Wexford  1-7

Tyrone  0-6

As Tyrone welcome Armagh to Healy Park on Saturday manager Gerry Moane has called for a more clinical attacking approach from his players on the back of a first league loss at the weekend. Tyrone came up short against Wexford in a low scoring contest at Enniscorthy.

Four points between the sides at the end as Tyrone missed a series of opportunities and were guilty of unforced errors over a low key hour of football. Wexford relied heavily on frees scoring 0-5 from the dead ball although as the Tyrone boss explained “They took those chances, we didn’t” prompting a call from Moane for improvement.

Tyrone turned in a decent shift at the back. Laura Kane returned to the side for the first time this season and had little to do throughout the game. It was 0-3 apiece at the short whistle as the home side stifled the previously free flowing Tyrone. Niamh O’Neill, Maria Canavan and Emma Jane Gervin account for the Red Hands’ first half scores.

After the break Tyrone pulled away with good combination play teeing up Caitlin Kelly and Gervin for early points but despite this bright start Tyrone failed to punish to build momentum. Several very scorable chances were missed and good opportunities dropped short. This wastefulness was to prove costly in the end.

Doyle tagged on two points from soft frees  as Neamh Woods, Chrstiane Hunter and Aimee Daly dealt well with the threat of Doyle and former defender turned full forward  Marie Byrne. Slaine Mc Carroll and Emma Brennan continued to carry the ball well into the opposing half but the scores would just not come.

Doyle edged Wexford ahead with her fourth free before another free was turned to the Tyrone net by Kate White. Tyrone threw everything into attack in the latter stages but just could not manufacture the scores needed despite enjoying plenty of the possession.
