Wexford CBS...................2-7 St. Peter’s College...........4-2
A couple of late goals denied the juvenile hurlers a victory in this well contested practise match at a bitter cold Power Park. However it was an excellent work out in preparation for the South Leinster B Championship and the Rice Cup in March.
CBS started very well with Conor Coleman somehow squeezing the ball between the posts from a very tight angle. St. Peter’s responded with 1-1 before Stephen Kearney pointed to leave the score at 1-1 to 0-2.
To prove that his first point wasn’t a fluke Conor Coleman squeezed another one over after 15 minutes but CBS were rocked with the concession of another goal shortly afterwards.
CBS dominated the rest of the half with Dylan Dixon converting a free and then came the score of the game when Liam Rockett and Conor Coleman combined to set up Stephen Kearney for a sweet point. Stephen Kearney then set up Conor Coleman for his third point to leave the score at 2-2 to 0-6 at the break.
St. Peter’s dominated the start of the second half and grabbed their third goal to build up a four point lead but Lee Busher pounced for the first of his two goals following a period of pressure after a good attacking run from Conor Coleman.
Minutes later Dylan Dixon went on a searing run but his stinging shot was parried by the keeper and Busher was quickest to react again and batted the ball over the line. St. Peter’s grabbed their fourth goal in the 56th minute and the final score of the game arrived when Darragh Rossiter surged upfield and passed to Stephen Rossiter who fired a long range point.
