Ten-in-a-row chasing Ballygunner will face city rivals De La Salle in next Sunday's Waterford SHC final following their respective wins over Fourmilewater and Roanmore at the weekend.

In Fraher Field on Saturday evening, Dessie Hutchinson scored 1-3 to help the 'Gunners to a 1-23 to 1-15 victory. The winners had led by 1-12 to 1-7 at half-time.

The new-look Walsh Park reopened to spectators for yesterday's second semi-final which saw De La Salle edge out Roanmore by 0-19 to 0-18 to qualify for the first final since 2019. 

Sean Carton scored the winning point three minutes into stoppage-time, while Reuben Halloran shot 0-10 for the Gracedieu side in a game that was level no less than 14 times.
