Donegal failed in their bid to win back the Ulster Minor Championship title and were well beaten by Tyrone, in the Ulster final in Monaghan yesterday afternoon.
Dara Kelly and Rose Boyle scored the goals, one in each half, as Tyrone proved much too strong for the Donegal girls in what was a repeat of last year’s final, also won by the Red Hands.
First half goals from Loraine McSorley and Michaela McGuigan (2) meant that Tyrone had the title all by wrapped up at half-time as they lead by 13 points, 3-9 to 1-2. Kelly netted the Donegal goal with Roisin Curran and Allanagh McDonnell scoring the points.
The second exchanges were marginally closer with Donegal adding another goal and three points to their tally with St. Eunan’s Rose Boyle, scoring 1-1, while Roisin Curran and Eimear O’Sullivan scored the points.
Rebecca Barker scored the Tyrone goal as the O’Neill girls cruised to an easy victory and back to back titles, both at the expense of Donegal who last won the title in 2010.
Donegal scorers: Rose Boyle, 1-1, Dara Kelly, 1-0, Roisin Curran, 0-2, Alannagh McDonnell, Eimear Sullivan 0-1 each.
