Following on from Round 2 , the Juniors resumed action in the Shield and were comprehensive winners at home to Celbridge. This is a formidable Wexford outfit and the opposition were welcomed with a barage of attacking play that left them agast at the fluency of the bokerboys. Ian Moran ran in 4 tries, Gavin Byrne 2, Sean Stafford 2, and one each from Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Conor Fenlon, Ruairi Devereux and Eoin Roche. Eoin kicked four conversions and Sean Stafford kicked two.

Leinster Senior Rugby Development Shield Semi-Final

Wexford C.B.S...........34
St. Brendan's, Bray.......0

This was a real test and no more than we expected. It was all hands on deck as St. Brendan's came at us with full force. Wexford took their best shots but stood firm. Playing against a strong breeze Wexford spent most of the half defending. There was heroic tackling from every player, The back row covered huge amounts of ground snuffing out attack after attack. The front 5 were strong at scrum time and rucked superbly. Having played without the ball for large portions of the first half, it was Wexford who almost crossed for the first try, but Marco Pons was held up inches short of the line.
Turning around at half time 0-0 was a real tonic for the team as we believed that playing in the opposition half was going to open doors for us. Some astute tactical kicking from out-half Colm O'Corcora got us in good field position, and quick ball from a ruck saw Dylan Joyce-Ahearne set Peter Furlong into the corner for the first score. 5-0 Wexford.
Again Wexford played the conditions and put huge pressure on the visitors defence, Ciaran Kavanagh scored twice, Collie Joyce-Ahearne and Marco Pons all had tries. The excellent ball carrying of Michael Maguire, Johnny Craciun, Mark Tackas and Marius Kraska pounded the opposition into submission.
Dylan Joyce-Ahearne added a conversion. The final nail was put in by Dylan Lawlor who stole through on a quick line-out to get the touchdown, Colm O'Corcora converted to bring up a handsome scoreline of 34-0.
The final now beckons and we are ready , whoever it may be!

Wexford C.B.S; Sean Ryan, Peter Furlong, Colm Browne, Rodger Duggan, Lee Harpur, Colm O'Corcora, Dylan Joyce-Ahearne, Ciaran Kavanagh, Dylan Lawlor, Michael Maguire, Marius Kraska, Johnny Craciun,
Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Mark Tackas, Marco Pons.
Subs; Vitalik Tsapchuk, James Roche, Kevin Phillips, Dean Keogh, Graham Kehoe.

Leinster Senior Rugby Development Shield Quarter Final

Wexford C.B.S…….48
New Ross C.B.S……13

Wexford were prepared for a tough game as New Ross had been tipped to go along way in this competition. The benefit of having played a hard encounter the week before stood to us and the physical battle thatwas anticipated did not cause us any concern.
Star of the day was Colm Browne, who electrified the pitch with his pace and angles of running and eventually finished with a hat-trick of tries. Colm O’Corcora made his return to the side a memorable one too with two well taken scores.
The forwards have played with relentless commitment to date, excelling at ruck time and carrying into contact at tremendous pace. Front row forward Ciaran Kavanagh was rewarded with two tries and Marco Pons crashed over for one. Colm O’Corcora added three conversions and Eoin Roche kicked one.
Scoring 48 points in devastating fashion has giving a great deal of confidence to this side, and now the sights are firmly set on a semi-final date with St. Brendan's, Bray.

Wexford C.B.S.; Eoin Roche, Peter Furlong, Rodger Duggan, Colm Browne, Colm O’Corcora, Dylan Joyce-Ahearne, Lee Harpur, Michael Maguire, Dylan Lawlor, Ciaran Kavanagh, Marius Kraska, Johnny Craciun, Marl Tackas, Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Marco Pons.
Subs; Kevin Phillips, Dean Keogh, Vitalik Tsapchuk, Patryck Zaborsynski, Graham Kehoe.

