Two goals in the opening 16 minutes paved the way for a 2-15 to 1-14 victory for the Red Hand County, who led for most of the game.

The opening goal on nine minutes came from a Cathal McShane shot which went in off home keeper Paddy Collum.

McShane fisted the second six minutes later from a Michael Cassidy pass.

Iarla O’Sullivan grabbed the home side’s goal in injury time but it was too late to deny Tyrone a comfortable passage to the next round.
