Rea strike swings it for 'Tresk

Goals proved crucial for Tyrone champions Derrytresk as they held on to win the provincial junior title at Armagh's Athletic Grounds.

Seventeen-year-old Caolan Corr smashed in a 27th-minute goal to send them in level at 1-2 to 0-5 at half-time, after Darren Bishop and substitute Christopher Farrell had given Cremartin the early edge.

Cremartin midfielder Niall Flanagan received his marching orders for a second yellow card just before the interval, but the Monaghan men went two points up through Bishop 10 minutes from the end.

It was 33-year-old veteran Mickey Rea who sealed victory for the Red Hand champions with a 51st-minute goal.
