Tyrone and Fermanagh will meet again in the McKenna Cup semi-finals after both qualified from Section A on Wednesday night.

Mickey Harte's Red Hands topped the group by beating runners-up Fermanagh 0-13 to 1-7 at Healy Park.

In the other match in Section A, Antrim were narrow 2-12 to 1-14 winners over Queen's University at Casement Park.

James Loughery and Brian Neeson scored goals for the Saffrons while Donal O'Hare hit 1-8 for the students.

Loughery had a chance to score his second late in the game but was denied by a superb save by Queen's goalkeeper Matthew Jackson.

In Omagh, former Tyrone player Peter Canavan returned to his old stomping ground, but despite a rousing comeback in the second half, his Fermanagh side suffered a first defeat.

Four Stephen O'Neill points helped dominant Tyrone to a 0-10 to 0-1 interval lead.

But Fermanagh's Quigley brothers brought the Erne men right back into it, Seamus hitting a string of points and Sean firing in a goal.
