This was the match that got us into the final of the Sciath na Scol against Carrigaline. It was a wet and muddy day. We were really expected to win this match because in our last match against Togher we were slightly the better team We had to do our best to win the match so we showed no fear. We went out full-hearted. Ciaran and Michael were up for the throw and it was quickly patted down to Stephen who burst out as strong as an ox. He gave a quick ball up to Michael O’S who then gave it in to Kevin. Kevin came out with the ball and struck it as hard as he could. It dropped down on the keeper but he couldn’t get it. Goal for Ovens.  After a while then Michael scoring  a couple of points together gave Ovens an even further lead. But at the other end of the field Togher scored a couple of points. The ball came up to Ciaran who was about 30 yards out. He went for point and once again it dropped down in. Ovens 2-4 Togher 0-5

So the second half begins after our trainer John O’Shea gave us a fine chatting The ball now went straight up to the forwards when Vincent Coffey scored a fine point. The ball was staying up with our forwards. It went out for a forty-five. Michael K dropped the ball into Ciarán who struck it down bottom corner. Togher were definitely out of it now but we were under a small bit of pressure when they scored a goal. The ball went straight back up to Robert running into space caught the ball and nutmegged the keeper. After a couple of minutes the referee blew time. Ovens are into the final of the Sciath na Scol against Carrigaline. Good luck Ovens!!.
