Kerry 0-17 Tipperary 0-14

Kerry took the scalp of Tipperary to move into the semi-finals of the Munster Hurling Cup with arguably the biggest hurling result in Austin Stack Park since they beat the then All-Ireland champions Clare by 3-07 to 1-08 in opening round of 1995-96 league campaign.

New manager Stephen Molumphy will take satisfaction in the grit, and no little skill, shown by his team. Right from the off they were up to the size of the task, with Paudie Ahern pointing in the first minute.

Shane Conway was prominent from play and placed balls as the Kingdom enjoyed a three-point cushion at the interval.

There was a significant stoppage in play as Tipperary's Willie Connors received medical attention in what appeared to be a serious injury.

The Premier men never led, but Sean Ryan's free in the 78th minute meant the hosts led by the bare minimum, 0-15 to 0-14, but Ahern and Conway sealed the win with two more points deep into injury time.
