Tyrone Vs Westmeath

Tyrone recorded their 4th National Football League victory of the year on Saturday night in Healy Park, Omagh to leave them comfortably on top of Division 2 and the prospect of promotion to Division 1 football a closer reality.

For me it was the least entertaining Tyrone game of 2012 to watch as the Red Hands cruised to a 9 point victory and it could have been more. The fact that Westmeath only got their first point of the game in the 28th minute gives an idea of the lack of opposition Tyrone faced and as light conversation was audible from the stands throughout the game, it was clear that the spectators weren’t exactly sitting at the edge of their seats either.

Having said that, Tyrone did what needed to be done with Peter Harte and Marty Penrose striking the back of the net and Kyle Coney and Owen Mulligan also striking points. They will face a stronger test in Tuam next weekend when they face second place side Galway but a win there could near enough guarantee them promotion. Full Time score; Tyrone 2-11 Westmeath 0-08

 Tyrone – Pascal McConnell, Aidan McCrory, Justin McMahon, PJ Quinn, Cathal McCarron, Peter Harte, Damian McCaul, Niall McKenna, Joe McMahon, Ronan McNabb, Mark Donnelly, Patrick McNiece, Kyle Coney, Martin Penrose, Owen Mulligan.

Below are some of my snaps… I have made the resolution of each photo slightly larger for better viewing from now on compared to previous blog posts.
