Last Saturday saw an intriguing clash in the 2015 Masters series with the reigning All Ireland Masters Cup winners Galway coming up against last year’s Masters Shield winners Tyrone. It was Galway who got off to a flying start which saw them bag 1-2 before Tyrone got out of the blocks. Tyrone however were able to reel the westerners in by the end of the first quarter with goals from Mark Gallagher and Mark Donnelly. Galway pushed ahead with four points from play but three Tyrone points in quick succession just before the break saw the teams go in at half time level on a score line of 2-3 to 1-6.

Tyrone made the early running in the second half aided by Stephen Dooher who recorded a personal tally of 1-2. The home team pushed 4 points ahead and had a chance to close the game out when they were awarded a penalty by referee Martin Sludden. However Conrad Quinn saw his strike rebound off the crossbar to Galway’s relief.

Sensing the game slipping from their hands Galway rallied and pulled back to within a point of Tyrone who were now under severe pressure at the back. It took some resolute defending in the closing minutes for Tyrone to come away with a slender victory on a score line of 3-7 to 1-12 leaving them unbeaten so far this year having recorded previous victories over Cavan, Antrim and Leitrim. They will travel to Westmeath next Saturday for their next game.
