Tyrone Maintain Fine Run Of Form.
Five out of five wins in the league and promotion already secured with two matches remaining. That is how it reads after today’s hard earned victory over a dogged Galway side. Tuam has never been the easiest of venues to get points from and Tyrone were made to fight all the way today as they strove to maintain their perfect start to the season.
Once again there were many positives in the display as the excellent record of not conceding a goal in any of their league game so far was maintained while Peter Harte made it five goals in five games. This was always going to be a tough game for Mickey Harte’s side and they were made battle all the way. Tyrone faced a real test of character after the second half sending off of PJ Quinn but when they had to dig deep that was exactly what they did. Stephen O’Neill, Colm Cavanagh and Niall Mc Kenna all made vital contributions to their side’s success as the manager was able to demonstrate the strength and quality of his bench.
The highlight of the day for many of the large travelling contingent of supporters had to be the trio of magnificent points from the boot of Kyle Coney inside the space of a couple of minutes. The Ardboe ace was chosen as man of the match following an excellent all round performance which was rounded off by four superb second half points. Coney and Owen Mulligan worked their socks off all afternoon as Tyrone’s first line of defence and last line of attack. The 2008 All Ireland Minor winner was a constant source of danger throughout the game and was marked by three different players at different stages of the game. However it did not seem to matter who was picking him up as the corner forward displayed unerring accuracy from play to land the scores that in the end made all the difference between winning and losing.
Tyrone can now look forward to their remaining two home league games in the knowledge that they will be contesting the Division Two league final at the end of the month. However having won ten out of ten games so far this season you can bet that the players will be keen to make it eleven out of eleven when they face Meath next weekend in Omagh.
