Tyrone Lose Out To Armagh In Buncrana Cup Final
Tyrone 0-8 Armagh 3-10
Holders Tyrone failed in their bid to hold onto the Buncrana Cup when they lost out to an Armagh side who finished strongly to take the silverware.
The winners led by the minimum margin at the break with the help of points from Finn Campbell, James McCooe, Lewis Bellew and Shea Loughran. Liam McGeary had opened the scoring for the Red Hands with Adam Cushnahan kicking a trio of points and Shea McDermott also on traget.
Things certainly got hot and heavy in the third quarter with Tyrone being reduced to thirteen men and Armagh down to fourteen, Caolan McGinley and McDermott exchanging points prior to those sending offs. Bellew and McGeary swapped points and going into the last ten minutes the title was up for grabs with Armagh holding onto a slender 0-8 to 0-7 lead. Things then began to go wrong for the Red Hands and Loughran fired in a crucial goal for Armagh to open up a bit of daylight.
Two minutes later Fionn Toale scored another Armagh major and there was no way back for Tyrone. Davin McKeown had a Tyrone point but that was cancelled out at the other end of the field by Julian Carr before Aaron Garvey got goal number three for the Orchard lads in injury time.
