Tempo u14 girls played their 3rd game in a week, 4th in 9 days but kept the best to last as they won the league title, beating Ederney 4-8 to 3-7 in Brewster Park.
Tempo were on top in the first half and had goals from player of the match Cadhla Bogue (2) and Ursula Fee, with a steady supply of points from Kayleigh West, Cadhla, and Cora McCaughey. One of these goals coming from great pressure exerted on Ederney defence by Laura Cassidy. Further back Sineve Cassidy, Megan Hamilton, Anna Marie Kennedy and Laoise McNally were working very hard to keep a strong Ederney attack at bay, while a feature of the game was Tempos abilty to win Leahs strong kickouts to either wing. Half time score 3-5 to 1-5.
Tempo again started 2nd half strongly with Cora scoring a great goal. Mid way through the half Tempos character was tested when they lost the ever reliable Sineve Cassidy to injury. However, they answered this test with strong running from Ursula, Kayleigh, Cadhla and AnnaMarie and this resulted in further points from AnnaMarie and Molly Bogue, who had a great game and was regular outlet for Tempos defence.
Ederney did manage 2 second half goals but Tempo done enough in the end to thoroughly deserve the trophy. Strong performances from any number of Tempos players as Cadhla was deservedly awarded player of the match and Ursula picked up the cup.
