Hurling - First Year Final

Kilkenny 4-4 Galway 4-1

Kilkenny withstood a ferocious comeback to win the First Year Hurling League by a three point margin. It looked like they had wrapped up the victory when they were six points clear in the dying minutes but a goal by Darragh Whelan gave Galway hope and they had two late chances for more goals pulled back by the referee due to fouls.
This spirited game of hurling was entertaining from the first minute to the last. Jack O’Leary had a big say in the destination of the title with a fine total of 2-2 and he also put in some serious defending.
The game was all square at half-time (2-1 each) as Kilkenny reeled in Galway who had gone in front with goals from Cathal Kirwan and Jordan Hayes.
However the third quarter belonged to Kilkenny as Philip Rawson, Aaron Walsh and Jack O’Leary dominated. Jack O’Leary scored 1-2 and Philip Rawson’s goal looked to have sealed victory for Ben McMahon’s team.
However Galway came back into the game as Cathal Kirwan and Jordan Hayes began to exert their influence. They set up Darragh Whelan and his powerful ground stroke went to the net but those late controversial refereeing decisions meant that Kilkenny ended up as winners by 4-4 to 4-1.
Kilkenny: Ben McMahon (Capt.), Jack O’Leary (2-2), James Byrne, Aaron Walsh (0-1), Philip Rawson (2-1), Cian Rossiter, Finian Coughlan.
Galway: Cathal Kirwan (Capt., 1-1), Darragh Whelan (1-0), Jordan Hayes (1-0), Ryan Dempsey, Shane Hall, Cian O’Connor, Patsy Whelan (1-0).

Christmas Fair

A very successful Christmas Fair was held in the school gym on Friday last. It gave the pupils a chance to display and sell their crafts. Organised by Business teachers Mrs. Barry and Mr. Smith, it once again proved a very popular venue to be in on Friday last. Many parents and local primary schools visited and enjoyed the food stuffs and crafts on offer. The arrival of Santa was also a huge attraction and many took the opportunity to place their Christmas lists with him.

Under 15 Soccer

Bridgetown VC....1  Wexford CBS....7
A cold morning in Bridgetown greeted both teams. Bridgetown started the brighter of the two teams. Wexford’s back-line of Dylan O’Regan, Kevin Harte, Ryan Byrne and Lee Busher withstood the early pressure. Eventually the CBS began to gain the upper hand, their midfield of Cormac Byrne, Dylan Ennis, Matthew Creane and Mark Doyle produced numerous neat moves. Micheal Lalor had two good chances but found the side netting with both efforts. Good work from Dylan Ennis and Liam Rockett had Wexford on the attack. After an inviting cross from the right wing, Matthew Creane slide the ball to the net. Wexford CBS 1-0 Bridgetown VC
Half-Time: 1-0, Wexford Sub: Michael Kaluzny for Micheal Lalor
Wexford started the second half strong, some positional switches helped Wexford gain more of a foothold in the game, their dominance continued. However a break away from Bridgetown after a dubious offside wasn’t called led to the game leveller, Conor Coleman had no chance in the CBS goal.
CBS 1-1 Bridgetown, this only made Wexford more determined. Dominating the game now, Lee Busher produced an excellent finish to give Wexford the lead, 2-1.
Further goals from Matthew Creane, Cormac Byrne, Matthew again, Liam Rockett and Michael Kaluzny made the score an impressive, Wexford CBS 7-1 Bridgetown VC.
Wexford Sub: Cathal Kirwan for Kevin Harte
Wexford played out the remaining minutes in dominant mood.
Full-Time  Wexford CBS 7-1 Bridgetown VC
CBS: Conor Coleman, Lee Busher, Kevin Harte, Ryan Byrne, Dylan O’Regan, Matthew Creane, Dylan Ennis, Cormac Byrne, Mark Doyle, Liam Rockett, Micheal Lalor.

Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup Semi-Final

Wexford C.B.S. ...5  Naas C.B.S. ...27
Carlow was the venue for this Semi-Final and while Wexford 'were up for it', it never happened. A combination of a few things led to our downfall, but we haven't become a bad team after one performance.This was our first loss of the season and we will learn from it. Ball possession was crucial and retention of the ball when he had it was just not good enough. T CUP, was the buzz phrase of Clive Woodward, Think Clearly Under Pressure. We didn't and therefore made Naas look good, they capitalised on our mistakes amd it cost us dearly. Best on the day for us were Collie Joyce-Ahearne , who scored our try, David Kavanagh, who is having a fine season at No.7, Gavin Byrne at No.6, Conor Fenlon at No.9 and Liam Barry at No.15.
However, we do have the Development Final to come in the new year against Ratoath C.C. and also we have qualified for the Vinnie Murray Cup. So we will have competed at three different levels this season, a remarkable achievement indeed. Our name will be called out of the pot when the draw is made in the Aviva Stadium on Monday evening. In reality we are only four games away from the Top Table of schools rugby in Leinster.

