Donegal 2-19 Tipperary 0-15

Tipperary will rue two missed goal chances in a frustrating afternoon for Tom McGlinchey's men as Donegal won their round three qualifier at Croke Park.

The Munster men were right in it at the break, just one point behind at 0-7 to 0-8, thanks to four points from Declan Browne and an injury-time effort from Eamon Hanrahan.

Browne let a potential goal chance slip through his fingers on 51 minutes and woe befell the team when under-21 Damien O'Brien opted to shoot with his right foot just three minutes later, when a punch past Tony Blake would have seen a certain goal.

Browne had squared the match for the fourth time on 41 minutes and ended the game scoring 0-9, with scores off both feet and from his fists.

Points from Michael Hegarty, Brian Roper and Adrian Sweeney finally clicked the Ulster side into gear and when Brendan Devenney soloed past marker Robbie Costigan on 60 minutes and rifled past Philly Ryan for a goal, the green and gold booked their place in next round's draw.

Roper cut through the Tipp defence on 71 minutes to net Donegal's second goal and put a flattering look on the score line.
