It was another busy for week in Tyrone for both the clubs and the county under 14’s. A full county squad made the long journey to Donegal town to play in the Four Masters club in Pairc Tir Conaill in the Ulster championship semi-final.
The team was fresh from winning the Ulster Blitz title and were keen to end the week with another win. The weather was not as kind as it had been during their previous matches and the sun disappeared to be replaced by persistent rain. Donegal were strong and determined and it took Tyrone a long time to register their first goal after hitting a series of wides in the blustery conditions. There were long periods of hard hitting tackles and Tyrone in spite of enjoying territorial superiority were unable to make their possession count. There was a second goal for Tyrone late on in the half and that’s how it stood when the whistle ended the half.
Tyrone started the second half well and they were now clearly ready to take the game to Donegal. The team gelled well very early on and as expected the scores came thick and fast. The home side could maintain the pace they had set in the first half and it became a very one sided affair. Tyrone used all their subs and enjoyed a very well earned but comfortable win.
The final score was Donegal 0:0 Tyrone 9:4.
Scorers Niamh Donnelly 3:0, Niamh Faulker 3:0, Nicola McKeaver 1:0, Orla Coyle 1:0, Jordan Fay 1:0, Rona Mallon 0:2, Eimear Coyle 0:1 and Catherine Donnelly 0:1.
Tyrone will now meet Cavan in next week’s Ulster championship final. It will be a repeat of the Ulster Blitz final in which Tyrone came out on top. Massive thanks to Bernie Mallon who steered the team to a huge win. Fionnuala McGrath will be back to help Bernie next week. Thanks are also extended to all at the Four Masters Club who looked after the team so well following the match.

In the minor club championship there were wins for Dungannon and Derrylaughan who will now come face to face in the final. Éire Óg and Eglish will contest the under 16 championship, Eileen Coney Cup, final on 9th September. Congratulations to Eglish on winning the under 14 league for 2012.

Derrylaughan was the venue for the Go Games Blitz on Saturday past and it was an excellent and a huge vote of thanks is due to all at the club who made everyone very welcome. There were ample refreshments for the supporters, mentors and all the camogs got their fill of goodies at the end. Well done Derrylaughan.
