Tyrone are confirmed as easy winners at Healy Park as Paddy Bradley’s late point for Derry signals an end to this one-sided encounter, the Red Hands claiming a facile 12-point victory to make it two wins from two outings in the national league. An impressive performance all round from the home side with the scores coming from Mickey Murphy (1-2), Peter Harte (1-1), Stephen O’Neill (0-2), Owen Mulligan (0-2), Mattie Donnelly (0-2), Mark Donnelly (0-2), Martin Penrose (0-2), Cathal McCarron (0-1), Kyle Coney (0-1)…

Martin Penrose delivers his second point of today’s fixture as we enter the closing moments at Healy Park, Derry responding with another consolation point straight away. This has certainly been a bitterly disappointing afternoon from a Derry persepective, and another promising one from a Tyrone viewpoint. Tyrone 2-15 Derry 0-8

Derry notch a seventh point through Kielt but this match has been all about respectability for the visitors for some time, Tyrone heading towards another impressive national league victory. Tyrone 2-14 Derry 0-7…

The ever industrious Mark Donnelly flashes a shot across the face of the Derry goal, which goes just wide, as Tyrone create another goal chance with a slick build up. Stephen McNally and Justin McMahon are now on the field for the closing stages as Kyle Coney becomes the ninth Tyrone player to hit the target today, from a free kick. Tyrone 2-14 Derry 0-6…

Tyrone are really cruising to victory in this encounter as Mark Donnelly swings over another excellent score to restore the 13 point lead. It’s the Carrickmore man’s second point of this half. Tyrone 2-13 Derry 0-6…

Mattie Donnelly shows a bit of quality with 20 minutes gone in the second half as he lobs over a great score to give Tyrone a massive 13 point cushion. This has been a good day for the Red Hands, and the gulf between these two sides today has turned out much greater than anybody had anticipated. Caolan O’Boyle pulls one back for Derry but there’s a big cheer from the home crowd as Sean Cavanagh joins the action. Tyrone 2-12 Derry 0-6…

PENALTY FOR TYRONE! A wonderful penetrating run by Peter Harte engineers another goal chance for the Red Hands but the outstanding young centre half back is pulled down and, after Patsy Bradley is sent off, Harte steps up and thumps the ball in tremendous style to the Derry net. What a season this young man is having, and his form is clearly playing a big part in this impressive run of form that Tyrone are presently enjoying. Derry respond with a pointed free through Paddy Bradley, but there’s only one result in the pipeline here today. Tyrone 2-11 Derry 0-5

This match has lost its edge some time ago as Owen Mulligan slots over another free to give the Red Hands a virtually unassailable ten point advantage. Kyle Coney enters the fray for the final quarter of this game. Tyrone 1-11 Derry 0-4…

Tyrone come close to adding a second goal, but of greater significance to Tyrone fans is the fact that Stephen O’Neill has had to go off the field with an injury. Here’s hoping it’s only a very short term injury because Stevie has been in fantastic form recently and we want so much to see him to stay fit for 2012…

Tyrone’s dominance continues as the home side move smoothly into a nine point lead in this third quarter, Peter Harte floating over a free kick to make it 1-9 for Tyrone and Mark Donnelly sending over a great score after a 40 metre run to increase the home tally to 1-10. Tyrone 1-10 Derry 0-4…

Caolan O’Boyle slots over a free for Derry to leave seven points separating the teams again but it looks like a long way back for the visitors at this stage. Tyrone 1-8 Derry 0-4…

Straight from the resumption, Tyrone widen the gap to eight points as Damian McCaul and Martin Penriose link up to cause havoc in the Derry defence, Mattie Donnelly rounding the move off with a neat point. Mickey Harte will be delighted with the opening seconds of this half. Tyrone 1-8 Derry 0-3…

Back here in Healy Park, it has been a very pleasing performance from Tyrone so far today, which is reflected in the 1-7 to 0-3 half time scoreline. Mickey Murphy, Stephen O’Neill, Martin Penrose and Peter Harte have been the outstanding players so far in this contest. The scores have come from Murphy (1-2), O’Neill (0-2), Penrose, Cathal McCarron and Owen Mulligan. Nearly ready to go again, as Joe McMahon takes his place for the second half in place of Aidan Cassidy.