Juvenile Football

Wexford CBS.........................3-9                 
Scoil Chonglais Baltinglass....

Páirc Charman was the venue for Wexford CBS’s hard fought win over Scoil Chlonglais Baltinglass in the South Leinster juvenile C championship recently. 
The Boker Boys started the strongest with two points from Leon Nolan-Cullen and Nicky Kelly in the opening ten minutes. After fifteen minutes wing forward Nathan Furlong drove a high ball into the Baltinglass net.
Further points followed for CBS from Leon Nolan-Cullen and Jordan Hayes. Baltinglass had still not registered a score when Lee Busher added a second goal with a great soccer style finish on the twenty-first minute. 
Corner forward Jordan Hayes continued the Wexford CBS dominance with two more points before Baltinglass  responded with a well taken goal and point to leave the score at the interval at 2-6 to 1-1.
Baltinglass continued where they left off in the first half with the opening two points of the second half. Leon Nolan-Cullen and Nicky Kelly added to their first half scores with a point each to increase the CBS lead.
However despite these two points the Wicklow men were looking the more threatening team in the second half they and they added three more points. The Boker Boys weathered the Baltinglass storm before substitute Shane Hall found the net to give the Wexford men a nine point cushion with five minutes remaining.
In the dying minutes Baltinglass scored two goals. However this was not enough as the Wexford town men held out to record a three point win. Best for Wexford CBS were defenders Kevin Corrigan, David McDonald and Cody Murphy who defended resolutely against any Baltinglass attack. Midfielders Mark Doyle and Jack O’Leary worked tirelessly in both defence and attack while forwards Jordan Hayes, Leon Nolan-Cullen and Nicky Kelly were always a threat in attack.
Wexford CBS: Adam Dempsey; David McDonald, Cathal Kirwan, Kevin Corrigan; Eoghan Mahon, Cody Murphy, Luke Dowdall; Mark Doyle, Jack O’Leary; Nicky Kelly (0-2), Lee Busher (1-0), Nathan Furlong (1-0); Jordan Hayes (0-4), Leon Nolan-Cullen (0-3), Lee Whelan.
Substitutes: Shane Hall (1-0) for Cathal Kirwan inj.

TY GAA Reach Programme

The Transition Years spent a very worthwhile day in Bellefield GAA Complex recently as they completed their TY GAA Reach Programme. All the boys thoroughly enjoyed their time interacting and listening to the various specialists in the workshops - Alcohol Awareness, Meditation, Mental Health, Caman Abu and Peil Abu.
However, first up for the boys who were joined by students from Enniscorthy and Gorey was an introductory talk by Paudie Butler who was aided by a powerpoint presentation with images to back up his thoughts.
He started with a picture of a huge heard of wildebeest crossing the Mara river in Africa. One million of these animals have to cross this river each year in order to survive. 99% make it. The others get caught by the hungry crocodiles that are at the river waiting for them. Mr. Butler told the gathering that their crocodiles are alcohol and drugs.
He spoke about the infinite capacity of the mind. “You have great ability; believe in it and in yourselves. Your biggest challenge is to be yourself every day. The whole world is trying to turn you into a copy of someone.
“Me, your family and your teachers are stepping stones to help you cross the river and avoid the crocodiles. This is our job as adults and it’ll be your job as adults in thirty year’s time.”
He continued: “The quality of life we have emerges from our understanding and practise of self-esteem. The way we see ourselves is the way we will be.”
Mr. Butler finished to a rousing applause from the large attendance and then the boys were split up into groups of five and went to the various workshops which lasted thirty minutes each.
Clodagh Comiskey spoke to the boys about the benefits of proper exercise, proper diet, relaxation, sleep and rest and cautioned about the “weapons of mass distraction”. “Real relaxation is relaxing the mind and the body,” said Ms Comiskey.
The boys also learning about the important of proper breathing and the many benefits of positive thinking. “Toxic chemicals are released when the body is stressed. When you think positively higher emotions are experienced.”
Denis O’Connor informed the boys that students “who are physically active for more than two hours per week show improved attention and behaviour in school.” He spoke of the importance of building confidence which in turn leads to a reduction in self-destructive behaviour.
Sport was identified as something which “often produces leaders in communities. Picture of local sports stars such as Matty Forde, Gordon Darcy and Kevin Doyle were shown on the screen and the boys asked would they know them if they weren’t involved in sport.
Kevin Waters ran the Alcohol Awareness workshop and presented the boys with information about the dangers of alcohol and cautioned them about the ill effects alcohol can have on themselves and their loved ones.
The boys also spent time out on the back pitch in Bellefield under the supervision of the Full-Time Wexford Coaches playing and enjoying Peil Abu and Caman Abu.

Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup Q-Final

Wexford C.B.S. ...25   East Glendalough....7

Another very fine performance by The Bokerboys, this time the execution was much improved. Early dominance led to a penalty by Eoin Roche after 3 mins. Roche kicked superbly from hand and pinned EGL into their own 22 for long periods.Following a few phases of pick and go, the ball finally was moved wide and winger J.J.Browne was on hand to score in the corner. Shortly after on 25 mins, Collie Joyce-Ahearne drove low and hard and crossed for another try, which Roche converted. On 32 mins. again following tremendous forwards pressure, Conor Fenlon blocked down a clearing kick, and won the race for the touchdown. Roche converted this try and added another penalty before the break. 25-0
In the second half Wexford failed to get momentum going and conceded a large amount of penalties at the breakdown area. However as usual the defence was rock solid, with The Bash Brothers in the centre, causing serious damage to each attack. EGL finally broke through on 24 mins, but that was as good as it got for them. Wexford moved up field and shut out the game.
Lots of good aspects to this performance, but still work to be done. Naas or Maynooth in the Semi-Final next week.

Team: James Roche, Steve Roche, James Byrne, Darragh Comiskey, Michael Maguire, Gavin Byrne, David Kavanagh, Collie Joyce-Ahearne (capt.), Conor Fenlon, Eoin Roche, Mickey Roche, Josh Healy, Ruairi Devereux, J.J. Brown and Liam Barry.

Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup

Wexford C.B.S....7 Wilson's Hospital....0
''Cheers guys, that was the toughest game we played all season, you know we have four Leinster players and an International'' Yes indeed you may well have Mr.Captain but Wexford won the game, and in doing so knocked out one of the pre competition favourites.
C.BS. got in some early hits and put down a marker, we would not roll over, even after a three hour trip to Mullingar. Wexford dominated the early exchanges and played deep in the opposing half for most of the first half. Having crossed the line on three occasions, Wexford could have been forgiven for believing that it was not going to be their day. However on 30 mins finally a score that could not be disallowed. Gavin Byrne was on hand to finish of some relentless bombardment of the try line. Eoin Roche kicked the conversion. 7-0.
Playing into the strong wind in the second half was going to be tough, but that's how the Bokerboys like it, tough.Our steely defence was not to be penetrated and it's rating has now gone up to Triple A status. ''Thou shalt not pass''.It was that simple. Our tackling was hard, solid and at times frightening in its ferocity.
This was a thrilling cup game and one the squad will remember for a long time.
Next week it is East Glendalough in the Q-Final of this competition. We also have Ratoath CS in the Final of the Development Cup to come also.
Team: James Roche, Steve Roche, James Byrne, Darragh Comiskey, Michael Maguire, Gavin Byrne, David Kavanagh, Collie Joyce-Ahearne (capt.), Conor Fenlon, Eoin Roche, Mickey Roche, Josh Healy, Ruairi Devereux, J.J. Brown and Liam Barry.

