The Limerick Minor Footballers see off Waterford to book Munster Phase One final spot

Evan Curry was on hand with a first time finish to the net for the games only goal to seal the result in the final ten minutes in Rathkeale.

The Limerick Minor Footballers booked their passage into the Munster MFC Phase One final with a 1-8 to 0-5 win over Waterford in Mick Neville Park.

Tipperary’s win over Clare ensures a repeat of the first round in the final on Thursday week while also booking Limerick and the Premier’s place in the Munster semi-finals.

It will be a repeat of last year’s final where Tipperary came out on top. The Premier were also victorious in the first round clash earlier this month but Limerick will take confidence from the back to back wins over Clare and Waterford.

In Rathkeale, Evan Curry started as he meant to go on with an early score with Padraic Murphy doubling their lead after ten minutes. But for Waterford’s inaccuracy they could have been ahead with Cian O’Sullivan the only Deise man to find the target as scores from Kieran O’Kelly and Tommy Glynn had Limerick 0-4 to 0-1 ahed at the half.

Murphy and Curry doubled their tallies after the restart and while O’Sullivan hit back for Waterford, Curry was on hand with a first time finish to the net for the games only goal to seal the result. That put Limerick seven clear with Cillian Meade and Curry rounding out the Treaty scoring late on.

Scorers for Limerick: Evan Curry (1-3), Padraic Murphy (0-2), Kieran O’Kelly, Tommy Glynn, Cillian Meade (0-1 each).

Limerick: Sam Guerin; Cian O’Sullivan, Callum Buckley, James Hunt; Kieran O’Kelly, Cathal Woulfe, Sam Colgan, Evan Curry, Liam Og Glynn, Padraic Phelan, Darragh Hogan, Adam Murphy; Tommy Glynn, Andrew Lyons, Padraic Murphy. 

Subs: Cillian Meade for Colgan (HT), Con Kirby for O’Kelly (36), Ross Allen for Lyons (45), Rory Mullins for Hogan (56).
