Champions Errigal cruise into semi-finals

Defending champions Errigal Ciaran breezed into the semi finals of the Hunky Dorys Tyrone championship when they were emphatic 4-15 to 1-4 winners over neighbours Augher at Healy Park last night.

As the final scoreline suggests, this was one way traffic all the way as the holders sent out a signal that they aren't going to give up the O'Neill Cup without a fight.

Tommy Canavan converted a couple of frees to send the champions on their way and it took Augher twenty minutes to open their account via Jamie Donnelly.

Three minutes later though, great work from Tyrone star Ciaran McGinley saw him lay on a goal for teenager Mark Kavanagh. Sixty seconds later it was game over when McGinley found the net himself to leave it 2-7 to 0-1 at the break, Augher's cause not helped with the fact that Tyrone midfielder Aidan Cassidy had to go of injured.

It was more of the same from the champions in the second half as they scored at will with Canavan, Sean McKenna and former Tyrone defender Davy Harte all tagging on points.

Peter Harte then capped a fine individual display with an outstanding goal before McGinley provided another assist for substitute Damian McDermott to get goal number four. Corner back Colly McKenna got a late goal but it was only a consolation score.
