The senior team will have Ederney as the opposition in the championship relegation game which is scheduled for the weekend after next. Ederney were well beaten by Derrygonnelly in their quarter final replay and will be disappointed by their limp performance but that will presumably have no impact on how they approach this upcoming contest. They, like ourselves, will be exceptionally keen to avoid having to head into a last ditch relegation battle in a make or break final match. Just a hard struggle in prospect against a team who have always proved to be exceptionally tough opponents.The juvenile side had a dress rehearsal of their Wednesday evening championship meeting with Belcoo when they travelled to the same opposition on Sunday morning for a league tie.
This proved to be an exceptionally high scoring affair, Tempo hitting two first half goals from Caolan Corey and Barra McStravick to lead by five points at the interval. They were to shoot a hat trick of goals in the second half, Lorcan McStravick, Eoin McCaffery and Michael Mc Phillips all finding the net. Yet despite this tide of goals the team was to finish in arrears, Belcoo scoring a five points success. On Wednesday hopefully there will be a more tightfisted Tempo defensive performance.
