Ryan keeps Déise in the hunt
Waterford 1-7 Limerick 0-10
Waterford and Limerick still have hope heading into the final round of games after last night's scrappy stalemate in Dungarvan, where Déise full-forward Aaron Ryan struck two late points to level matters.
On 28 minutes, Aidan Behan slipped in Ryan and he finished low past Dylan O'Sullivan to make it 1-4 to 0-2.
The visitors landed five points in a row and the nip-and-tuck finale saw the spoils shared.
