Sunday, June 23, 2013

There were three games in the Electric Ireland Minor Football and Hurling Championships on Sunday across three provinces. See details below.

Ulster GAA Minor Football Championship Semi-Final
Tyrone 1-12 Down 0-10

Tyrone advanced to their fifth Ulster Minor Championship Football final in seven years with a five-point win over Down at Kingspan Breffni Park.

Down were 0-6 to 0-5 in front at half-time, but Tyrone hit four unanswered points after the restart to move 0-9 to 0-6 ahead. There was just a point between the teams heading into the closing stages, but a Tyrone point from Rian McHugh put them two clear, before Stephen McGrath hit 1-1 in the closing stages to wrap up the win.

Tyrone will play either Cavan or Monaghan in the Ulster final on July 21.

Connacht GAA Minor Football Championship Semi-Final
Sligo 1-5 Roscommon 0-12

Roscommon's bid for a third consecutive Connacht Minor Football title remains on course after they defeated Sligo by four points in Castlebar on Sunday.

Roscommon led 0-5 to 0-2 at the interval, and they extended this lead after the restart before Kevin McDonnell's goal brought Sligo right back into the game. The Yeats County got back to within one of their opponents, but Roscommon held their nerve and finished with points from Diarmuid Murtagh and Diarmuid McGann to take the victory.


Leinster GAA Minor Hurling Championship Semi-Final
Laois 1-14 Wexford 0-13

Laois advanced to their first Leinster Minor Hurling Championship final since 1991 with a thrilling four-point win over Wexford at O'Moore Park on Sunday. Pat Critchley's side will play Kilkenny in the provincial decider, after the Cats defeated Dublin on Saturday.

Stephen Bergin's goal after 15 minutes put Laois 1-2 to 0-3 ahead, but Wexford lead at the interval, 0-8 to 1-4. A tight second-half ensued, but Laois finished very strongly, and points from Darragh Cripps, John Lennon and Ronan Delahunty sealed a memorable win for them.
