Tyrone win Division 2 title

Red Hands add Division Two league title to McKenna Cup

Tyrone added the Division Two title to their McKenna Cup success with a 1-17 to 0-15 victory over Cavan at Croke Park.

The Red Hands are now unbeaten in 13 matches in 2016 following the victory over Terry Hyland's side.

Tyrone were always in control of an entertaining match, and went into the break 0-11 to 0-08 up after Sean Cavanagh, making his 100th league appearance for his county, kicked the final point of the half.

Ronan O’Neill then scored the only goal of the game on 46 minutes with cool finish following Mattie Donnell's break from the gainline to give Mickey Harte’s side a six-point lead.

Moments later, Cavan’s Liam Buchanan was shown a black card for a late tackle on Justin McMahon.

David Givney then saw a fizzing drive hit the crossbar and go over for a point to make the score Tyrone 1-13 to Cavan's 0-13, as the Breffni sensed a way back into the match

Tyrone's Mattie Donnelly was shown a red card for a second yellow on 66 minutes, but by then Tyrone led by five points, and Harte's side closed out the match with the minimum of fuss to wrap up the victory, Harte's 166th win in his 249th match in charge.

Tyrone, whose title is their first at senior level since their 2008 All-Ireland victory, meet Derry next in the Ulster Championship opener on 22 May.

"It's very early days. Our thoughts are all on the 22nd of May in Celtic Park. Derry is going to be a massive challenge and our thoughts are completely on that game in four weeks' time," man-of-the-match Tiernan McCann told TG4.

McCann also paid tribute to Cavan's gutsy. never-say-die performance at Croke Park.

"Cavan played until the very, very last second there," he continued.

"You can't afford to take your foot off the pedal. They gave us a really tough game earlier on in the league so we knew it would be the same again today and it went right to the final whistle."
