A very successful weekend for the club with three victories chalked up, two of these in underage grade.
Congratulations go to the under 17 squad who won the second division league title at Brookeborough on Saturday afternoon when they edged out a slender one point victory over Lisnaskea.
They had a sluggish enough opening quarter to the game, falling several points in arrears but as the game progressed they eased their way back and critically they were to score an absolutely crucial goal on the stroke of the interval, to move into the lead.
Over the third quarter their lead was to be extended and they looked to be coasting to a relatively easy win but the Emmett’s battled back and in the end it was a nerve jangling one point affair, the win all the more satisfying because of the tight nature of the finish.
Second game on the Brookeborough double header was the senior relegation semi final with ‘Skea again the opposition.
This was to result in an emphatic Tempo victory with a winning margin in double figures. However it didn’t look at all promising over the first quarter as ‘Skea opened the sharper with a series of points.
Critically for Tempo they poached a breakaway goal which kept them in the hunt and heading towards the break the team showed more enterprise.
Just a point adrift on the resumption, Tempo then struck a massive blow with a rapid fire two goal surge that established a commanding advantage and the game was essentially wrapped up, a fourth goal notched near the end as the Emmett’s challenge fizzled out.
Next up is the relegation decider against Erne Gaels on Saturday in Derrygonnelly, and given the way they dispatched Lisnaskea the team should be going in believing that they can survive in the top flight for next season.
Third win of the weekend was the league win for the under 13 side who had plenty to spare over visiting Devenish. Tempo had already secured their slot in the leaguef final but Devenish needed a win to keep their qualification hopes alive so they came in determined mood.
Tempo however have been in buoyant form all season and they had a solid lead at the finish, they now take on Teemorenext weekend in the final.
