Tempo set up final meeting with Lisnaskea

Tempo 1-11; Erne Gaels 1-04


Tempo eased their way into the Target Express SFC final with a seven point win over Erne Gaels at Brewster Park tonight.

A tight first half saw John McElroy’s Tempo outfit take a two point advantage into the break and they then hit 1-05 without reply in the first 15 minutes of the second half to put the?game?out of reach for Erne Gaels.

Both sides set up defensively going into the?gameand although Tempo enjoyed the greater possession, they struggled to turn this into scores.

Ryan Lyons had knocked over the first point of thegame?for the Belleek men but Tempo responded with points coming from Daryl Keenan, Damian Kelly and Thomas Campbell.

Lyons and Daniel McGullion levelled matters with scores for Erne Gaels but a Keenan free and a Ciaran McElroy point from play saw Tempo take a two point lead in at the interval.

Tempo though dominated the third quarter as they went on to more-or-less put the game to bed.

The excellent Keenan rattled over three points, including two from play, while Ryan Bogue also banged over a score before Thomas Campbell netted.

The impressive Damian Kelly broke forward and his miss-hit shot was palmed to the net by Campbell to make it 1-10 to 0-03.

It took 20 minutes for Erne Gaels to finally register in the second half, Seamus Ryder converting a free, and then Ryder fisted a Damian Lyons centre to the net to give his side a glimmer of hope.

However, Tempo regained control of matters and Keenan rattled over a free to leave seven between them at the finish as the Maguires progress to meet Lisnaskea in the final on Saturday September 29.
