Waterford are Bord Gais Energy Munster under-21 champions after a 2-19 to 0-15 victory over Tipperary in tonight's final. 

Stephen Bennett got the first goal of the game for Waterford in the first half as the Deise went in 1-06 to 0-07 up on Tipperary at half-time. 


A second goal was forthcoming in the second period as Peter Hogan added a second: 

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.
