Finnegan brace downs Tyrone

Cavan 2-13 Tyrone 2-10

Two second-half goals from Conor Finnegan booked Cavan's final spot although a goal with a minute to go by Tyrone full-back Sean Molloy made it a tense finish yesterday.

Tyrone were a point up at the break but it was Cavan who played the better football in the second half. Finnegan scored his first goal after a surging run saw him leave a trail of opponents in his wake. Tyrone did hit back but Finnegan's second was the difference at the end when he side-footed home.
