Darragh Walshe and Craig McGuire put the Waterford side well on top with two quick second half goals. But Letterkenny took advantage of the loss through a neck injury of Waterford  centre back Craig McCabe midway into the half  and levelled shortly after with goals from Davitt Walsh and substitute Aiden McLoughlin in a five minute spell.
