Paddy Bradley's 45 was fumbled to the net by QUB keeper Peter Graham

Derry moved into a strong position to qualify for the Dr McKenna Cup semi-finals by hammering Queen's at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.

Oak Leaf keeper Donal Devlin saved James Kielt's early penalty before Sean Leo McGoldrick lobbed in Derry's opening goal in the ninth minute.

Charlie Kielt hit three QUB points as Derry led 1-4 to 0-4 at half-time.

QUB goalkeeper Peter Graham dropped a Paddy Bradley free into his own net on 37 minutes as Derry took control.

Playing against his own county team-mates, James Kielt struck his third-minute penalty well but Derry keeper Devlin produced a superb save.

McGoldrick lobbed in Derry's opening goal in the ninth minute and Derry's other first-half scores came from Declan Mullan (two) plus Paddy Bradley and Conleth Gilligan.

Charlie Kielt notched three first-half points for the students while Ryan Jones notched the visitors' other opening-period score.

Derry were firmly in control two minutes after the restart as keeper Graham dropped Bradley's 45 over his own goal-line.

The goal appeared to deflate the students as Derry took complete control.

QUB went close to notching a consolation goal as PD Savage hit the Derry crossbar with three minutes left.