Senior Soccer

Wexford C.B.S. ...3   Bridgetown V.S. ...2
On Thursday 8th of November the senior soccer team managed to hold off a strong Bridgetown challenge in Wexford Celtics grounds. Wexford CBS began the game brightly and enjoyed the lion’s share of possession but were finding it difficult to create an opening against a well organised Bridgetown defence. Conor Clancy, Danny Fitz and Mark Doyle all came close to opening the scoring in the opening twenty minutes but none managed to hit the target when presented with an opportunity. Bridgetown began to find their way into the game and almost took the lead, CBS didn’t deal with a free kick crossed into the box and the ball found its way to a Bridgetown player at the edge of the box who struck the cross bar from the edge of the box. Bridgetown were now enjoying the better of the game and soon took the lead after a corner was not completely cleared by the Bokerboys and the ball landed at the edge of the box and Bridgetown’s no.10 struck a well-placed volley which found the net. This goal seemed to galvanise the home side however as the CBS came back strong and put Bridgetown under severe pressure. Danny Fitz was played in but was taken down by the keeper outside the box as he was in one on one, the keeper received a yellow and Dale Scallan came close with the resulting free kick.
The Bokerboys upped the pressure in search of an equaliser and Richie Kearney, Dale Scallan, Jessie Farrell and Danny Fitz all came close to equalising before John Bridges managed to finally to force one over the line directly from a corner kick. The second half began as the first ended with the CBS on top and looking to get the lead, Danny Fitz waltzed through the Bridgetown defence before mixing up his angles and hitting narrowly wide inside the penalty spot. Jessie Farrell and Mark Doyle were also played into good positions but were unable to hit the net. CBS soon took the lead however as Danny Fitz again ran at the Bridgetown defence before playing in John Bridges who finished neatly to give Wexford a 2-1 lead. Wexford were dominating the game at this point with Dylan Walsh running the show but may regret the fact that they were unable to double their advantage as they were wasteful with the chances they created. Dale Scallan came forward from centre back and came close again with a shot from distance. Bridgetown played a long ball forward from defence and Evan Dunbar seemed to have coped well as he cleared the ball against a Bridgetown player and over the side-line but somehow the referee decided to award the throw to the away side. From the resulting throw in Bridgetown managed to attack down the wing and square a good cross from which they found an equaliser from no. 10 again, 2-2. The goal gave the away side renewed hope and they really came back into the game, the match now was end to end as both sides went all out attack in search of a winner. Substitute Cian Doyle made a great run and was taken down by the Bridgetown keeper inside the area with less than ten to go, up stepped captain Dale Scallan who netted to put the Bokerboys 3-2 ahead. Bridgetown rallied and came back at them and struck the bar with minutes remaining. The referee blew the whistle with Dylan Walsh on the counter attack close to the away sides goal. In a three team group it is now a nervous wait for the CBS as they await the result between Enniscorthy and Bridgetown to confirm who will progress from the group.  A good victory for the CBS, as they were pushed all the way in a tight contest by a resolute Bridgetown side. Best on the day for the Bokerboys were Danny Fitzpatrick, John Bridges, Dale Scallan and Dylan Walsh.
Wexford CBS: Shane McGrath (Wexford Albion), Jason Kearns (North End), Dale Scallan (Wexford Youths), Evan Dunbar (North End), Richie Kearney (North End), Dylan Walsh (North End), Conor Clancy (Rosslare Strand), John Bridges (Wexford Celtic), Mark Doyle (Wexford Celtic), Jessie Farrell (North End), Danny Fitzpatrick (Wexford Youths),

South Leinster Senior Hurling ‘C’ semi-final

Ballyhale VC..............5-8
Wexford CBS.............0-1

THE SENIOR hurlers of Wexford CBS suffered humiliation at the hands of a far superior Ballyhale VC in the South Leinster ‘C’ semi-final recently in a very disappointing performance. The game was well and truly over at half-time when, having played with the strong wind, CBS trailed by a massive 4-3 to 0-1.
The Wexford school’s attack squandered numerous scoring chances during that first half while their Kilkenny opponents were ruthless with their chances at the other end. CBS’s sole point arrived in the 20th minute when Ciaran Kirwan gave John Bridges a pass and the later put the ball between the posts.
However, CBS were naive in defence and their attitude all the field was very poor as their Ballyhale opponents totally outhurled and outworked them.
Best on a day to forget for the Boker boys were Rob Donnelly, Ciaran Kirwan, Jamie McDonnell and John Bridges.
Wexford CBS: Rob Donnelly (Buffers Alley); Liam Barry (Faythe Harriers), James Somers (St. Martin’s), John Hamilton (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Ciaran Kirwan (Faythe Harriers), Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers); Jamie McDonnell (Faythe Harriers, Capt.) Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); John Bridges (Faythe Harriers, 0-1), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers); Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s), Eoin Roche (Faythe Harriers), Joe McBride (Volunteers).
Subs: Darragh Rossiter (St. Martin’s) for Roche, Richie Cleary (Clonard) for McBride, Mark Hayes (St. Martin’s) for Redmond, John Forde (Shelmaliers) for Stafford.

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Ever tried living on less than €1 a day ?
Many of the families who get your shoeboxes have no choice
RomaniaThey are forgotten children – victims of war, disease or poverty.  Children living on the edge, in some of the poorest countries in the world. 
Life is bleak, with little to look forward to – just hoping to have some food on the table today.  Hoping they’ll be safe tonight, and alive tomorrow. And Christmas is just another ordinary day - nothing special, no Christmas tree, no presents.  But your shoebox will bring a little hope, a lot of laughter and smiles and a practical expression of God’s love at Christmas time, for children who have very little.
No, a shoebox won’t change everything, but it will do far more than we could ever imagine, by bringing Christmas to children who have never experienced anything like it before !  And if a local leader requests it, as an optional extra, we also give a Christmas card – explaining where their box came from, about Ireland and the significance of the Christmas message.
CroatiaOver the last thirteen years, we have sent an Irish Christmas shoebox gift to more than 2,600,000 children in twenty one countries.  Now, more than ever, we are receiving requests from new communities and countries – will you help us give a child their Christmas of a lifetime, this year ?


