A refixed game for the opener of the Nancy Murray Cup saw an understrength Donegal travel to Edendork. Tyrone also had a few players unavailable but benefited from several players rejoining the squad after an absence. Within the first minute Casey Gallagher opened the scoring and Reagan Fay ran through to add another. Siobhan Donnelly was the first to strike the net for the home side who grew in confidence and composure following their fine start. Some great teamwork followed that led to some superbly worked and sweetly crafted scores.
The remainder of the game saw Tyrone produce a great display of skill and determination from players such as Siobhan Donnelly and Roisin McErlean. Defensively the Red Hands remained tight, organised and relentless in their pursuit of the ball with Cathy Jordan and Catherine Muldoon leading the charge superbly. A shell shocked Donegal knew they were really up against it and only managed a single point from Erin McLaughlin in the first half.
Tyrone used the break to give their subs a run out but there was to be no let up in the pace or the scoring rate and nine different players made it onto the scoreboard. This win will give the Red Hands confidence ahead of their game away to Mayo at the weekend.
