Electric Ireland Ulster MFC Final

Donegal 2-12 Tyrone 1-8

Monaghan 4-10 Fermanagh 0-8

Donegal made it two wins from two to take over the leadership of Section A in the Ulster MFC, defeating Tyrone by 2-12 to 1-8 at windswept Ballyshannon.

Playing into the wind in the opening half, they held possession and frustrated the visitors, until Davin McKeown, Liam McGeary and Lorcan McMurray shot Tyrone into a 0-5 to 0-2 lead.

But a Colm O Dochairtaigh goal just before the break sent the sides in level at the break, 1-3 to 0-6.

O Dochairtaigh grabbed a second goal just 30 seconds after the restart, and the home side swept forward in waves of attack.

Long range scores from Pauric Devine, Eoghan Ban McNelis, Max Campbell and O Dochairtaigh opened up a nine points lead, before McMurray pulled back a Red Hand goal.

But that was to be just a token score, as Barry Ward’s side confidently saw out a comfortable victory.

Monaghan opened their campaign with a convincing 4-10 to 0-8 win over Fermanagh at Clones.

Monaghan started strongly with well taken scores from Killian Kearns and Cian Rafferty, and it was Kearns who broke through for a goal after eleven minutes to give his side a six points lead.

Odhran McGovern and Daire Chapman were on target for Fermanagh, but points from Darcy Foy and Charlie Mone sent the home side in with a 1-6 to 0-3 interval lead.

Sean Hanratty netted a second Farney goal seven minutes into the second half, and they dominated from there to the finish.

Michael Duffy, Odhran McGowan and Daire Chapman did pulled back Erne scores, but it was all over for them when Kearns netted his second goal, from a penalty.

A third three-pointer late on from Rafferty completed a positive afternoon for Monaghan as they got off to a winning start.
