The minor team opened their bid to reach the second division league final on Saturday evening with a comprehensive victory over St Gerards, the game played at Maguiresbridge. The team were never to be under any appreciable threat at any stage of the hour and they were to race in for a couple of goals in mid first half to establish a solid platform for the turnover. St Gerards did have a brief rally in the early minutes on the restart but this challenge quickly evaporated and Tempo ran out very comfortable winners in the end. Obviously a much tougher nut lies ahead on Friday evening when they face Lisnaskea in the final play off. In the final itself Ederney will be the opponents.
The annual Mass for deceased club members was said on Friday evening, preceded by a march from the club pavilion to the church with players in club colours.

Later in the evening there was a social get together at the club pavilion, this much enjoyed by all who attended and gratitude is expressed to those who provided the barbecue.
