Front line attackers blitz tribesmen

Waterford under 21 manager Sean Power and his highly talented squad romped to a 5-15 to 0-14 win over

Galway in the final of the Bord Gais Under 21 Hurling All-Ireland competition on Saturday evening. From the moment DJ Foran careered through to goal after just forty seconds into the game it was an uphill battle for the lads from West of the Shannon.

Mind you, it is probably a while since Semple Stadium Thurles or any other stadium has seen an under age team dominate a competition to such a degree as this Waterford outfit. Remember the huge wins over Clare, Tipperary and Antrim in the lead up to this final and one can quickly gauge how impressive they have been. Galway did add a brace of points before the 5th minute through the efforts of their

Limerick defeat Waterford United four nil

Waterford United will be glad to see the back of Limerick following this latest drubbing in the Markets Field on Saturday last. The previous three meetings saw the league champions win 5-2, 7-2 and 5-1 and they tagged on another four goals in this latest meeting.

Limerick boss Martin Russell had made two changes to the team that lined out in the league-clinching victory at UCD five days earlier as Chris Mulhall and Aaron Greene came in to replace Shaun Kelly and O'Flynn.

And it was Mulhall who netted his tenth league goal of the season inside three minutes as Russell's cross from the left was knocked down by Greene into the path of Mulhall who, in space ten-yards out, finished with ease.

Limerick doubled their lead on 11 minutes when Kenny's free-kick from 25-yards was spilled by

Under 21 hurlers must maintain focus

The Sean Power managed Waterford under 21 hurling team will face Galway in a Semple Stadium showdown on Saturday next. There is huge expectation in both camps with the tribesmen going for their 11th title while the Deise will be hoping to add to their single 1992 title.

The Munster champions have been awesome in their outings thus far with a hugely significant second half display against Tipperary taking the Provincial crown. In the All-Ireland semi-final against Antrim the goalscoring threat of players like Patrick Curran and Stephen Bennett saw Waterford cruise to a 5-25 to 1-8 win and with it a place in the All-Ireland final. There is no doubt but Waterford are a hugely talented outfit with many of the marquee players also part of the senior setup.

The majority of the Galway team may

Drogheda jinx hit Blues for 4th time

Waterford United 1 - Drogheda United 3

Promotion chasing Drogheda United defeated Waterford United for the 4th time this season when they came out on top at the RSC on Friday night last. Due to suspension, illness and injuries the Waterford manager Roddy Collins had to field a makeshift team but despite that fact the Blues gave as good as they got and for periods of time they outplayed the visitors and there is no doubt that the hosts deserved something from this game. Collins and the home supporters left the Kilbarry venue scratching their heads wondering how the Co Louth team actually took three points from the contest. In many ways the 90 minutes summed up what has been happening from the outset of the season. What ever could go wrong has gone wrong

Hurling Championship pickup

Another full round of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship was completed at the weekend. Reigning champions Ballygunner once again laid down a marker that they will be hard to wrest away from the Waterford News and Star Cup with a convincing win over recently promoted Portlaw in Kill, the scoreboard showing 3-18 to 1-12 in favour of the Gunners. The winners led 2-10 to 0-6 at the break as they put 2-3 to 0-2 on the board in a six minute spell midway through the opening half. The goal for the Tannerytown coming late in the game from under 21 star DJ Foran but this was little too late as far as the final result was concerned. Indeed the oddsmakers have had the Ballygunner outfit at the top of the betting lists since the beginning

Thomas Barr in Diamond League in Zurich

After his exploits in the Olympic Games in Rio a few weeks back Thomas Barr is back on the track this Thursday in Zurich in Switzerland at the Diamond League meeting, a meeting that sees 14 of those that won Olympic titles in Rio competing and the race in which Thomas competes the 400 metres hurdles is probably the most competitive of the fixture and it could in fact be called another Olympic final. He faces the Olympic Champion Klement from the USA,Culson from Puerto Rico who was sadly disqualified in that final with the electronic start equipment picking out his brake-it was not visible to the naked eye- from Kenya the reigning World Champion Bett is there also - he fell in Rio in his heat Thomas has had a busy time meeting

Waterford United 2 - Bray Wanderers 1

With the First Division team not playing last weekend all of the attention fell on Waterford United's Elite Under 17 League team when they played Bray Wanderers at the RSC on Saturday last. They had won their previous two games against Cabinteely and Limerick and as a result they had moved into the top four and the qualifying positions. Two fine goals kept their run going and it would appear that this team is really getting into the groove right now. This was a game they dominated throughout and in truth the result was never in any real doubt. Waterford could have taken the lead in the very first minute when Adam Conway picked out Sean Roche from the right but the usually reliable Blues striker lost his composure and he shot wide from

Young guns fire to All Ireland final

On Saturday afternoon a highly fancied Waterford under 21 hurling team put themselves in line to win an All-Ireland title as they hammered Antrim on a

5-25 to 1-8 scoreline in rainsoaked Semple Stadium Thurles. Having come through a Munster campaign which saw the Deise with comprehensive victories over both Clare (3-23 to 1-11) and Tipperary (2-19 to 0-15) the Munster kingpins were fully expected to justify their position as raging hot favourites. Antrim under manager Ollie Bellew had faced much weaker oppostion in their previous games against Down (2-21 to 1-18) and Derry (0-16 to 1-9) and their fans among an attendance of 4125 came with more hope than confidence. Credit the Glensmen they are keeping the game alive in the Northeast of the country but on Saturday's showing there is a huge gulf
