Juvenile Hurling

Wexford CBS..............................2-2
St. Peter’s College ‘B’.................1-4

This game was played in Baltic conditions in Power Park and a late goal from Jordan Hayes clinched victory for CBS after a very entertaining game.
The home side struck for an early goal following indecision in the CBS defence. However CBS gradually got on top but found it very difficult to get scores. Cody Murphy converted a free in the 9th minute and moments later Jack O’Leary did great work to make room for Cormac Byrne to split the posts.
It got much better for CBS when Jack O’Leary pulled on the ball and his powerful shot found the net which levelled the game at 1-2 each. CBS had plenty of chances for scores but failed to take them.
That was the score at half-time when both sides made changes to their teams.
The cold conditions got to the players as the scores dried up. St. Peter’s surged ahead with two points to lead by 1-4 to 1-2 entering the closing stages of the match but Jordan Hayes pounced on the ball following a scramble in the goalmouth to clinch victory.
CBS face Enniscorthy CBS in the first round of the South Leinster Juvenile B championship next Wednesday.
Best for the Boker boys were: Kevin Corrigan, Cormac Byrne, Shane Pierce, Nicky Kelly, Jordan Hayes and man of the match Jack O’Leary.

Adam Howlin (Shelmaliers); Danny Walsh (Faythe Harriers), Kevin Corrigan (Blackwater), Kristian Bunici (Faythe Harriers); Cormac Byrne (Capt.

South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’Final

Ard Scoil Rathangan....................1-13
Wexford CBS................................0-5

A dominant wind assisted first half by Kildare school Ard Scoil Rathangan was enough to see off any hopes of Wexford CBS claiming the South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ title at Eire Og, Carlow last Friday.
The Wexford lads were trailing by 1-9 to 0-3 at the break and found it difficult to handle the bigger and better Kildare students. They racked up the points rather too easily and had the CBS defence in bother with a sharp attacking unit led by Stefan Lawlor.
The CBS forwards found it very hard to get possession and all they had to show for the first half were three points by Joe Coleman, Sean Stafford and Jamie McDonnell.
Any hopes that the wind would lead to a change in fortunes for the Boker boys were quickly dashed as Rathangan cleverly kept control of the game. CBS tried their best to get back into the match but their efforts were well contained by the Kildare defence.
Sean Stafford notched a second point and Eoin Roche got the fifth point for Wexford CBS but they needed goals to cut the deficit and chances were few and far between.
Corner-back Jason Kearns is the only team member sitting the Leaving Certificate in June so this team will be largely intact next year and if they increase their efforts a South Leinster title is within their grasp.
Best on the day for the CBS - coached by Wexford senior footballer Cillian Kehoe and Peter Kirwan - were Evan Dunbar, Jamie McDonnell and Sean Stafford.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Adam Roche (Clonard), Liam Barry (Sarsfields), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields); Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfields), David Tormey (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields, 0-1), Joe Coleman (St. Martin’s, 0-1), Sean Donoghue (Sarsfields); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields, 0-1), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s, 0-2), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields).
Subs: Conor Fenlon (Glynn-Barntown) for Doyle, Emmet Fox (Crossabeg-Ballymurn) for Lawlor.

Juvenile Hurling - Challenge Match

Wexford CBS..............................1-6
St. Peter’s College ‘B’.................1-3

In their first match of the season, the juvenile hurlers took on the St. Peter’s College ‘B’ team in a highly competitive challenge game played in poor conditions.
Despite the sticky pitch and the light rain, both sets of players gave 100% commitment which was very encouraging.
Cody Murphy opened the scoring with a nice point before the home side equalised. However CBS struck for the lead point from Kevin Corrigan’s converted ’65.
Jordan Hayes cut in from his corner in the 17th minute and found the net with a stinging shot which gave the Boker boys a commanding lead considering the conditions.
St. Peter’s struck back with a goal of their own and they were keeping CBS goal minder Adam Howlin very busy.
Kevin Corrigan and Jordan registered a point each before the half-time whistle to leave CBS ahead by 1-4 to 1-2.
Wexford CBS Jack O’Leary grabbed two second half points compared to a sole St. Peter’s point as scores were very hard to achieve in the wet and miserable conditions.
Best for CBS were  Cormac Byrne, Nicky Kelly, Shane Pierce, Kevin Corrigan, Cathal Kirwan and Jordan Hayes.
Wexford CBS: Adam Howlin; Danny Walsh, Cormac Byrne, Chris Cowman; Nicky Kelly, Shane Pierce, Kevin Corrigan (0-2, 1 ’65); Terry Whitty, Cathal Kirwan; Cody Murphy (0-1), Jack O’Leary (0-2), Philip Rawson; Jordan Hayes (1-1), Shane Flood, Ben McMahon.
Subs: all at half-time – Cian Rossiter for Danny Walsh, Ryan McLoughlin for Cowman, Aaron Walsh for Ben McMahon, Finian Coughlin for Philip Rawson.

School Talent Search - South Leinster Final

There was no shortage of tough competition last night at the South Leinster Final of the "All Ireland Schools Talent Search". Thirty acts representing schools from all over the south east battled it out in aid of the Cheerios Childline Appeal. Among the talented competitors were three well renowned acts from Wexford C.B.S., each of whom gave outstanding performances!

Marty Mullally impressed the crowd with a song of his own creation - "'Til the Clocks Run Out". L.M.J. (Luke Jackson, Marty Mullally and Jack Robinson) stunned the audience to an awestruck silence with their own unique rendition of "Titanium" and The Krew (Danny Fitzpatrick, Nathan Donovan and Chris Murphy Kehoe) ended the show on a high note with their harmonious performance of Coldplay's "Fix You".

Fourteen acts on the night progressed to the next round with the top three winning cash prizes also.  Both The Krew and Marty Mullally now move on to compete in the All Ireland Semi Final of the competition having ranked in the top fourteen. Congratulations to both acts, especially Marty who came in 3rd place and received a cash prize of €250 for his efforts. Commiserations to LMJ who, despite being plagued with illness over the past week, gave a fantastic performance on the night. Unfortunately they will not progress any further.

The pen-ultimate round, the All Ireland Semi Final, will take place on the 23/24 February.
Best of luck to the remaining two C.B.S. acts! We wish you well!
