Waterford progressed to the semi-finals of the Munster U21 Hurling Championship with a ten point win over Cork at Páirc Uí Rinn.
Shane Bennett scored 1-4 of the Deise's total and was awarded Man of the Match for his efforts.
Speaking to TG4's Micheal O'Domhnail when receiving the award, he elaborated on a busy day.
Bennett completed his Leaving Cert at 5pm and then, with the help of his mother, made the trip to Cork for the 7.30pm throw-in.
Yeah it's a great result now for us.
Finished the Leaving Cert there at five o'clock and just straight up. My mother brought me up and thankfully I made it on time.
Shane's mother should get a medal if Waterford win the Munster U21 title this year.
