U.14 Footballers Reach Final

South Leinster Juvenile C Football Championship semi-final
Wexford CBS v Presentation De La Salle, Bagnelstown
McGrath Park, Bagnelstown
Thursday 26 January 2012

Wexford CBS .....................................................2-08                      
Presentation De La Salle Bagnelstown.............3-04
Despite trailing by six points at the interval the juvenile (u14 ½) footballers of Wexford C.B.S. put in a sterling second half shift packed with determination to qualify for the South Leinster ‘C’ final.
Losing by 3-4 to 2-1 at the break, it looked like a tall order for the Wexford lads even with the advantage of a strong breeze. However they held their Bagnelstown opponents scoreless in the second half while tagging on seven points themselves to earn their place in the final.
Played in McGrath Park, Bagnelstown last Thursday the C.B.S. dominated proceedings for the opening ten minutes and Shane McGrath and Dylan Dixon penetrated the Bagnelstown rearguard to pilfer two goals after six and eight minutes.
The home side were rocked but eventually got into the game and with the benefit of the wind, enjoyed enough possession to break through the C.B.S. defence to score three goals and they surged further ahead with four points.
Shane McGrath added to his tally with a pointed free in the dying minutes of the first half to leave six between the sides at the interval.
There was a marked change in the workrate and attitude of the C.B.S. players from the throw-in and they showed tremendous belief to get themselves back into the game. Resolute defending and sheer hard work meant that the Bokerboys owned the ball.
Jesse Farrell started the comeback with a great point off his left boot. Following this the Wexford lads rarely left the Carlow men’s half. Constant pressure led to Bagnelstown conceding frees which Shane McGrath punished with three fine points out of his hands.
In the 50th minute Conor Coleman kicked the score of the game with a long range point from the right hand sideline. At this stage there was just the bare minimum between the sides and the Wexford town school maintained the pressure heir and were rewarded when Liam Rockett levelled the match with five minutes to go.
C.B.S. went for the winner and midfielder Dillon Dixon gathered possession and split the posts with what turned out to be the winning point.
A strong team performance in the second half was ultimately responsible for this victory but special mention must go to Stephen Kearney, Darragh Rossiter, Shane McGrath, Michael Lawlor, Jesse Farrell and Eoin Doyle.

U.15 Soccer

The U-15 Soccer Team played Enniscorthy VC in the ¼ final of the Wicklow/Wexford School League on Tuesday. A tough game was expected from the offing.
Enniscorthy won the coin-toss. Early possession favoured Enniscorthy, they passed well and peppered Wexford CBS’s goal with numerous half chances. Wexford’s back line of Aaron Goodison, Emmet Sinnott, Eoin Doyle and Alex Lohier repelled a rampant Enniscorthy early on. Another good save from goalkeeper Shane McGrath kept the score line 0-0.
Wexford slowly began to establish themselves in the game with Darragh Rossiter breaking up play. He set up Dylan Ennis down the left wing but it came to nothing. Another tackle by Luke Redmond-Browne gave the ball to Emmett Ryan but once again the attack was smothered by Enniscorthy’s defence.
Enniscorthy were still enjoying the lions share of possession when Wexford broke up the left wing, a good pass forward from Aaron Goodison found Dylan Ennis, who was fouled attempting some neat trickery, free-kick. Eoin McDonald stepped up and fired the ball into the box, hesitation from both goalkeeper and the defence let the ball fly into the net. 1-0 to Wexford.
Enniscorthy again enjoyed more possession and played Wexford off the park for the majority of the first half. Their dominance finally paid off as a corner from the left produced a towering header to the back of the net. Wexford 1-1 Enniscorthy.
Emmet Sinnott broke up another Enniscorthy attack. Darragh Rossiter and Dylan Ennis both tested Enniscorthy’s goalkeeper late in the half. Mikey Lawlor’s efforts up front were still leaving him empty handed. Half-time, Wexford CBS 1-1 Enniscorhty VC
Wexford sub: Brendan Furlong for Emmett Ryan (injured)
Positional changes helped Wexford at last impose themselves on the game. A new midfield of Luke Redmond-Browne, Eoin McDonald, Mikey Lawlor and Brendan Furlong began to dominate. Eoin Doyle cleared an Enniscorthy attack; the Wexford lads passed and moved the ball with ease now, setting up another Darragh Rossiter chance.
Shane McGrath found Brendan Furlong in space with a clever goal-kick. Brendan and Mikey Lawlor set up Darragh again. After a goalkeeping blunder Daragh eventually passed the ball to the net. 2-1 to Wexford. Wexford sub: Dylan Dixon for Luke Redmond-Browne
Wexford were now rampant, helped by Eoin McDonald winning numerous tackles and Aaron Goodison’s impressive display at left back. A free-kick just inside Enniscorthy’s half set up Eoin McDonald again. Eoin let fly an unstoppable shoot from all of 30 yards. Enniscorthy’s keeper could only watch the ball hit the back of the net. 3-1 to Wexford
Wexford sub: Joe Redmond for Dylan Ennis
Enniscorthy needing goals pushed forward but Wexford’s back-line stood firm.
Wexford sub: Robert Donnelly for Alex Lohier
Wexford sprung another attack, Dylan Dixon broke up the left wind but it came to nothing. Brendan Furlong shot wide of the mark after creating an opening. With Enniscorthy now throwing caution to the wind looking for goals, Wexford broke away and a neat finish from Darragh Rossiter made it 4-1 to the CBS.
Wexford sub: Tony Crosbie for Mikey Lawlor
With time running out, Joe Redmond broke forward; his low cross from the right was easily cleared. Tony Crosbie had another decent chance but found his shot blocked by the Enniscorthy rear guard.
Final Whistle
Wexford CBS 4-1 Enniscorthy VC
Scorers: Darragh Rossiter x2, Eoin McDonald x2.
Good performance by both teams, however Wexford CBS will probably need to improve to advance to the final on this showing. Well done lads!

