GAA – Reaction From Tyrone’s League Win Over Donegal

After Sunday’s titanic clash in Omagh, Tyrone and Donegal sit in contrasting positions in Division One of the National Football League.

The 1-13 to -012 victory for Mickey Harte’s side means Tyrone have joined Dublin and Kildare on three wins out of three at the top of the table, while for All-Ireland champions Donegal, it was their second defeat so far in the competition.

Tyrone led more or less from start to finish, but the decisive period in the match was in the final few minutes of the first half when a missed penalty from Donegal's Michael Murphy was followed seconds later with a red card for the Glenswilly man following a skirmish in the aftermath.

With games at home to Kerry and away to Cork coming up, the defeat leaves Donegal facing a potential relegation battle over the next few weeks.
