Monaghan 1-12

Tyrone 2-4

Tyrone lost their second league outing on Sunday as Monaghan proved too strong for the Red Hands who only had two scorers over the hour. Monaghan were clinical and worked the chances that came their way with some excellent performances from Rosemary Courtney, Chloe Mc Bride and Captain Muireann Atkinson.

Five points separated the sides at the end with the teams having been level five times over the course of the game but it was not a performance that will live long in the memory,

It wasn’t all doom amd gloom for the Red Hands however with the returning Maria Canavan hitting 1-4 , the goal from an early penalty. Chloe Mc Caffrey crashed in a second goal while  Maebh Corrigan, Orla Mulgrew and veteran Emma Hegarty worked hard but all too often Tyrone were second best.

Despite an early yellow card for Atkinson and that penalty it was the Farney side who recovered and built a head of steam. Tyrone failing to score for almost twenty minutes.

Courtney, Mc Quillan, Emma Clerkin and Shauna Coyle took some fine scores with the hosts showing real patience as they worked the ball into attacking positions. Tyrone were guilty of overplaying the ball and not having a shot on target.

Mc Bride pulled them four clear after the break but when Gervin’s well placed ball opened the home defence it was Mc Caffrey who closed in and beat keeper Orna Kelly, sliding the ball home. Canavan fired over the equaliser minutes later.

 Monaghan’s response was swift though as a long free from Mc Bride rattled off the crossbar and Amy Garland was on hand to poke the ball past Caitlin Donnelly from close range. Three down again Tyrone could not find a way back.

Team manager O’Kane ran the bench while Mc Bride wrapped up her scoring with a brace of points and Atkinson bookended a fine outing with the final score. Canavan did land a late free but Tyrone’s afternoon in Clones was summed up when Mc Caffrey received a red card.
