"The Ovens boys ultimately failed in their efforts to complete the double when they had to give way to a fine footballing Carrigaline side in this F3 cracker.

The south-east boys opened brightly and were 1-2 to 0-1 ahead at the short whistle. Ovens rallied after half-time and two goals from Kevin Hallissey and Cormac McAuliffe seemed to set them up for an improbable victory but then the Carrigaline boys regrouped and three points on the trot left them three ahead at the final whistle.

Goalkeeper Louis Desmond, ably supported by Tim Murphy, David Sheehan and Kieran O'Sullivan stood out for the Ovens side."

"Go Ovens" seems to be the mantra from the Ovens fans at Páirc Uí Rinn.
