TYRONE 1-9 MONAGHAN 0-8

Tyrone will meet Dublin in this year's All Ireland minor final after the Red Hand side beat Monaghan by four points in Kinawley on Sunday night last. While Clodagh Poyntz scored the all important goal, net minder Sinead Mc Vey was the Tyrone hero as she saved a penalty with just four minutes remaining.Playing with a very strong breeze Tyrone raced into a three point lead courtesy of points from Emma Conlon, Clodagh Poyntz and Shannon Quinn. Monaghan opened their account in the 12th minute when Laura Boylan fired over. Tyrone then went six ahead as Aisling O Kane and Clodagh Poyntz sent over a couple of points each. Tyrone could have actually scored a couple of goals but for a great save by Edel Corrigan from Emma Conlon and another effort from Niamh Hughes hit the post In the 27th minute Allana Hacket hit another point for Monaghan, their first score for fifteen minutes. Before the midway whistle went there was still time for Natasha Mohan and Aisling O Kane to exchange points to leave the half time score 0-8 to 0-3 in favour of Tyrone.

Monaghan had a real spring in their step at the start of the second half. Ciara Mc Anespie was unlucky not to goal as early as twenty two seconds into the half as her thunderous shot came back of the post. Monaghan plugged away and with eleven minutes gone they had drew level, Nicola Fahy, Laura Boylan (2), Ellen Mc Carron and Rachael Mc Kenna all pointing. Tyrone went back in front in the 16th minute when Poyntz pointed and then a minute later she extended her sides ead to four points when she planted a lovely strike to the bottom right hand corner for the games only goal. That was to be the last score of the match however the final quarter was pulsating stuff. Ellen Mc Carron had a goal chance saved by Mc Vey in the 19th minute. Monaghan then lost the influential Tessa Flemming with a shoulder injury. With just four minutes left the Farney side where awarded a penalty for a foul on Ciara Mc Anespie. Mc Vey who also plays for the Tyrone senior side made a double save which effectively was the winning of the game.