Juvenile Hurling

Challenge match: January 18, 2012
Wexford CBS.......6-5      St. Peter’s College...........7-4
A large squad of 32 hurlers made the short journey up to St. Peter’s College to play a challenge game and it proved to be a useful exercise as CBS gear up for life in the South Leinster ‘B’ championship and the Rice Cup.
CBS started very sharply and Kevin Birney pounced on a long ball from Stephen Kearney and pulled the ball to the net. Stephen Rossiter followed up with a point before midfielder Dillon Dixon ghosted in and lashed the ball to the net in the tenth minute.
St. Peter’s responded with 1-1 before Stephen Kearney found the net and CBS finished the half stronger with points from Stephen Rossiter and two from Conor Coleman.
The half time score was CBS 3-4 St. Peter’s 1-2.
CBS started the second half with an entirely new team and struggled to keep pace with St. Peter’s who scored three quick goals to snatch the lead.
However Jesse Farrell got CBS back in the match with a neat point and TJ Ferguson pulled the ball to the net in the 45th minute to help his team keep in touch.
Jesse Farrell crashed a 21 yard free to the St. Peter’s net and Dion Murphy scored CBS’s sixth goal in the 58th minute but St. Peter’s had built up too big a lead for CBS to haul them in.
However everyone got plenty of game-time and it was an encouraging start to what will be a busy few months.

Wexford CBS (first half): Shane McGrath; Danny Walsh, Daniel Lynch, Kevin Corrigan; Padraig Rossiter, Darragh Rossiter, Liam Hore; Stephen Kearney (1-0), Dillon Dixon (1-0); Gary Cullen, Stephen Rossiter (0-2), Liam Rockett; Cormac Byrne, Conor Coleman (0-2), Kevin Birney (1-0).

Wexford CBS (second half): Paul Bailey; Alan Browne, Peter Ryan, Adam Carroll; Jack Haughton, Mikey Lawlor, Chris Cowman; Jesse Farrell (1-1, 1-0 free), Lee Whelan; Lee Busher, Jack McGarry, Terry Whitty; Noel O’Brien, Cian Allen, TJ Ferguson (1-0).

Senior Soccer Semi Final Success

Wexford / Wicklow League Semi-Final

OK lads, here's the plan.
The plan worked a treat.

