THE opening day of the SuperCupNI proved something of a mixed bag for Tyrone.
At Limavady’s Scroggy Road Martin Gallagher’s battling Juniors were defeated 2-0 by Plymouth Argyle while the County under-17s recorded an impressive 3-1 win against Beijing Morning Star at the Ballymena showgrounds.
Star performer Andy Scott headed the Premier team into a sixth minute lead from a Sean Graham cross but the sides were level at the interval after a well struck free kick by Hi Ki.
Tyrone though kicked on in the second half with supersubs Tyler Anderson and Torigh Nicolas both netting to secure a deserved victory.
Today (Tuesday) Martin Harvey’s Premier outfit take on Chilean side O’Higgins at the Coleraine showgrounds (7pm) while the under-15s will look to bounce back from their opening day defeat when they square up to New Zealanders MS Select at Castlerock (1.30pm).
