'Brick' Walsh helps Waterford to victory over Cork
CoOpSuperstores.ie Munster Senior Hurling League
WATERFORD 1-24 CORK 1-18
The evergreen Michael ‘Brick’ Walsh began his 17th season in the Waterford jersey by scoring a goal that helped the Deise see off Cork in Wednesday's CoOpSuperstores.ie Munster Hurling League clash at Mallow.
Helped by a goal from Aidan Walsh, Cork led by 1-11 to 0-12 at half-time.
But after Walsh’s goal drew Waterford level early in the second half they then struck the front through Thomas Ryan and never trailed thereafter.
Stephen Bennett’s accuracy from frees – he hit 12 in total – was another major factor in Waterford’s favour as they pulled away from Cork in the final quarter.
