Tyrone 0-14 Donegal 0-14

By Staff Reporter

Tyrone and Donegal must do it again after extra-time couldn't separate them in their Ulster U21 quarter-final at Healy Park. David Mulgrew, Paul Donaghy and Liam Rafferty helped the hosts to a 0-3 to 0-1 lead but Donegal led 0-5 to 0-4 at the break.

Michael Langan knocked over a '45' but Tyrone then got on top and went 0-9 to 0-7 in front.

Donegal rallied with two Langan frees either side of one from Tony McCleneghan. Johnny Harkin levelled and Lee Brennan put Tyrone in front before Langan forced extra-time (0-11 each).

Langan pointed again but Michael O'Neill replied with a shot that was tipped over by Danny Rodgers. Stephen McBrearty bagged a free but Mulgrew made it 0-13 each. McBrearty edged Donegal in front but a '45' for Brennan levelled matters again.

Tyrone scorers: D Mulgrew 0-4, L Brennan 0-3, L Rafferty 0-1, F Meenagh 0-1, M O'Neill 0-1, N Donnelly 0-1, P Donaghy 0-1, C McLernon 0-1, J Harkin 0-1

Donegal scorers: M Langan 0-6, S McBrearty 0-3, A Neely 0-2, EB Gallagher 0-1, D O'Baoill 0-1, T McCleneghan 0-1
