Club Notes 10.09.18

The week past began on a positive note with the under 17 side chalking up a five points home victory over Teemore and the league points earned assures them of a place in the second division league decider, the opponents here in all probability being Lisnaskea.

Against Teemore the critical score came just prior to the interval, a goal poked home from close range by Conor Magee and while Teemore put in a very resolute second half effort to recover lost ground, some stout hearted Tempo defensive work held the Shamrocks at bay.

A few more league fixtures to be played before the final itself though there would be the possibility that given the fact that the both the league finalists have been decided, those games may fall by the wayside.

Senior championship football for next season was secured when the team scored a three point victory over Teemore in the relegation semi final played at Derrygonnelly on Saturday afternoon.

It was a patchy enough opening half performance however, Teemore enjoying the greater share of the attacking play so Tempo, only three points adrift on the turnover would have been happy enough in the circumstances.

Much , much better from the side in the second half as they upped the intensity of their game and at one stage they had pushed out into a six point lead.

There was to be an anxious run in over the closing minutes however as Teemore staged a spirited rally but the Maguires hung on for what was in the end a fully deserved success.

Unhappily no joy for the ladies team as they lost their intermediate championship final at Lisnaskea to a more experienced Derrygonnelly side.

From the outset the Harps looked to be the stronger squad and they made the pace from the start reaching the interval holding the lead and they were not to be overhauled.

A goal in each half from Blaithín Bogue did keep the team in the hunt but in the end they were to be five points adrift.

Among those who played exceptionally well were defenders Ciara Kennedy and Cliona Bogue and others to put in a solid effort were Roisin McCusker and Shannon McQuaid.
