South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ Quarter-Final

Wexford CBS..........................................3-10
Grennan College (Thomastown).............1-3

A strong second half performance saw Wexford CBS through to the last four of the South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ championship when they overpowered the Thomastown students in Pairc Charman last Friday.
CBS led by 1-5 to 1-2 at the break but they eventually wore down their Kilkenny opponents with a burst of scores in the third quarter while the Wexford defence only conceded one point in that second period.
Sean Stafford grabbed the first goal for the Boker boys but CBS couldn’t shake off the Grennan lads despite dominating possession. The heavy conditions ensured the going was tough but both sets of players ensured the match was a sporting one.
CBS took off in the new half when corner forward Eoin Roche added a goal to his three points from the first half. Michael Lawlor tagged on two points while Joe Coleman and Jamie McDonnell also added points.
The full-forward line for CBS proved to be lethal as they finished with all but three points of the team’s total. Joe Coleman sealed the win when he finished a well worked move in the 57th minute by lashing the ball to the net.
Best for CBS, who are managed by Wexford senior footballer Killian Kehoe, were John Forde, Evan Dunbar, Jamie McDonnell, Ciaran Kirwan and Eoin Roche. Next up is an away semi-final versus Colaiste Eoin Hacketstown.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Cian Doyle (Sarsfields), Liam Barry (Sarsfields), Adam Roche (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields 0-1), David Tormey (Clonard); Michael Lawlor (Volunteers 0-2), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields), Dylan Hynes (Clonard); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 1-5), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-1), Joe Coleman (St. Martin’s 1-1).
