Waterford 2-16 London 1-8

Report from the Irish Independent newspaper

Waterford claimed a morale-boosting victory against London as Paul Whyte and Patrick Hurney pulled the strings at Ardmore.

The fluent home team carved open the London back line but passed up on five one-on-ones before Whyte tucked the ball away on 49 minutes. The captain skied a first-half penalty right and wide yet they recovered to lead 0-9 to 0-5 at the interval.

In injury time, Stephen Dalton pulled down London’s Rory Mason and Barry Tiernan signalled a penalty. The defender got a black a card and Mason sent Stephen Enright the wrong way.
