Tyrone players celebrate after the game (© Presseye)
Both sides scored early points on Sunday but it was Roscommon who had the chance to score the game's first goal when they were awarded a penalty in the fourth minute.
But Tyrone keeper Sean Fox saved superbly down low to his right to keep the game even.
That wasn't to deter Roscommon who soon had a two point advantage.
Tyrone restored parity midway through the half with hawk-eye having to be called in to check a point that shaved the post.
But once again Roscommon forced the play and went into the break with a three point cushion.
Tyrone were quickest out of the blocks in the second period and evened things up with a cracking goal through Connor McKenna.
Both sides traded further points but it took until the 55th minute for Tyrone to take the lead and from then on, they were never behind.
Despite late Roscommon pressure Tyrone's Christopher Morris sealed it four minutes from the end with a superb point from distance, bringing the final score to 1-12 to 0-13.
Tyrone will play Mayo in the Minor Football Championship final on 22 September.
