TYRONE AND DERRY will meet in the Dr McKenna Cup final after both counties safely navigated their respective semi-finals this afternoon.
Derry were a point behind with three minutes to play before a James Kielt goal propelled them to a 2-12 to 1-13 triumph over Monaghan.
Kielt’s goal, along with points from Neil Forester and Niall Loughlin turned the game on its head at the death and dumped out the Farney.
Derry will face Tyrone in the pre-season decider on Saturday night in Newry. Mickey Harte’s outfit were relatively comfortable throughout their 0-14 to 0-11 victory over Fermanagh today.
Aidan McCrory, Ronan McNabb, Colm Cavanagh, Niall Sludden, Lee Brennan, Ronan McNamee and Cathal McShane all returned to the Red Hand’s starting line-up, while Sean Cavanagh was an unused substitute.
Frees from Tomas Corrigan and Sean Quigley kept Fermanagh in touch, but Tyrone stretched clear after the break.
Peter Harte kicked four first-half frees before he was withdrawn at the interval, while Darren McCurry posted 0-6 in an impressive outing.
