Waterford were probably red hot favourites going into the game at the RSC having won their last eight games.
BUT it was Harps who broke the deadlock after 23 minutes minutes thorugh Matt Harkin.
The breakthrough came when Paul McVeigh cross from the right to allow Harkin to steal in with a fine header past the stranded Packie Holden.
However Harps lead was short-lived as the home side equalised after jut five minutes through Peter Ehite.
Both sides cancelled eachother out in the second and Harps had to hold on for the last 20 minutes after Aaron O’Hagan was show a red card.
Peter Hutton will be delighted to have grabbed a share of the spoils considering Waterford’s record of late.
