Today's Waterford Crystal Cup action

Clare, UCC, Tipperary and UL claimed wins in Hurling's Waterford Crystal Cup in Munster this afternoon.

At Sixmilebridge, a first minute goal from David Reidy helped pave to the way for a 1-14 to 0-11 victory for All-Ireland champions Clare over Limerick.

The hosts led by 1-9 to 0-6 at half-time in a game which saw Bobby Duggan top-score for Clare with 0-12.

Clare's semi-final opponents will be UCC, after the Leeside students claimed a 3-28 to 2-14 win over Mary Immaculate College at the Mardyke this afternoon.

Cork's Conor Lehane and Limerick duo Willie Griffin and Jack Ahern all registered first half goals for the students, who led by 3-18 to 0-7 at half-time.

UCC led by 3-21 to 0-11 entering the final quarter, but Mary Immaculate College worked hard with Cork's Jamie Wall and Tipperary Senior panellist Niall O'Meara, but it was too late for the Limerick college.

Tipperary will face UL in the other semi-final, with the Premier County accounting for Kerry by 2-16 to 0-8 at Austin Stack Park in Tralee this afternoon.

Tipperary led by 0-9 to 0-3 at half-time, and held Kerry to five second half points as goals from Michael Cahill and Eoin Kelly in the closing 20 minutes ensured the visitors went home with a 14-point win.

UL registered a 2-30 to 1-20 win over fellow college side Waterford IT at the WIT GAA grounds in Carriganore.

This high-scoring encounter was a gripping affair, with UL leading by 1-13 to 0-12 at the interval thanks to a goal from Tipperary's Tommy Heffernan.

WIT worked hard to get into contention but Clare hurler Podge Collins registered UL's second goal, with John Ryan netting WIT's lone goal.
