Donegal Vs Tyrone – 2013 GAA Ulster Minor Football Championship, First Round

Mickey Donnelly’s Tyrone minor side started their defence of the Ulster Minor Championship on Sunday in Ballybofey with a fine win over Donegal.

Tyrone got off to a good start following scores from captain Ruairi Mc Glone and then Galbally’s Ronan Nugent struck a fortunate goal to let them take a 1-04 to 0-02 lead. Donegal struck back with a goal of their own after the break but despite some considerable pressure in the second half and a total of 19 wides from Donegal, Tyrone progressed onto the Ulster minor championship semi final.

Full time score; Donegal 1-03 Tyrone 1-09
