LYNCH MOB; Padraig's equaliser leaves Manchester United's chances of progress hanging bya thread.
Byline: GARETH FULLERTON
CO Tyrone held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw last night to all but end the Red Devils' hopes of SuperCupNI glory.
Padraig Lynch's second half penalty earned the county boys a spirited point at the Riada Stadium in Ballymoney.
Lynch scored after Cameron Crook was adjudged to have been fouled inside the area to cancel out Daniel Kavanagh's opener for United.
It leaves Martin Gallagher's (circled) Tyrone team fifth in the Junior standings - the top four after today's round of games will proceed to the Super-CupNI semi-finals.
United are labouring in 13th spot after two draws - they were also held by Strikers on Monday.
Tyrone's joy was mirrored by Co Londonderry after they claimed a famous win over Arsenal at Anderson Park. Captain Corey McLaughlin's first-half goal sealed a 1-0 victory over the Gunners in Coleraine.
McLaughlin was coolness personified as he latched onto Shea Curran's through ball before rounding the keeper and firing home.
Co Londonderry drew their opening game against Plymouth Argyle on Monday and will come up against Co Armagh this evening (5.30pm).
Elsewhere, Rangers were on scoring form once again with a 6-1 rout of Bracknell Town.
