After the disappointment of being unable to field a side the previous week the senior side bounced back in encouraging fashion last Friday evening to score a deserved away victory over Lisnaskea.

This was just the second league win of the season but it will boost morale and instil belief that with a few more successes the climb out of the relegation zone can be made.

The key to the win was a whirlwind restart to the second half, five points inside a blistering five minutes. ‘Skea did pull level with just a short time to go but Tempo finished off on a strong note.

Not so good though for the Erne Cup side who slipped to another defeat, they went down to visiting Teemore on Saturday evening.

Damage done in the opening half as they coughed up a hat trick of goals. There was an improved showing on the resumption, two goals collected to narrow the gap but Teemore always held the edge and had plenty to spare at the end.

Saturday June 30th will see the running of the annual Paul and Orla Bogue underage tournament. Preparations are well advanced for a tourney which has proved to be exceptionally successful since its inception over a decade ago.

And the club has been busy making preparations for the upcoming Ulster final, the village bedecked with green and white flags and streamers.

In particular best wishes go to  Aidan Breen who has been playing a significant role in Fermanagh’s progress to the final and obviously all in the club earnestly hope that he and his team colleagues will have a triumphant afternoon in the St Tiarnach’s cauldron in Clones.

Because of the final there will be no Tempo Og programme this Sunday.

An information meeting to update members on the progress of the lower pitch development scheme was held on Monday night last, the works have been advanced considerably over the past four to five weeks.

The Erne Cup side travelled to Derrygonnelly at the weekend but lost out to the home side by a narrrow margin. They had been under the cosh for the opening half and were adrift at the interval but on the changeover there was a distinct pick up in their play and they were able to make significant inroads into the Harps lead.

However a penalty goal for Derrygonnelly got the leaders bak on track and though Tempo did notch an answering goall, this came a shade too late to have an impact on the final result.

There was disappointment that the senior side had to call off their Sunday fixture with Kinawley, circumstances dictating that a side could not be fielded. A team meeting saw a commitment from the panel that a fresh start would be got underway beginning with what will probably be a double fixture list this coming weekend.

The senior side had a league tie on Friday evening with Lisnaskea, both sides sited deep in the relegation zone so this was an especially important game.

It didn’t turn out well for the Maguires as they tumbled to another defeat, five points adrift of the Emmetts and this reversal leaves them rooted at the foot of the league ladder.

In some respects it was a decent enough display, the side racking up a fifteen points tally, but overall there could be no complaint about the result, Lisnaskea generally looked that bit better assured and had they snapped up a few of the several goal chances they created, they would have had a more comfortable winning margin at the finish.

Better news for the Erne Cup side who scored an emphatic victory over St Patricks on Saturday evening. Fielding perhaps their strongest lineout of the season the team was to be well in control of things from the outset and they were never in any real difficulty.

Lotto jackpot for last weekend was not won the numbers drawn being 1 14 19 and 21. Winners of the two £25 prizes were  Liam Donohue and Brendan McGrade. Next Saturday’s jackpot now stands at £2 800.

Team on duty for June 9th and 16th is Gerard Fee, John Pakenham and Daryl Keenan and team on duty for June 23rd and 30th is Damian Breen, Conor King and Eamon Cassidy.

Heartiest congratulations go to all involved with the county senior team on their historic victory over Monaghan last Sunday and in particular to our own club man Aiden Breen who again put in a terrific personal display, his two excellent first half points helping the side to open the game on a hugely promising note.
