Tyrone marched into the last four with an impressive 2-17 to 1-13 win over Donegal in Ballybofey to set up a semi-final against Monaghan next week.
It was an extraordinary comeback from Mickey Harte's men. Donegal looked comfortable for the opening 40 minutes and led 1-8 to 0-7. However, one of those scores blatantly should not have counted.
Ciaran Thompson kicked Donegal level after 20 minutes, but bounced the ball twice in doing so. Despite a perfect view and Tieran McCann's protestations, Joe McQuillan allowed the score.

Speaking on RTE Sport, Colm Cooper criticised the policing of the rule, citing the fact it is the third time in the Super 8 that such a foul was not spotted while Joe Brolly was more critical of the referee's inconsistency.
I have to say I don't mind so much that. In the hurly-burly of a big Championship game like that the real problem is that Joe is fair too fussy as a referee he doesn't allow any physical confrontation at all and there were many times when a yellow card was given that wasn't warranted.
However, Cooper interjected that ultimately a decision like that is entirely unavoidable and it could be 'crucial.'

Mc Quillan is a poor referee!Two hops right in front of him there. How do they keep handing out games to these people

In the end, it did not hinder Tyrone who enjoyed a barnstorming final ten minutes as they outscored Declan Bonner's side 2-7 to 0-2. They will now face Monaghan in Croke Park next Sunday in a replay of their first round Ulster Championship clash.
