Cork GAA minor footballers beat Waterford GAA minor footballers in the Electric Ireland Munster GAA Football Minor Championship quarter-final on Wednesday night.
The Rebel County went on to win 5-28 to 0-03 in an extremely one-sided affair at Dungarvan, a week after their little pitchers beat Waterford by the same margin.
The Déise have never beaten Cork at a lower level and their most recent match-up was clear proof that the rift between the sides is too great.
Jamie O’Driscoll scored a hat trick and Darragh O’Brien and Niall Daly also scored.
Three other underage footballers from Cork got seven points or more that night and helped the team to a 40-point win.
Adam Murray scored all of Waterford’s points, but none came out of the game.
Very hard for a bunch of young guys to take that beating, hardly worth applauding that score 🤷♂️🤔.

Many people were shocked by the apparent rift between the two sides and felt sorry for the Waterford minors.
The magnitude of the deficit came as a huge shock to many of those who commented on the game.
Some Cork fans congratulated their side on the win they had won on Wednesday night.
However, other fans felt it was unfair to applaud such a result at the behest of underage footballers who had trained hard for the occasion.
Dan, that was annoying. Really feel sorry for the minors of Waterford. No small team deserves to be hammered like this. Moreover, it is of no use to Cork. They should have played an AvB game better

Fans took to Twitter to express their views on what needs to be changed so that this never happens again.
There were those who feared that provinces would lose promising footballers as a result of being at the end of such backlogs.
An user ‘@DylanFins11‘ said something needs to be done about these ‘mismatches’.
Some suggested a B championship at junior level so that the young players can play other teams at their level.
That will encourage young boys in Waterford to play football, a similar beating to Antrim from Donegal last night as well. @officialgaa restructuring is necessary, figures must be provided. Many counties would like to have a shot at All Ireland Minor C medals than betting that way. https://t.co/YfjMkfvPcz

The Cork minors advance to a provincial semi-final where they will play the Kerry GAA minors footballers.
A closer result in that match would be appreciated by the masses.
