Adam Lee’s 59th minute goal helped Cork clinch their first win in this year’s Munster minor hurling championship round-robin victory at Limerick’s expense as it finished 1-16 to 1-10 at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The Rebels had built up an 0-11 to 0-6 lead by half-time before Limerick narrowed the gap down to two points with a Jack Cosgrave penalty, after Danny Sheehan had been brought down, in the 58th minute.

Mark O’Brien’s free two minutes later would steady the ship for the hosts before Lee tucked home in piles of space to cement the victory for John Meyler’s lads.

In Dungarvan, Tipperary held off a fightback from Waterford to claim their second successive win on a 3-16 to 2-14 scoreline.

Adam Ryan, Cillian Minogue and Billy O’Brien netted first-half goals that saw the Premier men go in with a commanding 3-9 to 0-6 lead at the half.

The home side would battle back after the change of ends, firing in goals via Shane Power and Gearoid O’Shea to help reduce their arrears to three, but the points of Stefan Tobin ensured the victory for Tipp.
