Donegal 0-18 Tyrone 1-9
TYRONE bowed out of the U21 Ulster Championship after a superb second half showing helped Donegal see off their rivals in Wednesday evening’s quarter-final replay in MacCumhaill Park.
Declan Bonner’s team started the game brightly and were 5-3 ahead when they conceded a poor goal in the 14th minute. The Donegal defence failed to deal with Lee Brennan’s free, and Ryan Coleman was on hand to fire to the net.
That goal unsettled Donegal but they regained their composure and posted good points from Cian Mulligan and Jamie Brennan to leave the sides level at the break.
Michael Langan missed a penalty for Donegal at the start of the second half, however the home county got on top and kicked some fine scores to push four points ahead of their opponents.
Tyrone were dogged, but Donegal closed the game out impressively.
The Red Hands finished the game with 13 players following the sendings off of Michael McKiernan and Nathan Donnelly as Donegal now meet Cavan in the Ulster Championship semi-final.
