Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal clinched wins in Wednesday's Ulster U21 Football quarter-finals but Down and Tyrone drew their game at Newry after extra-time.

Ronan O'Neill's sixth point of the match earned Tyrone a 1-12 to 0-15 draw with Mattie Donnelly notching the goal.

Chris McGuinness' six points helped Monaghan beat Derry 1-12 to 1-8.

Niall Smith hit Cavan's goal in their 1-13 to 1-7 win over Fermanagh while defending champions Donegal edged out Antrim 0-8 to 0-5 at Ballybofey.

Mattie Donnelly scored the only goal of the game at Newry but five Danny Savage points and three from Ben O'Reilly appeared to have won it for Down, before O'Neill's sixth earned a rematch for Tyrone at Omagh next Wednesday.

Monaghan led by 1-6 to 1-5 at the break at Inniskeen with Pete Dooney netting for Monaghan and Caolan O'Boyle (1-3) claiming Derry's goal.

Benny Herron levelled the tie inside a minute of the restart, but Monaghan scored five unanswered points with Dooney, Jack McCarron and Keith McEnaney among those on target.

Derry defender James Devlin was dismissed late in the second half following a second yellow card, as Monaghan closed out the game with some fine scores from McGuinness.

Donegal were held scoreless in the opening 23 minutes, but dug deep to register a three-point win against Antrim.

Having gone two points in arrears after nine minutes, Jim McGuinness' side scored four unanswered points to take a 0-4 to 0-2 interval lead.

Dermot Molloy registered Donegal's first score in the 23rd minute and Mark McHugh was also on target in the first half.

A brace of Michael Armstrong points levelled the tie inside five minutes of the restart.

However scores from Thomas McGinley, Daniel McLoughlin, Odhran McNicholas and Caolan McFadden paved the way for a home win.

Cavan led by 1-9 to 0-4 at half-time against Fermanagh thanks to a 14th-minute Niall Smith goal.

Jack Brady, Barry Reilly and Niall McDermott were also on target in the first half but Fermanagh bounced back with a Joe O'Brien goal inside 12 minutes of the restart.

Cavan goalkeeper Alan O'Mara made two superb saves in the second half to fend off a determined attacking display by the visitors.
