Dywer double fires up Warwickshire
Warwickshire travelled to Dungannon and left with both points from their Division 3A clash with Tyrone, thanks to a whirlwind start to the game which ultimately earned them a 3-16 to 2-14 victory.
It was a disappointing opener for the Red Hand men, who fell 15 points behind early on after conceding three goals and despite a strong comeback they fell short.
Ian Dwyer hit the net twice for the visitors' first two scores, and Gary Lennon also fired home a three-pointer as they raced into a 3-9 to 0-3 lead.
Bryan McGurk and Aidy Kelly pulled back Tyrone goals as the home side started a revival just before half-time, but they trailed by 3-11 to 2-5 at the break, with Damien Casey converting four frees for the Ulster side.
Tyrone continued to press after the restart, with Casey and Kelly hitting the target and in a half-hour spell they outscored the visitors by 2-11 to 0-5.
But after being reduced to 14 men through a second booking for Tiernan Morgan, the home challenge faded and Warwickshire closed out the game to get their campaign off to a winning start.
- Warwickshire weren't the only team from across the Irish Sea to record a win yesterday as, in Division 3B, Lancashire beat Fermanagh 2-25 to 1-11.
