The final whistle is blown and Tyrone are on maximum points after three impressive league outings, following a comfortable six point victory, 2-13 to 0-13, over Louth here in Drogheda. Some of the young guns like Coney, Harte, McKenna and McNabb really caught the eye today and the Tyrone supporters who travelled down for this match would most certainly have enjoyed what they witnessed. The Tyrone scores came from a variety of sources today, and many were beautifully executed, not least the two goals from Harte and McCaul. The nine men on target were Peter Harte (1-1), Damian McCaul (1-0), Owen Mulligan (0-3), Mark Donnelly (0-2), Kyle Coney (0-2), Cathal McCarron (0-2), Martin Penrose (0-1), Paddy McNeice (0-1) and Niall McKenna (0-1)…

Time is almost up and Tyrone are cruising towards the final whistle as Louth notch a consolation point before Justin McMahon enters the fray in place of the impressive Cathal McCarron. Tyrone 2-13 Louth 0-13…

Tyrone give themselves a lot more breathing space as Cathal McCarron scores a brilliant breakaway point, which is promptly followed by a classy score from Mulligan as Tyrone ease themselves seven points clear. Tyrone 2-13 Louth 0-12…

Louth create a couple of goal chances which aren’t taken, with John Devine again alert to the danger, and Tyrone get a welcome score at the opposite end as McNeice and McCarron do the spadework for a fine score from Mark Donnelly. Tyrone 2-11 Louth 0-11…

This match is still not out of reach for Louth with six minutes to go as they seek to salvage something from the game with a couple of points from White and Clarke. Tyrone need to raise their efforts again for these last few minutes because Louth are not throwing in the towel. Tyrone 2-10 Louth 0-12…

Veteran Ryan McMenamin joins the Tyrone defence in place of goalscorer McCaul for the remaining ten minutes of the game in Drogheda and unless Louth can muster a couple of goals in the next few minutes Tyrone are looking good for another league victory and top spot in division two…

Paddy McNeice points neatly to get in on the scoring act, and his effort gives Tyrone a six point lead as the visitors seek to pull further clear in the latter stages of the action here in Drogheda. Tyrone 2-10 Louth 0-10…

The Cavanagh brothers, Sean and Colm, are now on the field for the concluding stages of this match, and if that’s not enough to scare Louth, the home side then receive a red card courtesy of Paddy Keenan and their hopes of securing a good result have surely all but vanished with 14 minutes to go. Tyrone 2-9 Louth 0-10…

Tyrone extend their lead to six points again, but the gap could have been even wider! Somehow Louth survived a Tyrone onslaught as Ronan McNabb, Marty Penrose and Joe McMahon all had a stab at notching a third Tyrone goal, only for the post and crossbar to keep them out, but Mark Donnelly finally makes the pressure pay off with a point, Louth getting one themselves a minute later. Tyrone 2-9 Louth 0-10…

Another McEneaney point, Louth’s second in a row since McCaul’s goal at the opposite end, acts as a little warning to the Red Hands that Louth will not lie down in this match. With five points separating the teams, Tyrone still have some work to do to clinch a third successive NFL victory. Tyrone 2-8 Louth 0-9…

GOAL FOR TYRONE! It doesn’t take long for the second goal to arrive in this second half, Damian McCaul driving forward and hitting a screamer to the Louth net to put more daylight between the teams, Tyrone now leading by seven points with almost nine minutes gone since the restart. Louth get one back moments later but Tyrone are currently in control with a two goal cushion. Tyrone 2-8 Louth 0-8…

TYRONE PENALTY! But it’s saved! Peter Harte’s attempt to record his second goal of the day is thwarted by a fine save as Louth stay in the running for a positive result in the early stages of this second half, both sides having notched a point in these opening minutes, Tyrone’s coming from Niall McKenna. Tyrone 1-8 Louth 0-7…

We’ve reached the halfway stage of proceedings in Drogheda and the Tyrone camp will be pleased to find themselves four points to the good after trailing by two towards the end of the first quarter. The key score has obviously been another wonderful goal by Peter Harte who continues to produce standout performances almost every week, his efforts helping Ulster win the inter-provincial title in his last outing. Harte has notched 1-1 today so far, and we’ve had two points each from Coney and Mulligan, with Penrose and McCarron also adding their names to the scoresheet. It’s been decent stuff from Tyrone today and a similar display in the second half will see the impressive winning sequence continue intoround four of this national league series.
Half time score – TYRONE 1-7 LOUTH 0-6…

Owen Mulligan extends Tyrone’s advantage with another pointed free, but an even better score follows shortly afterwards as the brilliant Peter Harte puts one over the bar from 55 metres, giving Mickey Harte’s side a useful 1-7 to 0-6 lead entering the last five minutes of this first half. Tyrone 1-7 Louth 0-6…

Ryan Donnelly points for Louth to keep the home side very much in contention here in this NFL round three encounter, Penrose registering a fourth Tyrone wide moments later. Tyrone are leading by two points with 25 minutes gone. Tyrone 1-5 Louth 0-6…

Tyrone extend their lead in impressive fashion as PJ Quinn, Mark Donnelly, Aidan McCrory, Niall McKenna and Cathal McCarron all play their part in slicing open the Louth defence, before McCarron swings over a superb score to leave a goal between the sides, although John Devine has to pull off another great save moments later to keep the lead intact. Tyrone 1-5 Louth 0-5…

GOAL FOR TYRONE!!! That man Peter Harte has done it again, drilling a beauty to the back of the Louth net for his third goal of this NFL campaign, following superb work by Niall McKenna on 16 minutes. The young centre half back has been scoring and setting up goals on a regular basis this year, for every team he has played for! Louth respond with a point a minute later but Tyrone are going pretty well at the minute. Tyrone 1-4 Louth 0-5

Tyrone are back on track here in Drogheda as Martin Penrose slots over his opening point of the day to level the scores after 15 minutes, but it’s clear already that this isn’t going to be an easy task for Tyrone to continue their winning run. Tyrone 0-4 Louth 0-4…

Great work by Owen Mulligan, one of the players of the year for Tyrone so far, gives Kyle Coney the opportunity to record his second point of the day and the Ardboe man splits the posts in great style to leave the minimum between the teams. Tyrone 0-3 Louth 0-4…

Louth are on a good run at the moment and they hit their third point in a row through half back Finnegan, and it’s double scores here in Drogheda as Tyrone trail by two points after 11 minutes. Tyrone 0-2 Louth 0-4…