Leinster Senior Rugby Development Shield Round 2

Wexford C.B.S……………………..24
Pres. – De La Salle, Bagnelstown……6

An excellent performance by scrum-half Dylan Joyce-Ahearne sealed a well deserved Leinster Schools Senior Development Shield quarter-final win in Carlow on Mar.8th
He scored a quality try in each half, his second three minutes in the second half putting the result beyond doubt, and capped a man of the match show with a third five pointer in the 47th minute for a 19-6 lead.
Pres-De La Salle promised much in the opening 35 minutes and went in front with two penalties, but never managed to crack a resolute C.B.S. defence IN WHICH Dylan Lawlor, Simon O’Carroll, and the scrum halfs brother Collie excelled. Midfielders Rodger Duggan and Sean Ryan were equal to any threat with the former driving and setting up suberb second phase ball.
Wexford took control when Mark Tackes blocked down an attempted clearance and Dylan Joyce-Ahearne was on hand to score his first try under the posts. Eoin Roche kicked the conversion.
C.B.S. added to their tally when Dylan collected at the base of the scrum, broke to the right and beat three backs to score. Eoin Roche again added the conversion. Joyce-Ahearne completed his hat-trick following some driving work by the pack.
Wexford ended on a high when after four phases involving Johnny Craciun, Mark Tackas, Sean Ryan and Graham Kehoe, young Collie Joyce-Ahearne got to carry over for the final score.

Wexford C.B.S; Gavin O’Connor, Michael McQuillan, Sean Ryan, Rodger Duggan, Lee Harpur, Eoin Roche, Dylan Joyce-Ahearne, Ciaran Kavanagh, Dylan Lawlor, Graham Kehoe, Simon O’Carroll, Marius Kraska, Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Johnny Craciun, Mark Tackas.

South Leinster Juvenile Hurling 'C' Report Semi-Final

Wexford C.B.S................8-10

THE Juvenile hurlers of Wexford C.B.S. qualified for the South Leinster Hurling ‘C’ final after this comprehensive victory over reigning champions Grennan College of Thomastown (Kilkenny) in last Tuesday’s semi-final played at Pairc Charman.
C.B.S led by 3-6 to 1-1 at half-time and never let up in the second half as they built on their lead and never let their opponents into the game.
However it didn’t look like that in the first minute when Thomastown scored a blistering goal. The Wexford lads took a while to settle but they had Mikey Coleman and David Tormey to thank for two goals in the fifth and seventh minute.
These were added to by two fine points by team captain Nicky Lawlor and then in the 13th minute Mikey Coleman scored a fine individual goal after some very hard work and the gap between the sides began to stretch.
Thomastown replied with a point but Tormey, Lawlor (two) and Dylan Hynes raised white flags before the half-time whistle.
CBS were keen to keep up their strong performance and not let the Kilkenny boys back into it. They were true to their word as the first three scores of the second half were C.B.S. goals.
Mikey Coleman registered his hat-trick, David Tormey placed Stephen Cullen who first timed the ball to the net and Dylan Hynes beat the keeper with a rocket-like shot.
This snuffed out any possible threat from Thomastown who it must be said never threw in the towel and had two pointed frees in the middle of the half. However C.B.S replied with converted frees from Stephen Kearney and further goals from Tormey and Lawlor wrapped up the game.
Everyone hurled very well on the Wexford C.B.S. side who have won all their four games to date this season. They face a very stiff test in the South Leinster final in Abbey College of Ferrybank in Waterford who steamrolled all their opponents en route to the final.
The C.B.S squad has worked very hard in training and are improving all the time. However an even higher level of performance will be required in the final in order to bring the cup back to the Boker.
Wexford CBS: Rob Donnelly (Buffers Alley); Conor Fenlon (Glynn-Barntown), James Somers (Faythe Harriers), Daniel Lynch (Faythe Harriers); John Hamilton (St. Martin’s), Ciaran Kirwan (Faythe Harriers), Jack Murphy (Faythe Harriers); Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers, 1-4, 1 ‘65, Captain), Luke Byrne (Faythe Harriers, 0-1); Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers (0-3, 1 free), Dylan Hynes (Clonard, 1-1), Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); David Tormey (Clonard, 2-1), Stephen Cullen (Clonard, 1-0), Mikey Coleman (St. Martin’s, 3-0).
Subs: Mark Kavanagh (Clonard) for Redmond, Stephen Rossiter (Shelmaliers) for Tormey, Luke Lambert (unattached) for Cullen, Conor Coleman (St. Martin’s) for Mikey Coleman, Padraig Rossiter (St. Martin’s) for Lynch, Liam Rockett (Shelmaliers) for Kearney, Dillon Dixon (Blackwater) for Byrne.

