THERE WAS NO separating Tyrone and Donegal in the EirGrid Ulster U21 football championship tonight with Lee Brennan converting a ’45 to rescue a draw for the home side in extra-time in Healy Park in Omagh.

Eoghan Ban Gallagher had put Donegal on the brink of victory before Brennan responded with the levelling score as the teams finished all square at 0-14 apiece.

Donegal were ahead 0-5 to 0-4 at the midway mark of normal time but Tyrone moved ahead 0-9 to 0-7 during the second half with David Mulgrew impressing.

Michael Langan (2) and Tony McCleneghan pushed Donegal ahead by a point before Tyrone went in front thanks to points from Johnny Harkin and Brennan.

Yet Langan knocked over the point to ties the teams at 0-11 apiece, sending the game into extra-time where a winner could not be found.
