Cork 4-20 Waterford 0-5

Cork secured a Munster MFC semi-final spot with a straightforward win over Waterford at Páirc Uí Rinn this evening.

The home side were always fancied to advance and they were set on their way with a goal from Conor Corbett inside three minutes, while a second from Aodhán Ó Luasa on 10 had them 2-4 to 0-0 in front.

Ó Luasa added another point before Aaron Ryan got Waterford off the mark, but Cork continued to dominate and led by 2-13 to 0-3 at half-time.

Evan Cooke added a third goal within a minute of the restart and though the scoring rate dropped as both sides emptied their benches, the Rebels gradually eased further clear.

Seán McDonnell wrapped up the win with a fourth goal at the death, leaving them with a last-four tie against Kerry next month.
