Tyrone Vs Cork – 2013 GAA Allianz Football League, Division 1

The good luck and triumph that Tyrone experienced during last Sunday’s win over Donegal was nowhere to be seen yesterday when a strong determined Cork side easily outclassed Tyrone who had one of those horrible days when nothing went right.

Temperatures were close to zero in Healy Park, Omagh and frequent sleet flurries blew through the strong winds which left playing conditions very difficult. Tyrone didn’t register their first score until the 18th minute from Ronan O’Neill, Stephen O’Neill and Kyle Coney soon scored again to level the board at 0-03 apiece. Cork however dominated in midfield with Graham Canty and Aidan Walsh excelling giving Donncha O’Connor and Paul Kerrigan plenty of supply and allowing Cork to extend their lead to 0-08 to 0-04 at HT.

In the second half, Tyrone only managed to score 4 further points despite dominating possession for large periods of the game and adding more attacking players. A strong, resilient Cork defence meant that Tyrone never had a chance of a goal throughout the game while many of their point chances went a-begging. Aidan Walsh then concluded the game with a couple of fine points for Cork.

Full time score; Tyrone 0-08 Cork 0-14.

It was a disappointing below par performance from Tyrone but there is nothing to panic about yet. They are virtually now safe for Division 1 football in 2014 but face the daunting task of Dublin next Saturday night in Croke Park.
