Tyrone 1-13 0-13 Donegal

Mickey Harte speaks of his gratitude to the community after making his return to the Tyrone team in Edendork

Mickey Harte was in the Tyrone dugout as the Red Hands defeated Donegal 1-13 to 0-13 in the Barrett Dr McKenna Cup on an emotional day at Edendork.

A minute's silence in memory of the Tyrone manager's late daughter Michaela was held before the start.

A Mark Donnelly goal helped Tyrone to a 1-6 to 0-2 lead but Donegal hit eight straight points to lead at the break.

Colm Cavanagh was sent-off before the break and Donegal's Neil McGee was then dismissed before Tyrone took over.

After Donnelly's goal helped Tyrone lead by seven, Daniel McLaughlin, Dermot Molloy and Karl Lacey all contributed two points as Donegal moved ahead by the interval.

Cavanagh received his straight red card in first-half stoppage time as tempers flared.

McGee was sent-off soon after the restart and, with parity in playing numbers restored, Tyrone bossed the remainder of the contest.

Ryan McMenamin, Brian McGuigan and Aidan Cassidy were among Tyrone's second-half scorers in a game moved to Edendork after a morning pitch inspection at Healy Park.

Meanwhile, Hugh Brady's late point earned Fermanagh a 0-14 to 1-11 draw against UUJ on a game played on Kingspan Breffni Park's 3G pitch.

Mattie Donnelly's goal helped the students lead 1-8 to 0-7 at the interval.

Fermanagh responded to level midway through the second half before UUJ edged ahead again.

But Brady's late point ensured a share of the spoils as Fermanagh earned a draw in John O'Neill's first competitive game since taking the Erne County job.

The Erne men face Tyrone at Brewster Park on Wednesday before taking on Donegal at Ballybofey next Saturday.

UUJ have one point from their opening two games and they complete their Section A campaign against Tyrone at Omagh on Saturday.