We ask you to fill a shoebox with a range of simple Christmas gifts, and drop it off at your local drop off point before November 12th, and we will do the rest !
P1010101We check that it meets all the customs and safety requirements, seal it and send it on its way by truck or container.  In the receiving country our network of partners will deliver it right into a child’s hands – in hospitals, schools, shelters, churches, orphanages, community centres or family homes.  When the local leader requests it, as an optional extra, we will also give a Christmas card - explaining where their box came from, a little about Ireland and the significance of the Christmas story.
  Please  drop your filled boxes to Mrs. Barry or Ms. Connell before Nov.21st.

Under 17 Soccer

Wexford C.B.S. ...5 Enniscorthy V.C. ...0

Wexford CBS Under 17 side began their Wicklow-Wexford league campaign with an impressive victory away to a well drilled Enniscorthy side. In recent years Enniscorthy have proved a difficult stumbling block for the Boker boys but on this occasion the lads produced a dominant performance to take all 3 points.
The first half proved a frustrating affair for the CBS as Enniscorthy defended deep and looked to frustrate their opponents. CBS began well and controlled possession from the off, Emmet Sinnot and Mark Doyle were combining well down the left flank and creating numerous chances for the away side as Jessie Farrell, Cian Doyle and John Hamilton all went close to scoring. Both Doyle and Sinnott were firing in a number of dangerous crosses which the Enniscorthy side were struggling to deal with and Emmer went close with a good strike from range only to force a good stop from the keeper. Half way through the first half the CBS thought they had broken the deadlock only for Jessie Farrell to be marginally ruled offside as he neatly finished a Darragh Rossiter through ball. The Wexford town side continued to impress and create chances but were unable to find a first-half goal against a resolute Enniscorthy side as Richie Kearney narrowly headed over from a corner and right on the stroke of half time Jessie Farrell chipped the keeper but also saw his effort narrowly float over the bar. This left the sides level at the break 0-0.
The second half began with a renewed vigour in the CBS side as they upped the tempo in a search of that elusive goal. It did not take long to come as the boys moved the ball around nicely up front before setting up John Hamilton who took a touch before unleashing a ferocious strike from outside the box which hit the top corner to leave the Enniscorthy keeper with no chance to put the bokerboys one up. The Wexford lads now smelt blood and another goal soon followed as impressive half time sub Dylan Dixon took a nice touch before firing home from a narrow angle after good build up play from Rossiter, Hamilton and Cian Doyle to make it 2-0. A third soon followed as CBS pressure forced a corner and captain Richie Kearney rose well at the far post to nod home a Mark Doyle corner. The CBS were forced into changing centre half Lar Stoutt after he took a blow to the ribs from a tough challenge.
 A 4th goal immediately followed as the Enniscorthy side lost their composure, the referee bizarrely waved play on as the Enniscorthy keeper tried to tear Jessie Farrell’s shirt off after he had side-stepped him but Jessie managed to stay on his feet and lay the ball out to onrushing winger Dixon who netted his second goal with a lovely curling effort with the outside of the right foot. The bokerboys continued to dominate the game through the middle of the field as John Hamilton and Darragh Rossiter dominated the centre and found a fifth goal when substitute Sam Okegbile finished from close range after some good play from the left wing from the CBS. Enniscorthy almost got themselves a consolation goal only for an acrobatic save from Shane McGrath who was in no mood to relinquish his clean sheet.

Senior Rugby - Development Cup 3rd Rd.

Wexford C.B.S. ...51 New Ross C.B.S. ...3

A comprehensive victory today at Park Lane for the Seniors. New Ross fought bravely but were never in a position to cause an upset. Wexford did what was required but their execution in general was poor. Too many handling errors and poor quality of passing is not good. However their were some excellent aspects to their play when needed. If this team is to progress they will have to raise the skill level, which is well within their capabilities. Tries from Collie Joyce-Ahearne 3, James Byrne, Gavin Byrne, John Joe Browne, Jos Healy, Dylan Lawlor and Ciaran Kavanagh did the damage. Conversions were added by Dylan Lawlor 2 and Eoin Roche

Team: James Roche, Steve Roche, James Byrne, Darragh Comiskey, Michael Maguire, Gavin Byrne, David Kavanagh, Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Conor Fenlon, Eoin Roche, Mickey Roche, Josh Healy, Ruairi Devereux, J.J. Brown and Liam Barry.
Subs used: Ciaran Kavanagh, Dylan Lawlor, Richie Cleary, Tomas Barry and Dean Kehoe.

Rugby - Junior Development Cup 2nd Rd.

Wexford C.B.S. ...7   Scoil Chonglais, Baltinglass ...24

Bokerboys were out gunned by a better side at Park Lane today. Falling behind to an early try served to spur the Wexford lads into action and Captain Callum Murphy responded with a well taken try which was converted by Kevin Beirney. While Wexford battled hard and Chris Vickery carried some great ball, they struggled to act as a cohesive unit. This is a panel of  players new to the game and there is great talent among them. The Shield competition will give them another oppertunity to gain valuable experience and develop their skills and understanding of the game.

