U.15 Soccer

Wexford C.B.S....3   Enniscorthy V.C.....0
Wexford CBS starting eleven(4-4-2): Adam Dempsey, Paddy O’Reilly, Liam Godkin, Sam O’Neill, Ben Butler, Dylan O’Regan, Cathal Kirwan, Dion Murphy(C), Leon Nolan, Luke Dowdall, Ryan Busher. Subs; Justin Butler, Dylan Breen, Ben Creane, TJ Cousins, Cian Foley.
The first half was a cagey affair, Enniscorthy defended well as the CBS tried in vain to break the deadlock. Leon Nolan produced a fine save from Enniscorthy’s keeper after a clever Dylan O’Regan cross from the left. Adam Dempsey was rarely troubled in Wexford’s goal, on the occasional Enniscorthy attack he acquitted himself impressively. Half-Time 0:0
Wexford Sub: Justin Butler for Ryan Busher.
The second half continued where the first half had finished with Wexford probing for the opening goal. Approaching the last 15 minutes the sides were still deadlocked. CBS Sub: TJ Cousins for Leon Nolan. Wexford’s mid-field duo of Dion Murphy and Sam O’Neill impressed at every opportunity. Sam produced a fine save from the Enniscorthy keeper from all of 20 yards. Liam Godkin neatly feed Luke Dowdall, Luke was fouled on the edge of the box. Dylan O’Regan’s free-kick was spilled by the keeper and TJ Cousins was on hand to poke home the opener. WX CBS 1-0 EVC.                         Another quick strike from TJ gave CBS a 2-0 advantage. Wexford continued their dominance, Luke Dowdall adding to the score, nicely finishing to the keeper’s right CBS 3-0 EVC.                                  
CBS Sub: Dylan Breen, Ben Creane and Cian Foley for Liam Godkin, Luke Dowdall and Cathal Kirwan.
Enniscorthy pushed forward with time against them, determined to register on the scoreboard. They left empty handed as the game ended Wx CBS 3-0 EVC, Enniscorthy’s performance merited more but Wexford’s attacking power eventually shown through late in the game.                          
Next up for Wx CBS, Gorey Community School.

Under 17 Soccer

Wexford C.B.S....1  Bridgetown....0
On Friday 11th of October Wexford CBS began their under 17 league campaign with a hard fought win away to Bridgetown. The Boker boys played some lovely football but found it very difficult to break down a determined Bridgetown side.
The game began brightly and the CBS knew they were not going to have it easy as Bridgetown hassled and harried and made it very difficult for the boys to find any rhythm. Early in the game Shane McGrath was forced into action and dealt well with a Bridgetown attack. The CBS were playing some lovely football and enjoyed the lion’s share of possession but found it difficult to create a good goal scoring opportunity. Jessie Farrell and Dylan Dixon were working well together up front and forced the excellent Bridgetown keeper into a number of fine saves. The breakthrough arrived around half way through the first half as Darragh Rossiter split the defence with a delightful through ball over the top onto the foot of the onrushing Dixon who controlled well before slotting home from just inside the box for what proved to be the games only goal.
The second half saw more of the same as Bridgetown defended deep and made it very difficult for the CBS to grab a second goal. The CBS dominated possession and to be fair defended very well when Bridgetown broke forward but could not find a way past a very determined backline and an excellent keeper in the Bridgetown goal. CBS took all three points and in a three team group that will be vital, next up is a home clash with Gorey C.S znd the Bokerboys will have to improve in front of goal to get a result there, having said that the CBS put in an impressive performance and on another day could have scored more had it not been for a resolute defence. Best on the day for the lads were Alex Bergin, Eoin Doyle and Darragh Rossiter.

Wexford CBS: Shane McGrath (Wexford Bohs), Lee Busher (Wexford Albion), Emmett Sinnott (North End), Eoin Doyle (Wexford Youths), Aaron Goodison (Wexford Bohs), Alex Bergin (Wexford Bohs), John Hamilton (Forth Celtic), Eoin MacDonald (Wexford Celtic), Darragh Rossiter (Wexford Youths), Jessie Farrell (North End), Dylan Dixon (Curracloe), Subs: Mikey Lawlor (North End) for Busher, Dylan Ennis (North End) for Goodison, Gary Cullen (North End) for Farrell, Emmet Ryan (Wexford Celtic) for Hmailton, also Rob Donnelly (St.Joseph)