South Leinster Juvenile Hurling 'C' Report Round 3

Wexford C.B.S. ................6-12

A dominant third quarter which resulted in a comfortable win against Ramsgrange put the juvenile hurlers of Wexford C.B.S. into the South Leinster semi-final as group winners. This victory made it three wins out of three and C.B.S. now face the formidable task of Grennan College, Thomastown in the last four.
This game was played in splendid weather conditions on a perfect sod in the Faythe Harriers pitch in Pairc Charman.
Ramsgrange started very impressively and had two points inside the opening five minutes whereas it took C.B.S.  a while longer to get into their stride. David Tormey settled the nerves when he pounced for two goals in the 9th and 11th minutes.

Tormey and Stephen ‘Turk’ Kearney (four) helped C.B.S. extend that lead with fine points from play. Ramsgrange tagged on two more points before the half ended and that score at the interval was 2-6 to 0-4.
It was in the third quarter that C.B.S. pulled away from their opponents. David Tormey turned provider as he set up Luke Byrne and Stephen Cullen for goals and he added his third in the 44th minute to seal the game.
Ramsgrange thundered back into the game with two goals of their own but points from Kearney and Rob Donnelly maintained the cushion for the Wexford town school.
Best for C.B.S. were John Hamilton, Joe Redmond, Luke Byrne, Stephen Kearney, Dylan Hynes and David Tormey while team captain Nicky Lawlor gave a very commanding display at centre-back.The semi-final versus Grennan College is fixed for Pairc Charman on Tuesday March 29th at 12.30 p.m.

Wexford C.B.S.: Liam Rockett (Shelmaliers); Padraig Rossiter (St. Martin’s), James Somers (Faythe Harriers), Dillon Murray (Clonard); John Hamilton (St. Martin’s), Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers, Capt.), Jack Murphy (Faythe Harriers); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers), Luke Byrne (Faythe Harriers, 1-0); Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers, 0-7, 3f), Dylan Hynes (Clonard, 0-2), Rob Donnelly (Buffers Alley, 0-2); David Tormey (Clonard, 4-1), Stephen Cullen (Clonard, 1-0), Stephen Rossiter (Shelmaliers).

South Leinster Juvenile Hurling 'C' Report Round 2

Wexford C.B.S. .....................................9-13
Bridgetown V.C. ....................................2-8

