Social Media Reaction – Tyrone players buzzing

Connor McAliskey celebrates scoring Tyrone’s goal

The vast majority of the Tyrone players have not played in an Ulster senior final before, so it was no wonder that they took to Twitter to express their delight after yesterday’s win over Cavan.

And the Red Hands will be feeling very confident about earning victory over Donegal, considering their demolition of Cavan at Clones.

The game was close during the first 20 minutes, but Tyrone hit Cavan with two goals in the space of two minutes to give them an unassailable lead.

Cavan tried to stay in the game, but with their confidence in tatters they repeatedly got turned over, and conceded three further goals. Cavan managed to score 2-7 in the final six minutes but the result was decided long before that.

The Tyrone player used Twitter to express their delight at the result as they look forward to the Ulster final in a fortnight’s time.
