Dublin 0-19   0-14 Waterford 

Dublin were the last side to inflict a National League defeat on Waterford back in 2014, and they repeated those efforts today with a five point win at Walsh Park.

While it was the Deise who made the brighter start - three quick points without reply - Dublin sprang into life to take a 0-07 0-05 lead over the subsequent phases of the first half. Waterford's response was strong enough to take a one point lead at the break but Dublin weren't finished.

As both sides traded scores in the early stages of the second half, it was the visitors who took the initiative in the latter stages with a flurry of points to deliver a winning margin of five points and a spot in the quarter-finals of the National League.
