Tyrone 1-18 Cork 2-17

Tyrone’s attempt to reach the All Ireland U20 final came up just short at Bord na Mona O’Connor Park in Tullamore yesterday afternoon when they lost out by two points to Cork in a game where  they held a seven point advantage early in the second half.

The Ulster champions looked set to cause an upset but Cork’s bench made a major impact with 1-5 from play while the sending off of midfielder Joe Oguz in the 47th minute was a major blow for them as well.

For the second championship game in a row Tyrone recovered from a poor start to lead by four points at the break. Colm Barrett put Cork in front after only thirteen seconds but it was 0-2 apiece by the 4th minute with Mark Cronin and Tiarnan Quinn providing points for their respective sides.

Cathal O’Mahony then landed a superb free off the ground for Cork and in the 8th minute they grabbed a well worked goal through Cronin after he received a pass from Colm O’Callaghan.

Peter Og McCartan and O’Mahony exchanged points before Tyrone got back into the game with a goal. A quickly taken free from Sean Og McAleer found James Garrity who offloaded to Darragh Canavan and the centre half forward did the rest with a cool finish. Tyrone then hit seven in a row with McAleer and Quinn getting a couple each to give them a 1-10 to 1-6 lead.

A Quinn brace and one from McAleer put Tyrone seven clear within three minutes of the restart and they were in a great position at that stage. O’Mahony and Cronin closed the gap before Garrity got a Tyrone score.

A great seventy metre run from Ethan Jordan resulted in a Tyrone point to put them five clear again but that’s when Cork hit back after Oguz was dismissed. Jack Murphy blasted in a goal and Mahony, Eanna O’Hanlon and Fionn Herlihy all tagged on points to give them a sensational comeback win despite having Jack McCarthy black carded late on having used all their subs.
