Tyrone lost by one point to Dublin on Sunday in a game that saw some fine football at times but some awful stuff in equal measure. The home team was shockingly poor in the opening few minutes as Dublin banged in two goals in their first two attacks. Tyrone looked shellshocked and all at sea but it got worse when the Dubs midfielder Michael Darragh Macauley ghosted in behind a static defence to bag a third goal on sixteen minutes. At that stage Dublin were 3-3 to 0-3 in front and coasting. It seemed only a matter of how much Dublin would win by.

Tyrone did manage to reduce the gap to six points at the break but were also guilty of some horrendous wides that could have reduced the gap even further. An early Dublin point after the break was the ideal start for the light blues but Tyrone dug deep and rattled off the next five scores on the bounce to narrow the gap to two points. Dublin steadied the ship with three scores of their own but when tyrone were awarded a penalty suddenly it was game on. Referee Marty Duffy blew for the penalty following Dublin goalkeeper Sean Currie’s foul on a Tyrone forward. Strangely the referee took no other action while Peter Harte found the net with the kick to put Tyrone back in the game.

There were some frantic moments and fine scores in the closing minutes that saw Tyrone draw level before a late score from Diarmuid Connolly sealed the win for Dublin and with it a place in the league semi finals. Final score Tyrone 1-15, Dublin 3-10.