Team: Michael Lalor, Callum Murphy, Nigel Donohue, Joe Redmond, Stephen Rossiter, Johnny Hamilton, Paul Bailey, Aaron Smythe, Kevin Bierney, Jason Guerrine, Ryan O'Rourke, Calum Berry, Ken Corcoran, Chris Vickery, Eoin Hickey.

Wexford CBS 8-2 Wexford VC
Wexford CBS produced a dominant display to dispose of Wexford VC in their first game of the Wicklow-Wexford School league. The CBS got an early lead through Ryan Busher’s long ball forward which the VC goalkeeper let squirm past him to the net. Five minutes later and Wexford VC equalised. A weak punch by goalkeeper Conor Coleman fell to a VC attacker and he thumped it to the back of the net. Wexford CBS began to dominate. Michal Kaluzny broke forward at will down the flank. A neat through ball found Michael Lalor and he easily made it 2-1. Matthew Creane broke forward and produced a superb finish to the roof of the net. Micheal Lalor was played in again, another good finish made it 4-1 to the CBS. CBS’s backline of Dylan O’ Regan, Lee Busher, Alex Lohier and Ryan Busher was by now well on top. Half-time Wexford CBS 4-1 Wexford VC.
The second half began with CBS pushing forward, Dylan Ennis leading numerous attacks from the middle tried a shot from long range, goal! 5-1. CBS sub: Jack Houghton for Mark Doyle.
Michael Lalor got his hat-trick with another neat finish. 6-1.
A free-kick awarded to CBS was cleverly dispatched to the net by Dylan O’ Regan. 7-1.
CBS were rampant, Cormac Byrne playing a holding midfield roll kept the CBS strong at midfield.
CBS Subs: Cathal Kirwan for Ryan Busher, TJ Cousins for Matthew Creane.
Dylan Ennis played a nice pass to Jack Houghton but Jacks efforts were thwarted by a VC defender. Dylan O’ Regan offering encouragement at every opportunity linked up well with Jack Houghton again, unfortunately a suspect offside decision stopped Jack in his tracks. Another Dylan Ennis shot had VC’s keeper scrambling  but the crossbar came to his aid. TJ Cousins had an effort just flash wide. Wexford CBS subs: Adam Dempsey for Conor Coleman, Enda Doyle for Michael Lalor.
A rare VC break and they produced a goal. Adam Dempsey was unlucky not to prevent the attacker curling the ball to the net. CBS attacked without reward in the last ten minutes.
Full-Time Wexford CBS 8-2 Wexford VC.
Wexford CBS produced a good performance. Stronger opposition lie in wait, but with the effort shown today CBS will be there or thereabouts come trophy time.

Wexford CBS: Conor Coleman, Alex Lohier, Mark Doyle, Dylan O’ Regan, Ryan Busher, Dylan Ennis, Cormac Byrne, Michal Kaluzny, Michael Lalor, Matthew Creane.
Subs: Jack Houghton, Cathal Kirwan, TJ Cousins, Enda Doyle, Adam Dempsey, Lee Whelan.

