DARRAGH Corcoran struck a brace of classy points in stoppage time to give Waterford their first win in four attempts in this year’s Allianz Football at a weather-bashed Markievicz Park on Saturday afternoon.
The full-forward’s late, late brace stunned a 14-man Sligo who were looking to hold on for at least a draw after corner-back John Francis Carr was given his marching orders with 63 minutes played.
A brace of second-half goals from Seanie Furlong and Dylan Guiry, who excelled, put Waterford on course for victory as they eventually overturned a 0-9 to 0-6 interval deficit.
Liam Gaughan kicked 0-6 for the home side, whose six wides including a terrific goal chance for teenager Red Og Murphy in the 11th minute.
