ColAiste na nDeise romped to a 25-point victory at Golden yesterday afternoon.
The Waterford side raced into a 1-7 to 0-0 lead with only nine minutes on the clock.
Patrick Curran opened the scoring after 14 seconds and when Micheal Harney raised a green flag after four minutes, the writing was on the wall for St Caimin's. By half-time a rampant Deise had established an unassailable 1-15 to 0-3 advantage.
Tadhg Burke and Cathal Curran also contributed handsomely to the scoreboard on a day when 10 different players found the target for the victors.
