A lucky escape for an under performing senior side as they scrambled an ill deserved one point victory on Friday evening at Coa, two late points needed to get them through.In a game which saw Coa always in the hunt, Tempo were never to ease themselves into anything which could have been regarded as a secure position, just three points ahead at the turnover and unable to stretch any further in front over an increasingly edgy second half.
And Coa put the cat among the pigeons five minutes from time when they grabbed the lead with a goal and point, Tempo finally shaking off their lethargy to pull the game out of the fire with two late, late scores.
By no means a confident performance but still another win collected to keep the side top of the table.
The minor side blew a terrific opportunity to clinch a place in their league final when the lost out to Irvinestown by a single point, in a make or break game for both teams.

Team is looking good enough though to give the upcoming B championship a real rattle.