Sadly the Derrytresk dream has ended in cruel disappointment, as Galway side Clonbur have come from behind to claim a 1-8 to 1-7 victory. Very disappointing for the Tyrone champions, who deserve enormous credit for what they have achieved. They led virtually all the way in Croke Park and had chances to add further scores, but sadly it was all snatched away from them in the dying stages.

Tyrone polish off the first half in style as Stephen O’Neill lobs over a brilliant score with the last kick of the half, giving the Red Hands a healthy seven point advantage at the midway stage of proceedings here at Healy Park. Since the 4th minute, when Derry were two points up, Tyrone have scored 1-7 and conceded just a single point from a free kick. So things are going very well for Tyrone at this stage and the winning run looks set to continue. Tyrone 1-7 Derry 0-3…

As things continue to look promising for Tyrone at Healy Park today, although there’s still a long way to go, Derrytresk are clinging on to a one point lead in Croke Park, 1-7 to 1-6, with time running out there. Good luck to the Tyrone side in those tense closing minutes. The Tyrone ladies meanwhile are trailing by two points to Laois.

GOAL FOR TYRONE! Peter Harte, Aidan Cassidy and Marty Penrose combine superbly to open up the Derry defence in great style and the impressive Michael Murphy applies an excellent finishing touch to propel his side into a five point lead, which is extended seconds later as Cathal McCarron swings over a delightful point from play. Tyrone 1-6 Derry 0-3…

Stephen O’Neill, denied by the woodwork a couple of times earlier, adds his name to the scoresheet with a neatly taken free, securing Tyrone’s fifth point of this NFL round 2 fixture. The Red Hands have registered four of the last five scores here and will be happy with how things are progressing in this encounter. Tyrone 0-5 Derry 0-3…

A superb point from Michael Murphy, his second score of the day, rounds off an excellent build up involving Mulligan and O’Neill and sends Tyrone back into the lead with 21 minutes gone at Healy Park. Tyrone 0-4 Derry 0-3…

Derry are enjoying a spell of pressure now and after failing to convert a couple of chances, from a ’45’ and then from a free kick, Paddy Bradley pops over a free kick to get his name on the scoresheet and the teams are level again in Healy Park, as Martin Penrose picks up a second yellow card for Tyrone. Tyrone 0-3 Derry 0-3…

Martin Penrose drives forward with 15 minutes gone and drills over Tyrone’s third point of the proceedings, giving the Red Hands the lead for the first time. Following that early burst from Derry, Tyrone have been the better side in the last ten minutes and are deservedly in front with the first quarter almost completed. Tyrone 0-3 Derry 0-2…

Tyrone’s efforts are rewarded as the in form Mulligan slots over Tyrone’s second point of the day to tie things up with 13 minutes gone at Healy Park, with Stephen O’Neill then hitting the post for the second time today just a minute later. Tyrone 0-2 Derry 0-2…

Owen Mulligan, arguably the star man of Tyrone’s campaign so far in 2012, with some great performances in recent weeks against Derry and Kildare, picks up an early yellow card, as Tyrone step up their attacking efforts in search of an equaliser approaching the ten-minute mark. Tyrone 0-1 Derry 0-2…

Tyrone, recent winners over Derry in the McKenna Cup final, and striving to maintain an impressive unbeaten start to 2012, open their account with a fine point from Mickey Murphy, with new captain Stephen O’Neill just off target from a free kick moments later, Derry leading by a point with six minutes gone. Tyrone 0-1 Derry 0-2.

Derry get off to a very bright start with two points inside the first four minutes, courtesy of Mark Lynch’s conversion from a ’45’ and Charlie Kielt’s fine point from play. Tyrone 0-0 Derry 0-2
