Holders Derrygonnelly Harps and Tempo Maguires booked their places in the semi-final of the Quinn Building Products SFC as the championship swung into action tonight at Brewster Park.

The Harps produced a dominant last 20 minutes as they saw off neighbours Devenish to get their quest for a fifth successive title off to a successive start.

Derrygonnelly had enjoyed the better of the exchanges in the first half as points from Conall Jones, Kevin Cassidy, Ryan Jones and Garvan Jones helped them into a 0-06 to 0-02 lead, the two Devenish points coming from the boot of goalkeeper Tom Treacy.

John O'Flanagan then landed a free for the Garrison men to leave three between the sides at the interval, 0-06 to 0-03.

And Devenish went on to make a fine start to the second half as O'Flanagan banged over two points before Joe O'Brien hit the equaliser to make it 0-06 apiece.

Deerrygonnelly though regrouped and with Ryan Jones, Conall Jones and Garvan Jones all to the fore they went on to regain the initiative.

Indeed, the Harps went on to hit the final seven points of the game with Conall Jones, Garvan Jones and Garvan McGinley all among the points as they ran out convincing 0-13 to 0-06 victors.

In the second game at Brewster Park, Lorcan McStravick was outstanding as Division Two side Tempo deservedly secured a five point win over Teemore.

McStravick hit seven points from play and also had a first half penalty saved by Shamrocks goalkeeper Sean McNally as the Maguires moved into the last four.

McStravick hit three points in the first half with the impressive Aidan Breen knocking over four, including three from play, as Tempo went in at the break leading 0-07 to 0-06.

And that lead could have been greater but McStravick saw his spot kick saved by McNally who also denied the attacker from the follow up.

Liam Martin knocked over three frees for Teemore in the opening period while Colm McNally, Ruairi Maguire and Cian McManus also chipped in with scores to leave one in it at the interval.

Indeed, Martin tagged on a free early in the second half and this was followed by a point from play by Niall Clarke to put Teemore one up, 0-08 to 0-07.

However, Tempo hit back with the only goal of the game when they were awarded a second penalty.

The hard working Tiarnan Bogue was fouled and Damian Kelly stepped up to smash the ball past McNally.

McStravick then followed up with two fine points from play as Tempo turned a one point deficit into a four point advantage.

Teemore did continue to battle as Martin and Aaron McManus added points but they could not find the goal they required and with Conor Meehan slotting over and McStravick scoring another excellent point to bring his tally to seven, Tempo ran out 1-12 to 0-10 winners.
