half goals - the opening one from Barry O'Flynn and the second from Barry Wash - put Cork in control.

In the 14th minute, with Cork leading 0-5 to 0-4, a long ball found full-forward O'Flynn in space. From a tight angle, and despite the presence of Waterord full-back Dylan Ryan, Sarsfields man O'Flynn fired a wonderful strike past Deise goalkeeper Leon Lennon.

14 minutes later, with Cork still holding a four-point lead, Finn O'Brien took possession for Cork after intercepting a short puckout from Waterford.


He found Walsh who struck a superb shot beyond the reach of Lennon from just inside the semi-circular arc. It put Cork 2-10 to 0-9 ahead.

In the second half, Killeagh man Walsh - who finished the game with 2-5 (1-1 coming from play) - scored Cork's third goal of the night from a penalty. O'Flynn scored 1-7, all from play.

Cork face Tipperary in the next game of the round robin on April 4th. Tuesday's loss was Waterford's second of the championship. Limerick defeated them by a goal in the opening round last week. Next up for the Deise are Clare on April 11th.


In Tuesday night's other game, Limerick picked up their second win of the competition with a 2-20 to 0-22 victory over Clare.
