Tyrone were comfortable 2-13 to 1-10 winners over Antrim at Casement to make it two wins from two in the Dr McKenna Cup.

Peter Harte grabbed first half goals for Mickey Harte’s side that ultimately was to prove decisive as they led 2-06 to 1-04 at the break. Antrim’s goal came from a Kevin Niblock penalty after eight minutes.

Darren McCurry helped himself to 0-05 for the victors, all from play, as Tyrone close in on a place in the decider.

Monaghan were comprehensive 3-16 to 1-05 winners over an understrength Donegal side in Ballybofey. It took the All-Ireland champions 28 minutes to register a score, with Adrian Hanlon bagging a goal.

Malachy O’Rourke’s outfit were 0-07 to 1-01 ahead at the break and a Keith McEnaney goal within a minute of the resumption put more daylight between the sides.

Further green flags, courtesy of Dermot Malone and Darren Hughes rounded off the rout. Kieran Hughes, with 0-05 from play, caught the eye for the Farneymen

Fermanagh dished out a 2-15 to 1-05 drubbing of St Mary’s at Brewster Park. Peter Canavan’s charges led 2-07 to 1-02 at the break, with Shane McCabe and Paul Ward finding the net. 

The latter also added four points to his tally and with Daryl Keenan contributing 0-05, the Erne county can now look forward to facing Monaghan on Wednesday to decide who will contest the final.
