Watch: Mass Brawl Ensues During Tyrone Intermediate Club Game

An Intermediate first-round tie between Strabane and Stewartstown of Tyrone descended into farce as a tense game reached the end of normal time.

Although Stewartstown would go on to win the game 1-19 to 2-13 after extra-time, with the game already well into injury-time and both sides level, tempers frayed and a mass brawl ensued.

Bringing many more than the 30 players on the pitch into contention, it does not make for an especially positive sight.

After the chaos subsided somewhat, the referee went about dispensing the red-cards that would have surprised few gathered in Omagh's Healy Park.

With the game set to conclude after a period of extra-time, at least neither side had to wait that long to regain their full compliment of players.

Coming in the same week that Tyrone's Sean Cavanagh discussed some of the unsavory treatment he was on the receiving end of while an underage player in the county, it's not been a great week for club football in the county.
