Good night’s work for Donegal, Armagh, Tyrone and Derry as they reach Dr McKenna Cup semi-finals

THE LINE-UP for the semi-finals of the Dr McKenna Cup was completed tonight as the pre-season competition in Ulster moved towards the knockout stages.

The last series of games in the round-robin tonight saw six fixtures played around the province with Donegal, Armagh, Tyrone and Derry all advancing.

In Section A, Donegal ran out 1-20 to 1-12 victors against Cavan to nail down their spot with Down’s comprehensive victory by 4-18 to 1-5 over Queen’s University proving immaterial.

Armagh finished top of Section B, grinding out a late victory by 0-13 to 1-9 over Monaghan. The other match here saw Antrim see off St Mary’s University by eight points.

And in Section C, Mickey Harte saw his Tyrone team claim a six-point success over Fermanagh to secure a last four place with Derry managing to claim the best runner-up position, aided by a 1-20 to 0-7 triumph against the students of UUJ.

The semi-final ties on Sunday will see Donegal take on Armagh and Tyrone face Derry.
