These two sides are well acquainted having met a number of times in under age finals in recent years. Both are somewhat underachievers on Championship day however with Belcoo having lost the past 5 first round games while Tempo, who were running away with last seasons league, suffered a shock loss to Teemore in the Championship having held a comfortable lead well into he second half they collapsed to defeat late in the game.

A Championship title is long overdue for both these clubs, Belcoo have yet to secure their first title while its 1973 since Tempo got their hands the New York Gold Cup.

In recent times it is Tempo who has held the upper hand in this contest, recording 5 wins in the last 7 meetings, in fact, they have won the last three meetings between the sides. That been said there has only been a kick of a ball in most of these encounters and another tight game is expected in Kinawley this Friday evening.

Past Meetings:

09/06/12 – Belcoo 2-9 v 2-14 Tempo

28/08/11 – Belcoo 0-13 v 2-9 Tempo

01/05/11 – Tempo 0-17 v 2-8 Belcoo

17/10/10 – Tempo 0-11 v 1-10 Belcoo

25/07/10 – Belcoo 0-12 v 1-10 Tempo

31/07/09 – Tempo 2-9 v 1-9 Belcoo

24/05/09 – Belcoo 3-10 v 2-10 Tempo

Current Form:

Tempo come into the tie on a good recent run which has seen them pick up three wins in their last four games having beaten St. Joseph’s, Devenish and Roslea propelling them to within one point of the league leaders. Belcoo on the other hand have been inconsistent throughout the year and find themselves in mid-table in of that is an extremely congested league. An impressive win over Lisnaskea was sandwiched between losses to Roslea and more recently Derrygonnelly.

Verdict:

Expecting another close affair, the game will to be up for grabs with 10minutes remaining, the side who wants it the most will win it.
