TG4 ULSTER INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI-FINAL
Monaghan 2-10   Tyrone 0-12
Tyrone exited the Ulster Intermediate championship at Smithboro on Sunday as a well drilled Monaghan made the most of their first half chances to fire in a brace of goals which ultimately proved the difference between the sides.
On a frustrating afternoon for Tyrone they just could not close that gap and paid the price for a lack of potency in attack where ten of the twelve points came from the boot of Maria Canavan.
Monaghan played a very defensive game but it worked for them and Tyrone struggled to break it down. There were good displays from Emma Mulgrew, Joanne Barrett, Clara Daly and skipper Aoibhinn Mc Hugh but this was a day to forget for Tyrone. Attention will now turn to the All Ireland series with the hope of getting a run going in it.
A brace of goals from Eabha Sherry helped send her team in at the break leading by six points after Tyrone had started brightly with three points from Canavan frees. Sherry’s first goal put Monaghan in front and her second, which came from a fine pass from midfielder Jenny Duffy, gave them something to fight for.
Tyrone struggled to find space and create clear cut scoring chances as Monaghan shut up shop. Both sides played well defensively but the lack of a goal threat proved key in the final outcome.
Meabh Malllon, Aoibhinn Mc Hugh, Maria Canavan, Aine Grimes, Jayne Lyons, Emma Mulgrew and  Clara Daly worked hard after the break but even the introduction of young star Sorcha Gormley was not enough to turn the game and Monaghan held out for a deserved win.
