Tyrone 8-16 0-7 Antrim

Tyrone recorded a resounding victory over Antrim in the opening group stages of the Ulster Under 20 championship.  The game played in Dunsilly saw Tyrone hit the net four times in each half in a ruthless display, emphasising the gulf between the sides.
Playing against the breeze, Gavin Potter and Michael Rafferty had early goal chances, before Potter fisted to the net in the 7th minute.  Oisin Gormley hit a second major for the Red Hands in the 17th minute, at the other end Ben Hughes made a vital block to prevent an Antrim goal from Enda McCartan.
Eoin McElholm registered his first goal and Conor Owens despatched a penalty as Tyrone went through the gears.  Tyrone led 4-5 to 0-5at the short whistle, Potter and Conor O’Neill both rattled the crossbar as a slick moving forward unit caused Antrim endless problems.
Cormac Devlin scored Tyrone’s fifth goal at the midpoint of the second half which followed a series of five Tyrone points.  Things got worse Antrim moments later when Cahir Donnelly received a second yellow.  A brace of Eoin McElholm goals scored within a minute of game other and Conor Owen’s second goal saw Tyrone ease to an emphatic victory.
On a day when Tyrone had eight different scorers, Conor Owens top scored with 2-6, closely followed by Eoin McElholm with 3-2 and Cormac Devlin with 1-3.

Next up for Tyrone is a home tie against Down on Wednesday week
