Tyrone minors made it three wins from three starts in the Ulster Minor League when they defeated Donegal this afternoon at Garvaghey. The final score line of 2-13 to 1-7 would suggest this was an easy win but for long periods of the game there was little between the sides. Indeed with less than twelve minutes left only a point separated the teams with Tyrone leading 1-8 to 1-7.
However Donegal failed to muster another shot on target during that period and Tyrone added 1-5 to their total as they totally controlled the last quarter of the game.
The opening half saw plenty of good quality football from both teams with Daire Gallagher prominent for Tyrone while Darragh O’Connor, who played with the Donegal under 21 side that defeated Tyrone, showing up well for the visitors. O’Connor finished with 1-5 of his side’s total and could have had a second goal but for a brilliant save from Tyrone goalkeeper Ronan Mc Geary.
Tyrone began brightly and were 0-3 to 0-1 in front after six minutes with their points coming from Lee Brennan, Che O’Donnell and Daniel Lowe. However the Tir Chonnail lads began to get control around the middle of the field and twenty four minutes in were 0-5 to 0-3 in front. The home team were struggling but with half time approaching they hit 1-3 inside three minutes to lead at the break 1-6 to 0-5. Midfielder Ruairi Mc Glone showed considerable skill and composure as he finished his goal chance superbly.
The second half saw Donegal maintain their good form as Tyrone appeared to lack the urgency and endeavour of the Derry game. An early goal from Darragh O’Connor drew the scores level but although Donegal created a few chances it was the home side that produced the better finish. Mickey Donnelly made several switches and will be pleased at the impact his changes made to the pattern of the game. A couple of spectacular points each from Padraig Mc Girr and Michael Lynn, as well as a great score from corner back Colm Byrne put Tyrone in pole position. The game was over as a contest when Stephen Mc Grath finished a low shot to the net to leave the final score 2-13 to 1-7 in favour of Tyrone.
