Congratulations to the girl’s under 16 side who became, hopefully, the first of many Maguire’s sides to reach a final in 2017. They travelled over to Donagh last midweek and scored a decisive victory to secure their final ticket.They will have to wait however before knowing who they will be facing in the decider and indeed when that game will be, as there is a play off scenario for the second place.
Managerial reputation on the line following two defeats for the Erne Cup team over the weekend with the side going down to Roslea and Kinawley.
Roslea were the visitors on Friday evening and they were to dictate most of the second half to claim the points. Over the first thirty minutes however Tempo did put in a strong showing and in fact were to push out into the lead with a breakaway goal but they were a few points adrift by the break and they never really looked like they would be able to haul themselves back as Roslea held the bulk of the possession.
On Sunday the team travelled over to Kinawley and in a high scoring affair they were again to lose out.
The home side at one stage had eased out into a sizeable lead and they looked to be heading for a facile victory but Tempo did manage a spirited revival around the threequarter mark and momentarily it seemed that they would be capable of bridging the gap .
But Kinawley pulled themselves together and they were to kill off the Tempo revival with a late scoring surge that once again left them comfortably ahead.
On the senior front, next game up after the break for the Ulster championship , is a home tie against Belnaleck, this pencilled in for Sunday.
And best wishes go to Aiden Breen and Daryl Keenan and to the county panel for Saturday’s Ulster championship game with Monaghan in Clones.
