Powerful second half surges from Cork and Limerick saw both counties book their place in the Electric Ireland Munster minor hurling semi-finals tonight.
Two late goals from Limerick subs Josh Ryan and Cian Magnier Flynn helped the Treaty County to a 2-11 to 1-8 win over Clare, but the contest was certainly tighter than the six point winning margin suggests.
The sides were level at 0-7 to 1-4 at the half before goals in the 52nd and 62nd minutes settled the matter.
Meanwhile, Cork joined their Munster rivals in the final four after a 0-17 to 1-10 victory over Waterford. The Rebels were down by one at the break but five consecutive points in the second half allowed Cork to run out as four-point winners. Evan Sheehan and Josh Beausang were the heroes for the victors, hitting five points apiece.
