notched 1-2 to keep just three between the sides at the break. In
the second half Tyrone were awesome. The Red Hand had Lynda Donnelly
sinned binned in the 13th minute but still managed to hold the Dubs
scoreless and score seven point to deservedly win by four.

and Aileen Matthews Armagh lost to Mayo 2-13 to 2-7. The result
still means the Orchard girls qualify for the knockout stages
