Tyrone 0-10 Mayo 2-13

There wasn’t much for Tyrone to smile about at Healy Park bar an historic point from play from Tyrone keeper Niall Morgan, a first in an inter county game, perhaps though it just underscored the hosts lack of score getters as they suffered back to back league defeats.

Mayo, on the other hand, looked sharp and goals from Keith Higgins and Fionn Mc Donagh eased them to a second win on the bounce. The visitors led 1-7 to 0-3 at the break and maintained their dominance throughout the contest with Peter Harte, Lee Brennan and Darren Mc Curry among their points.

Durcan, Doherty, Moran and Mc Donagh impressed with Higgins and Keegan doing well as Tyrone hadn’t the means to haul themselves back. Plenty of work to be done by Mickey Harte ahead of a trip to Roscommon.
