Watch: Scenes As Monaghan Minor Keeper Scores FROM PLAY In Ulster Championship

It took extra time to separate the minor footballers of Derry and Monaghan in the preliminary round of the Ulster Championship on Saturday.

Derry, who were seven points down at half-time with just a single score on the board, fought back to parity by the end of normal time - 0-12 to 1-9 the scoreline.

The Derry fightback was completed in extra-time, where they edged it by a point through goals from Eoghan Hawe and Johnny McErlain. The game finished 2-14 to 2-13 at Celtic Park.

One of the highlights of the game though came from Monaghan goalkeeper Ryan Farrelly. Remarkably, Farrelly managed to score from play just before half-time of extra-time. The point game following a dead ball situation.

The Magheracloone player's score put Monaghan up by four points.

Monaghan goalkeepers are mavericks when it comes to bombing forward. Farrelly's score came just over a year after his Monaghan senior football counterpart, Rory Beggan, scored from play for his club Scotstoun against Clontibret. Though, Farrelly faced some far tougher defence than Beggan.

Highlights of the weekend's game were broadcast on TG4's Monday night GAA show.
