Waterford hauled themselves back from a 10-point deficit at the interval on home soil as they utilised the strong wind at their back in the second half to take the points on offer in the Division 1B league tie.

But it wasn’t the only key score that Bennett was involved in. He finished with 1-1 to his name, yet it was an assist that stood out in Waterford’s eventual 1-18 to 2-13 victory.

Check out this brilliant thinking during the second half from a sideline cut to enable midfielder Jamie Barron to fire over a point as part of Waterford’s comeback.

The results mean Waterford take on Clare in their quarter-final tie next weekend while Galway will be at home to Wexford.
