Leinster Senior Qualifying: Charlesland G.C.

                   On our return to this level of competition ,the mostly young team of  third years Alex Brady (5) and Jack McGarry(6) from Rosslare G.C. and sixth year Brad Cohen  from Wexford G.C.were selected to play for the CBS.
                                The format for the event was Strokes with all competitors playing off Scratch(0) and all three scores to count. The day was mostly fine and the venue was Charlesland G.C Greystones an Eddie Hackett designed  parkland course built in 1992 which measures 6,700 yards off the blue tees but on the day we were playing off the slightly shorter white tees (6,500 yards). Tha course was firm and fairly open and  was playing quite short.
                                 Alex off  5 teed off first. After a steady front 9 of 3 over he had a couple of double-bogeys ,but recovered strongly to finish birdie-par.His 10 over total was a creditable effort for a first-time outing on a new course.
                                  Brad off 6 was second out. He had an excellent level par front 9 but the 13th was unlucky for him when a bad lie in the greenside bunker at the long par 3 resulted in a double-bogey 5. He bounced back immediately with an incredible birdie on the tough index 1 14th and a chip-in birdie at the last  gave him an excellent 2 over par 74 finish.
                                 Jack off 6 went out last. His front nine was the picture of steadiness unlil the 9th where visits to the rough, the water and a bunker resulted in a dreaded double-bogey. On the back nine he recovered brilliantly with birdies on 12 and 13 and a steady finish gave him an excellent 4 over  76 total.
                                               These three scores added gave us a 16 over 232 total,which, in the context of the range of 
scores on the day(224 to 288), was a top class performance.
                   St. Gerards,Bray 224 and Gorey C.S. 225 were the qualifiers on the day while we were in a commendable fifth place from 21 competing schools.

South Leinster Junior Hurling B championship

Grennan College (Thomastown)......6-7     Wexford CBS................0-20

Scoring twenty points and still managing to lose is a rare feat but one that befell the Wexford CBS juniors recently when they travelled to Thomastown in this South Leinster B championship clash.
The defence leaked a total of six goals which scuppered any hope of victory and most were the result of sloppy mistakes. The commitment and desire of the home side could not be matched and CBS were forced to accept defeat when a win was well within their grasp.
Darragh Rossiter opened the scoring with a fine point and then Stephen Kearney passed to Liam Rockett who scored the first of his four points from play.
The next score was the first goal for Thomastown as a mix up in the full-back line was punished. Back came the CBS at the other end when Stephen Rossiter put Stephen Kearney through and he levelled. Liam Rockett fed Danny Walsh who split the posts from a tight angle and CBS went in front.
However, the forwards were over elaborating a lot on the ball and wasting chances while the defence and midfield were under pressure from their direct opponents. The team was re-jigged but by the 20th minute it was 3-2 to 0-7 and by half-time it was 4-5 to 0-12 as Stephen Kearney’s frees were keeping CBS in the game.
CBS dominated the second half and mostly through Stephen Kearney’s free and Liam Rockett’s points, the Wexford lads got themselves back into the game. It was 4-7 to 0-18 with five minutes to go and the Thomastown were lads were beginning to wilt but their goalkeeper made two amazing saves.
At the other end, more defensive lapses resulted in two quick goals which killed off any chances of a result.
Next up is Enniscorthy CBS at home and a victory will send CBS through as group runners-up.
Wexford CBS: Shane McGrath (Faythe Harriers); Kevin Harte (Shelmaliers), Cormac Byrne (Faythe Harriers), Padraig Rossiter (St. Martin’s); Nicky Kelly (Faythe Harriers), Daniel Lynch (Faythe Harriers), Cody Murphy (Blackwater); Kevin Corrigan (Blackwater, 0-1), Darragh Rossiter (St. Martin’s, 0-1); Liam Hore (Faythe Harriers, 0-1), Liam Rockett (Shelmaliers, 0-4), Dylan Dixon (Blackwater); Stephen Rossiter (Shelmaliers), Stephen Kearney (Faythe Harriers, 0-11 0-9 frees), Danny Walsh (Faythe Harriers, 0-2).
Subs: Shane Pierce (Shelmaliers) for Harte, Shane Flood (Glynn-Barntown) for Walsh, Peter Ryan (Faythe Harriers) for S. Rossiter, Paul Bailie for Ryan.

First Year Football League

The annual Wexford CBS First Year Football League concluded in a welter of excitement recently with the first ever replayed final when Wexford and Kerry couldn’t be separated in the final proper.
However it was Wexford, led by their captain Kallum Broaders, who eventually ran out winners of the tournament overcoming Kerry in the replay by 2-4 to 1-1.
The drawn final ended on a scoreline of Wexford 0-7 to Kerry 1-4 and was evenly contested throughout. In the replay, Wexford did the damage in the first half with important goals from Kallum Broaders and Tre Long which gave them a half-time lead of 2-3 to 1-1. Try as they might all during the second half, Kerry just couldn’t break down a resolute Wexford defence.