CBS claim Keevans Cup: First Year Blitz

After a feast of football the First Years of Wexford CBS claimed the Keevans Cup (Roinn 2) in fine style last Tuesday at Parc Charman with victories over Enniscorthy CBS ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams, St. Peter’s College ‘B’ (twice) and Good Counsel ‘B’.
Coached and prepared by teachers Mr Davey and Mr Smith, the Wexford CBS students enjoyed five wins in the day-long blitz. The results of the day went as follows:
Group stages - Round 1: Wexford CBS 6-7 Enniscorthy CBS ‘C’ 1-0. Scorers: Jordan Hayes (4-1), Luke Dowdall (1-2), Leon Nolan-Cullen (1-0), Cathal Kirwan and Ben Butler (0-2 each).
Round 2: Wexford CBS 1-6 St. Peter’s College ‘B’ 0-2. Scorers: Jack O’Leary 0-3 (1 free), Ryan Busher 1-0, Luke Dowdall, Matthew Currid and Shane Hall (0-1 each).
Round 3: Wexford CBS 1-4 Good Counsel ‘B’ 1-0. Scorers: Jordan Hayes (1-1), Eoin Reck (0-2), Leon Nolan (0-1).
Semi Final: Wexford CBS 4-9 Enniscorthy CBS ‘B’ 0-1. Wexford CBS progressed to the final of the Keevans Cup with a comfortable win over the Enniscorthy CBS second team. From the throw-in the Boker Boys dominated with Jordan Hayes raising white flags with three fine points.
More points were to come from Luke Dowdall and the hard working wing forward Phil Rawson as the Wexford town students dominated proceedings. The best score of the first half came from the left boot of Luke Dowdall after he cut through the Enniscorthy defence to rifle the ball to the top corner of the net to leave the half time score at 1-5 to 0-0 in favour of Wexford CBS.
The second half was much the same as the first. Stout defending from Cathal Kirwan and David McDonald kept Enniscorthy at bay while tiresome work from midfielders Jack O’ Leary and Leon Nolan ensured that the Boker Boy forwards had a rich supply of possession. Matthew Currid burst through the Enniscorthy rear-guard to bury the ball into the back of the net after three minutes. Ben Butler and Cathal Kirwan added a point each before Luke Dowdall enhanced the Wexford school’s lead with a brace of points.
Jordan Hayes exploited some hesitant defending to add another goal to his side’s tally. Phil Rawson registered the last score of the game with a well taken goal in the dying seconds. Best for the Boker Boys in an outstanding team performance were Peter Doyle, Cathal Kirwan, Leon Nolan-Cullen, Jack O’Leary, Philip Rawson, Luke Dowdall and Jordan Hayes.
Wexford CBS: Adam Howlin (Shelmaliers); Darragh Whelan (Clonard), David McDonald (unattached), Peter Doyle (St. Mary’s Mauldintown); Eoghan Reck (Volunteers), Cathal Kirwan (Sarsfields 0-1), Jamie Thomas (St. Mary’s Mauldintown); Jack O’Leary (Volunteers), Leon Nolan-Cullen (St. Mary’s Maudlintown); Philip Rawson (St. Anne’s 1-2), Luke Dowdall (Volunteers 1-3), Ben Butler (Sarsfields 0-1); Ryan Busher (Volunteers), Jordan Hayes (St. Martin’s 1-2), Shane Hall (Sarsfields 0-1).
Subs: T.J Cousins (unattached) for Shane Hall, Matthew Currid (Volunteers 1-0) for Ryan Busher, Ben McMahon (Volunteers) for Jack O’Leary, Aaron Kinsella (Volunteers) for Eoghan Reck, Cian Rossiter (Volunteers) for Jamie Thomas.
Final: Wexford CBS 3-5 St. Peter’s College ‘B’ 0-2. The Keevans Cup winged its way back to Wexford CBS following this convincing victory over St. Peter’s College B team. CBS repeated their group game victory as they led from the start and notched up three points from Jordan Hayes (0-2) and Shane Hall (0-1) before St. Peter’s had registered their first point.
The Boker Boys responded to St. Peter’s opening score when Luke Dowdall continued his goal scoring exploits from the semi-final by thundering the ball to the back of the net five minutes before half time.
Following this Jordan Hayes added to his first point with another well taken point before Luke Dowdall pointed again. The half-time score was Wexford CBS 1-4 St. Peter’s 0-2.
CBS were in no mood to take their foot from the pedal and started the second half strongly once again. Peter Doyle, Eoin Reck and Jamie Thomas defended doggedly against any St. Peter’s attack while Leon Nolan-Cullen and Jack O’Leary dominated midfield once again. The running of Luke Dowdall, Jordan Hayes and Phil Rawson caused the St. Peter’s defence many problems.
The intense pressure from the Boker Boys paid off when they won a thirty yard free from the St. Peter’s goal. Jack O’Leary stepped up and from the placed ball struck the top corner of the goal with a bullet of a shot.
Luke Dowdall matched his first half tally with another goal and a point before the referee blew his final whistle. CBS had outstanding performances in David McDonald, Cathal Kirwan, captain Jack O’Leary, Luke Dowdall and Jordan Hayes.
Wexford CBS: Adam Howlin; Darragh Whelan, David McDonald, Peter Doyle; Eoghan Reck, Cathal Kirwan, Jamie Thomas; Jack O’Leary (1-0), Leon Nolan-Cullen; Philip Rawson, Luke Dowdall (2-2), Ben Butler (0-1); Matthew Currid (1-0), Jordan Hayes (0-2), Shane Hall (0-1).

Handball 'One Wall'

Well done to Alan Browne and Adam Walsh who competed in The World 'One Wall' Handball Championships at City West recently.

