Tipperary's minor hurlers got their Munster campaign back on track with an impressive, goal-laden victory against Cork at Semple Stadium yesterday.

After losing their opener against Limerick, Tipp needed a victory and they pushed for that right from the throw-in.

Despite missing a penalty in the second minute, with Cian Long saving well from James Devanney's effort, Tipperary were raising green flags for fun in the opening half.

Their first came in the sixth minute when Kevin Maher latched on to a break after a long free by Conor Whelan and struck to the net; the second was a fine first-time shot by Devanney after nice build-up play by Sean Hayes.

The third saw Hayes going for goal himself, cutting in from the right wing and chipping over the Cork keeper into the top corner from the narrowest of angles, helping Tipp to a commanding 3-7 to 0-8 cushion at the interval.

A couple of early points and a brilliant goal by sub Aaron Mulcahy, moving in from the right and delivering a bullet to the net, kept the Cork lads in it, but it didn't take long for Tipperary to respond, with their own sub Devon Ryan hitting a similar score at the other end to keep them well in front.
