Game at a glance
Man of the match
Owen Mulligan (Tyrone)
Led from the front when Tyrone were in difficulty in the first half and picked off some great points.
Peter Harte's penalty three minutes after the restart killed off Roscommon.
Has Darren McCurry done enough after 17 minutes of senior inter-county football to merit a starting berth?
Both sides could find fault with Rory Hickey, who seemed to let too much go at times.
All of McCurry's points were excellent scores but his third, from an acute angle on the left, was special.
What they said
Mickey Harte (Tyrone manager): "That penalty was a serious score for us -- if it had been saved or missed they would have risen to the challenge."
Des Newton (Roscommon manager):
"We need to get playing at a higher level in the league and that will be the first target for next year."
Wides: Tyrone 12 (6 first half); Roscommon 13 (5)

Roscommon are out, as Tyrone push for another long run in the qualifiers.
