Goal, Peter Hogan - Stephen Bennett, that was magic, an overhead flick of the hurl to pass into Hogan's path. Waterford 2-15 0-14 Tipperary.— Off The Ball (@offtheball) July 27, 2016
It's Waterford's first Munster under-21 crown since 1994 and puts them into the All-Ireland semi-finals.
Antrim booked their place in that semi-final against Waterford after they were crowned Ulster champions tonight.
They were trailing Derry by four points at half-time, but fought back to claim comfortable win by 0-16 to 1-09.