South Leinster Senior Hurling ‘C’ Round 2

Wexford CBS................6-9            Ramsgrange CS............1-8

FIVE second half goals against Ramsgrange CS in Ramsgrange ensured Wexford CBS finished top of their South Leinster Senior Hurling ‘C’ group and graduated to the semi-final of the competition recently.
The half-time score was 1-6 to 0-3 as CBS struggled to shake off their determined opponents. The home side led by 0-2 to 0-1 after ten minutes but around the quarter-hour mark, CBS eventually began to transfer their dominance on to the score board.
Points from Sean Stafford, John Bridges, Eoin Roche and Mark Hayes gave the Bokerboys a 0-4 to 0-2 lead after 17 minutes and that stretched to 0-6 to 0-3 with Stafford’s second score and point following a nice move involving Joe Redmond, Nicky Lawlor and John Bridges which resulted in a point for Eoin Roche.
It got much better for the visitors just before the break when John Bridges and Stephen Kearney combined to send in Eoin Roche for a fine goal.
Ramsgrange were still in the game at the break but as the second half went on CBS pulled away with the help of five goals. Eoin Roche got his second after a John Bridges pass and Sean Stafford set up Evan Dunbar to make it 3-7 to 0-5 after 40 minutes.
The Ramsgrange students struck back with a goal of their own but almost immediately CBS replied through Sean Stafford and soon after Nicky Lawlor and Mikey Coleman placed Evan Dunbar for goal number five.
In the closing stages Stephen Kearney did the donkey work for Sean Stafford to score his second goal with a stinging shot to the corner.
Once CBS got into their stride they were impressive but massive improvements are needed if they are to go further in this competition. They play the winner of the clash between Ballyhale VC and Colaiste Bhride Carnew in the semi-final.
Best on the day were John Hamilton, Jason Kearns, Ciaran Kirwan, Jamie McDonnell, Sean Stafford and Eoin Roche (in the second half).

Wexford CBS:
Rob Donnelly (Buffers Alley); Liam Barry (Faythe Harriers), James Somers (Faythe Harriers), John Hamilton (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Ciaran Kirwan (Faythe Harriers), Nicky Lawlor (Faythe Harriers); Jamie McDonnell (Faythe Harriers Capt.), Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); John Bridges (Faythe Harriers 0-3, 1 f), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s, 2-0), Mark Hayes (St. Martin’s, 0-1); Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s, 2-3), Eoin Roche (Faythe Harriers 2-2), Joe McBride (Volunteers).
Subs: Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers) for Joe McBride, Mikey Coleman (St. Martin’s) for Mark Hayes.

Junior Rugby Development Cup Rd.1

Wexford C.B.S....47   Bridgetown V.S ...10

A comprehensive win for the Juniors today in what was a first game for many of the players involved. They certainly acquitted themselves very well, and the future looks bright at The Boker in relation to rugby matters.
Captain Callum Murphy was on the score sheet after four minutes, when he finished of a backline move, to score near the posts. Kevin Bierney was on target with the conversion. Michael Lalor, Kevin Bierney and Chris Vickery all added firther tries before half-time. Kevin Bierney kicked another two conversions to make it 26-0 at the break.
Wexford have a big strong team, with lots of players always available to carry the ball. This pressure took its toll on the Bridgetown defense and a further two tries from Callum Murphy and one from Chris Vickery were more than enough to account for the opposition. Kevin Bierney again kickedall three conversions to bring his tally to 17.
Well done to all, keep showing up at training and keep learning. There is lots of room for improvement.
Team: Michael Lalor, Callum Murphy, Nigel Donohue, Joe Redmond, Stephen Rossiter, Johnny Hamilton, Paul Bailey, Aaron Smythe, Kevin Bierney, Jason Guerrine, Ryan O'Rourke, Calum Berry, Ken Corcoran, Chris Vickery, Eoin Hickey.
Subs: Conor Coleman, Everett Johnson, Aaron Carley, Cian Allen, Jason Dilworth.

Senior Rugby - Leinster Development Cup Rd.2

Wexford C.B.S....55   Enniscorthy C.B.S....3
A blistering start to this game saw Wexford cross the Enniscorthy line twice in the first 8 minutes. Both tries were scored by Collie Joyce-Ahearne one which was converted by Eoin Roche. This is an experienced Wexford side and they capitalised on this good start with some scintilating rugby. A powerful scrum, a rapid clean-out drive, excellence in the lineout and the swift movement and handling by the backline led to further scores from Josh Healy, Ruari Devereux, Darragh Comiskey and Conor Fenlon. Eoin Roche kicked two conversions. All this before half time and before Enniscorthy registered their first score, a penalty. Leading 36-3 at the break Wexford,were cruising.
The second half saw more of the same and Enniscorthy conceded to uncontested scrums. The result was now secure and further tries by Josh Healy, Steve Roche and Collie Joyce-Ahearne wrapped up the win. Both Eoin and Collie added a conversion each to finish off a very successful afternoons work.

Team: James Roche, Steve Roche, James Byrne, Darragh Comiskey, Michael Maguire, Gavin Byrne, David Kavanagh, Collie Joyce-Ahearne, Conor Fenlon, Eoin Roche, Mickey Roche, Josh Healy, Ruairi Devereux, J.J. Brown and Liam Barry.
Subs used: Evan Dunbar, Ciaran Kavanagh, Dylan Lawlor, Richie Cleary, Tomas Barry and Dean Kehoe.
