Tyrone Vocationals safely made it through to the Ulster semi final after a five point success over Cavan at Donagh on Thursday afternoon. It was a contest that the Red Hands were always in control of and after a few anxious moments at the beginning of the second half they never looked back to make it through to a clash with defending champions Monaghan. Tyrone led 0-8 to 0-2 at half time with Shea Coney, Enda McGahan, Cillian Barkley, Sean Hackett and centre half back Daniel McNulty all on target. Four minutes into the second half Cavan were awarded a dubious penalty after what looked like a textbook tackle from Ruairi Mullan but justice was done when Shane Kelly’s effort hit the post although James Bradley was fouled from the rebound for another spot kick. This time defender Conor Moyna hammered the ball to the net to leave it very much game on. Tyrone didn’t panic though and McGahan brilliantly flicked the ball to the net before Mark Bradley finished in style for a three pointer as well to give Tyrone much needed breathing space. Cavan hit back with a Cian McEnroe goal but Tyrone kept their composure despite the harsh sending off of Mullan in the 49th minute.