GOALS, and plenty of them, helped Wexford C.B.S.’s juvenile hurlers make it two wins out of two in the South Leinster ‘C’ championship last Friday in Rathangan as they overcame Bridgetown V.C.
C.B.S. had built up a commanding lead of 6-5 to 2-4 at the break and never looked back as the goals kept rolling in. The second half fade out against New Ross V.E.C. in the first round was always on their minds so the players kept their shoulders to the wheel and saw out the game.
Bridgetown, to their credit, never gave up and fought until the end but the C.B.S defence was in no mood to let them back into the game. At the other end, the Wexford town school had too much guile and took their scores very impressively.
Early goals from David Tormey and Conor Coleman set C.B.S on their way and when Stephen Cullen flicked the ball to the net after 15 minutes the score stood at 3-4 to 0-3.
David Tormey finished the half very strong by adding a brace of goals as Luke Byrne and Dylan Hynes worked hard out the field to supply the inside men.
Liam Rockett was moved outfield in the second half and he scored two goals – one a fine ground stroke – while C.B.S scored some lovely points from flowing passing movements.
Bridgetown struck for two goals in the third quarter but the game was beyond doubt at that stage as C.B.S ran out comfortable winners. Their next game is against Ramsgrange C.S. Their best performances came from Rob Donnelly, Nicky Lawlor, Daniel Lynch, Joe Redmond, Dylan Hynes, Luke Byrne and David Tormey.
Wexford C.B.S.: Liam Rockett (Shelmaliers, 2-0); Padraig Rossiter (St. Martin’s), James Somers (Faythe Harriers), Daniel Lynch (Faythe Harriers); John Hamilton (St. Martin’s, 0-1), Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers, Capt.), Rob Donnelly (Buffers Alley, 0-1); Luke Byrne (Faythe Harriers, 0-4), Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); Mikey Coleman (St. Martin’s), Dylan Hynes (Clonard, 1-0), Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers, 0-1 ‘65); David Tormey (Clonard, 3-2), Stephen Cullen (Clonard, 2-1), Conor Coleman (St. Martin’s, 1-2).
Subs: Kevin Birney (Glynn-Barntown, 0-1) for Tormey, Michael McNulty (Buffers Alley) for Lawlor, Dillon Murray (Clonard) for Somers.

South Leinster Juvenile Hurling 'C' Report Round 1

Wexford C.B.S. ............................................4-11
New Ross VEC .............................................4-4

A second half fade-out almost cost Wexford C.B.S. dearly in this opening round game of the South Leinster Juvenile C hurling championship in O’Kennedy Park last Thursday.
C.B.S led by 3-7 to 0-2 at the break but failed to score until the 18th minute of the second half as the New Ross lads tore into the game and brought the score back to 3-7 to 3-3.
There was not a puff of wind out amid perfect hurling conditions. New Ross VEC opened the scoring with a point but CBS got into the scoring groove as the half wore on. Rob Donnelly gave midfielder Luke Byrne a lovely pass and he equalised before a neat passing move between Joe Redmond, Luke Byrne and Mikey Coleman resulted in the latter firing over the bar.
David Tormey lashed home a goal after 14 minutes and Stephen Cullen made it 1-3 to 0-1 shortly afterwards. New Ross replied with their second pointed free before Tormey (three) and Nicky Lawlor had points.CBS finished the half very strongly and added two goals when Adam McDade pulled the ball to the net and Ciaran Kirwan’s long range effort went all the way to the net.
So it was 3-7 to 0-2 on the turnaround. New Ross grabbed their lifeline entering the final quarter the initiative was firmly with them. However, CBS had earlier moved Stephen Kearney from the goal and he added a point and then Joe Redmond pointed with a fine effort from a tight angle.
David Tormey’s second goal after a fine solo run finally killed off the New Ross challenge but nevertheless it was tight until the end. The victors mixed some super hurling with some silly hurling and will need to sharpen up a considerable amount for the rest of the group games against Bridgetown and Ramsgrange. Best for CBS were James Somers, Daniel Lynch, Nicky Lawlor, Luke Byrne and David Tormey.
Wexford C.B.S.: Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers, 0-1); Conor Fenlon (Glynn-Barntown), James Somers (Faythe Harriers), Daniel Lynch (Faythe Harriers); Dylan Hynes (Clonard), Ciaran Kirwan (Faythe Harriers, 1-0), Jack Murphy (Faythe Harriers); Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers, 0-1), Luke Byrne (Faythe Harriers, 0-2); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers, 0-1), Mikey Coleman (St. Martin’s, 0-1), Robert Donnelly (Buffers Alley); David Tormey (Clonard, 2-4), Stephen Cullen (Clonard, 0-1), Adam McDade (Faythe Harriers, 1-0).
Subs: Liam Rockett (Shelmaliers) for McDade, Conor Coleman (St. Martin’s) for Cullen, McDade for Kearney, Kearney for M. Coleman, John Hamilton (St. Martin’s) for Donnelly.