Dazzling Darren

Lamberts Lightning Strike seals epic win

Wexford CBS ...4  East Glendalough....3

The newly installed all weather pitch at Arklow Town FC was the venue for a thrilling Wicklow/Wexford senior soccer semi final on Thursday 12th January last.  The CBS entered the match as reigning champions and as such were slight favourites over their Wicklow opponents.  However, considering the presence of players with both county and international experience in the Wicklow team, the Wexford lads knew they were up against a quality team.  It looked like there would be little to choose between the two sides and thats exactly how it turned out..  The game began in bright sunshine with the Wexford lads completely dominating the early stages.  Keith Morrissey and Dylan Walsh caused havoc on the wings supplying dangerous balls into the excellent forward pairing of Danny Fitzpatrick and Darren Lambert.  Indeed it was the Wexford boys who scored first with the impressive Robin Dempsey getting on the end of a Dale Scallan free kick with a wonderful diving header.  Ten minutes later the Boker boys doubled their lead with great work from Lambert whose cross set up an opportunity that was neatly tucked away by Fitzpatrick.  Ten minutes before the break the Wexford boys seemed to have booked their place in the final when Lambert himself controlled the ball on the edge of the area before swivelling and firing the ball low and hard into the net.  Half time saw a seemingly unassailable 3-0 lead for the Wexford men. 
The second half, however was to be a totally different affair, as the Wicklow team came out with all guns blazing.  An early strike reduced the deficit to two and it became obvious that the Wexford boys would spend the entirety of the second half on the back foot.  It was during this period that the defence of Pierce Dooley, Dale Scallan, Peter Furlong and Jason Kearns were severely tested, yet for the vast majority of the half they dealt comfortably with the pressure being exerted.  With fifteen minutes to go however, Glendalough struck again setting up a frantic finale.  Special mention must go to Wexford Midfielder John Bridges who showed exceptional leadership when panic seemed to be setting in.  Despite the best efforts of  the Wicklow men it seemed that the CBS would hold out until with the final kick of normal time a wickedly deflected shot found its way past the unfortunate Ryan Furlong  in the goal to send the game into extra time.  The huge shift in momentum seemed to swing the odds in favour of the Wicklow team yet it was here that the true character of the CBS boys shone once more.  Despite the last minute devastation they had just suffered they immediately picked themselves up in extra time and following great work from both Morrissey and Fitzpatrick the ball found its way to Lambert at the edge of the area, who once more was unerring in his placement.  Only sixty seconds gone in extra time and the Wexford boys were back in front.  Supported by the substitutions of John Joe Brown and the excellent Evan Dunbar
the Wexford lads ensured that there would be no more come back heroics from the Wicklow team and saw out the remainder of extra time with only the odd scare at the back.  The full time whistle was met with great joy by the Wexford boys who can now look forward to a final appearance against either Enniscorhty Vocational College or  Presentation College, Bray.

U.16 Football

South Leinster Junior football ‘C’ championship

At Pairc Charman
Tuesday January 10, 2012

Wexford CBS....................................2-9 
Colaiste Chill Mhaintain...................1-7
The under-16 footballers from Wexford CBS qualified for the semi-final of the South Leinster ‘C’ championship following this recent hard earned victory over Colaiste Chill Mhaintain in Pairc Charman.
This was a tough battle from the throw-in and with both sets of backs proving to be quite solid it wasn’t surprising that the first score didn’t come until the twentieth minute as the visitors took the lead with a point. 
Defences stayed on top for the remainder of the first half and Colaiste Chill Mhaintain led by 0-4 to 0-3 at half time in quite a low scoring 30 minutes of football. Eoin Roche (two) and Sean Stafford registered the points for CBS.
However the Bokerboys were somewhat wasteful in the last ten minutes of the first half and missed two clear-cut goal chances.
Stafford levelled matters early in the second half as CBS were determined to get back into the match. Their opponents were equally as eager for that last four berth and during the third quarter points were exchanged to leave the score at 0-6 each. Dale Scallan and Nicky Lawlor were responsible for the CBS points.
CBS received a lucky break in the 48th minute when Eoin Roche’s high ball into the square was fumbled by the Wicklow town school’s keeper and ended up in the net.
Having just snatched the lead for the first time in the game, CBS were rocked when they conceded a penalty which was converted to put Colaiste Cill Mhaintain back into the driving seat entering the final ten minutes.
In spite of this considerable setback CBS started to dictate play and two points from Eoin Roche and a cracking goal from Sean Stafford secured a hard earned victory.
Best for CBS were Eoin Roche, Jamie McDonnell, Sean Stafford, Dale Scallan, CIaran Kirwan, Evan Dunbar and Nicky Lawlor. They face Ardscoil Rath Iomghain (Rathangan, Co. Kildare) in the semi-final.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Adam Roche (Clonard), Evan Dunbar (St. Martins), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Gary Murphy (St. Mary’s Maudlintown), Joe Coleman (St. Martins), Liam Barry (Sarsfields); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers),  Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-3 Capt.), Dale Scallan (Sarsfields 0-1); Joe McBride (Volunteers), Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 1-4), Keith Harpur (St Mary’s Maudlintown).
Subs: Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfields 0-1) for Harpur (32), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields) for McBride (40), David Tormey (Clonard) for Redmond (44), Darragh Rossiter (St. Martin’s) for Coleman (48), Richard Cleary (Clonard) for Barry (55).
