Cork 1-15 Wexford 0-8

Cork remain on course for a first All-Ireland senior camogie title since 2009 as they swept Wexford aside with a stunning second-half display in Walsh Park, Waterford, on Saturday.

They joined Kilkenny, the side they defeated to lift the O’Duffy Cup five years ago, in the September showdown with a display of defensive tenacity and long-range point-taking that left Wexford with no answer.

Cork’s pace up front troubled Wexford throughout and Katriona Mackey scored an goal in the 14th minute that helped launch the Munster side into the dominant position the held by the final whistle.
