Tyrone 0-22

Derry 0-11

MICKEY HARTE’S 15th championship campaign in charge of Tyrone got up and running with a facile victory over Derry in Celtic Park.

The double-scores win today means Tyrone head for a heavyweight clash against Donegal in the semi-final on 18 June.

Ulster champions Tyrone had little trouble in seeing off a Derry side that were relegated to Division 3 in the spring.

Derry trailed by three points in the early stages of the second period, but Tyrone turned on the style from that point and coasted to victory.

Tyrone raced into an 0-5 to no score lead in the opening quarter, with Cavanagh (twice), Harte, Conall McCann and Mark Bradley on target.

Niall McLoughlin opened Derry’s account on 16 minutes and they found themselves 0-10 to 0-5 behind at half-time.

Derry had the lead down to three shortly after half-time with Niall Keenan, Enda Lynn and Benny Herron on target.

The Red Hand stepped things up a gear down the stretch and Darren McCurry clipped over three impressive points after arriving off the bench.

Sean Cavanagh curled over five frees during the 70 minutes, while his brother Colm and Lee Brennan rounded off the victory with late scores.
