Senior Hurling round-up: Tipp hammer Cork

Wins for Offaly, Westmeath

Tipperary have booked their place in the semi-finals of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship by cruising past a disappointing Cork by 0-22 to 0-13 at Semple Stadium.

The game never looked like living up to the pre-match hype as the reigning champions proved a cut above the Rebel County throughout.

Marksmen Seamus Callanan and John 'Bubbles' O'Dwyer were the standout performers on the day as they grabbed 0-15 between them.

Tipp will face Limerick in the semi-finals in four weeks’ time with Cork having to somehow put this chastening defeat behind them as they head to the All-Ireland qualifiers.

Two second-half goals courtesy of Joe Bergin helped Offaly overcome the dogged challenge of Kerry by 3-19 to 0-20 points at O’Connor Park.

The game was part of the Leinster SHC round-robin series and the win for the Faithful County booked their place in a quarter-final with Laois in two weeks’ time.

Despite playing into a strong wind for the first period, Offaly managed to lead at the break by 1-9 to 0-11 with Shane Dooley grabbing the only goal.

The Kingdom were unfortunate to be behind at the restart but Offaly took charge of the contest in the second half and ultimately proved too good for their gutsy opponents.

In the other game of the day Westmeath just about held off Carlow as they edged their encounter in Netwatch Cullen Park by the narrowest of margins, winning 0-22 to 2-15.
