Mulvey goal earns London a draw

London 5-6

Waterford 2-15

A SECOND half hat-trick from Lorcan Mulvey helped London to a draw against Waterford in a thrilling Allianz Football League Division Four encounter at Ruislip on Sunday.

Goals from Alan O'Hara and Padaig McGoldrick had London leading 2-4 to 0-9 at the break.

Waterford responded early in the second period through Patrick Hurney and Joey Veale, who shared a goal apiece.

In a dramtic game played in strong winds, a free from Hurney put the visitors three clear with three minutes left.

But Mulvey found the net in the last move of the game - and in doing so earned the Exiles their first point of the campaign.
