Chilean side O’Higgins had far too much for County Tyrone, winning 6-0 at the Coleraine Showgrounds.

Brazil side Osasco had to settle for just the one goal, defeating American side Strikers 1-0 in Portrush.

Two other county sides suffered narrow defeats, in what was a difficult day for the local teams in the Premier section.