Senior Soccer

Wexford C.B.S....10 Enniscorthy V.C.....4
On Wednesday 9th of October the Senior Wexford CBS soccer side got their league campaign underway in emphatic fashion with a big win over Enniscorthy V.C. This is almost a completely new side for the Bokerboys with the majority of last year’s side having left the school. This side has shown an excellent attitude so far and there is a great atmosphere within the team at the minute as illustrated by the huge turnout seen at training every week. Captained by Evan Dubar this team is really showing a great team spirit. Hopefully this attitude will remain throughout the season.
The match got off to a dream start for the boker boys as within 5 minutes Sean Stafford won possession in the Enniscorthy half and played in Eoghan Whitty with a neat pass and Eoghan made no mistake as he curled a cool finish in off the post to give the boys a dream start. The CBS absolutely dominated the remainder of the first half, Sean Stafford was taken down in the box and the teams’ youngest member Eoin Doyle calmly slotted home the resultant penalty. Eoin scored his second and the sides third soon after as the ball broke down from a corner 3-0. Wexford continued to create a number of chances and Sean Stafford went close to furthering the lead on quite a number of occasions (4 or 5). A fourth goal soon arrived as Richie Kearney fired home a freekick from just outside the box in off the underside of the crossbar, a goal David Beckham would have been proud of. Just before half time Sean Stafford eventually managed to hit the net to make it 5, with a well taken goal from close range.
The second half saw a number of changes from both sides as the sting left the game a little, substitute Mark Doyle made it 6-0 as he nodded home from close range after Eoghan Whitty whipped in a dangerous ball from just outside the box. Enniscorthy gave themselves a glimmer of hope as they took advantage of two mistakes at the back from Wexford CBS as ‘Sharky’ raced into two one on one positions and finished well on both occasions. Wexford CBS responded by putting real pressure on the Enniscorthy side, this topsy turvy second half soon saw its most bizarre goal as CBS keeper Joe Coleman launched a ball forward only to see it skin off the back of an Enniscorthy head and bounce over the keeper and into the net, 7-2. Some excellent work from Jessie Farrell widened the advantage as he twisted and turned in the box before squaring to Shane McGrath who made no mistake from close range. The CBS were again dominating and were guilty of missing some very good opportunities (Dylan Dixon). Enniscorthy hit back twice more coming to the end another good run from midfield as the CBS attempted an unsuccessful offside trap and a rebound from a well taken free to bring the score to 8-4 in a very entertaining second half. With ten minutes to go, the CBS introduced Keith Harpur, making his school debut and it was one to remember, Richie Kearney was taken down in the box and Keith stepped up to fire home the resulting penalty, 9-4, to  rapturous applause from the home crowd. He wasn’t finished there as he slotted home another fine finish just before the final whistle 10-4!
CBS were very impressive especially in the first half before making so many changes, next up is a tough trip to Gorey. Best on the day were Kearney, Evan Dunbar and Eoghan Whitty.

Wexford CBS: Joe Coleman (Forth Celtic), Lar Stoutt (North End), Evan Dubar (North End), Emmet Fox (Crossabeg), Eoin Doyle (Wexford Youths), Adam Roche (Wexford Celtic), Eoghan Whitty (Wexford Bohs), Jamie MacDonnell (Wexford Celtic), Sean Stafford (Forth Celtic), Cian Doyle (Wexford Celtic), Richie Kearney (North End), Subs: Emmett O’Connor (Corach Ramblers), Jack Robinson (Wexford Celtic), Dylan Dixon (Curracloe), Mark Doyle (Wexford Celtic), John Hamilton (Forth Celtic), Eoin MacDonald(Wexford Celtic), Jessie Farrell (North End), Shane McGrath (Wexford Bohs), Keith Harpur (North End)

Gaelic Football - Keevans Cup First Year Football Shield

Wexford CBS retained the Keevans Cup First Year Football Shield recently at a sunny Pairc Garman with a comfortable win over St Peter’s College in the final having gone undefeated at the day-long blitz.

Their first group game saw CBS face Enniscorthy VC. After absorbing some early pressure CBS struck back with some well taken scores to lead at half time. In the second half playing with the wind they ran out comfortable winners on a score line of 4-1 to 0-2.
Scorers - Dylan Jones 2-0, James Crean 1-0, Todd Hynes 1-0, Cian Foley 0-1.

Next up were Good Counsel College of New Ross. In what was a hard fought game the final score line of 4-4 to 1-1 didn't do justice to the efforts of the New Ross lads. However the result ensured that the Boker boys were on full points after two games.
Scorers - James Crean 1-0, Todd Hynes 1-0, Shane Bergin 1-0, Tre Long 1-1, Kallum Broaders 1-0.

CBS’s traditional rivals St Peter’s College were next up and in a nervous encounter, both sides struggled to find their rhythm. Leading by three points with time almost up, a last minute penalty was finished to the net by the College and the game ended 1-5 each with both remaining unbeaten.
Scorers - Cian Foley 1-1, Kallum Broaders 0-2, Shane Bergin 0-1, Gary Carroll 0-1.

In the final group game Wexford CBS faced Enniscorthy CBS to ensure their spot in the Shield final. The first half was very closely fought before the Wexford subs secured the scores that saw them qualify on a final score line of 3-8 to 1-3.
Scorers - Josh Kavanagh 1-1, Tre Long 0-1, Todd Hynes 1-2, Ice Samkchume 0-1, Gary Carroll 0-1, Gary Hall Roche 0-1, Shane Bergin 1-0, 

The final saw both unbeaten teams, Wexford CBS and St Peter’s College, face one another again after their earlier draw. However this time the CBS were not to be denied running out comfortable winners by 1-4 to 0-0.
Scorers - Cian Foley 0-1, James Creane 1-0, Todd Hynes 0-1, Josh Gruiney 0-1, Kallum Broaders 0-1.

Well done to all 24 panel members, each of whom got an equal amount of game time and all contributed to the successful campaign. If this group continues to show the same attitude and commitment then the future of football in the CBS is bright. 

Wexford CBS panel: Eoin Kinsella, Luke Moloney, Caolan O Reilly, Ben Hayes, Aaron Clancy, Liam Godkin, Conor Morris, Luke Rogan Sheil, Conor Graydon , Fionn Roche, Gary Hall Roche, Josh Kavanagh, Kallum Broaders , Kyle Robinson, James Crean, Ice Samkchume , Josh Gruiney, Todd Hynes, Cian Foley, Tre Long, Shane Bergin, Gary Carroll, Dylan Jones.

Wexford C.B.S....26  Pres. / DLS Bagnalstown....24
Wexford managed to hold off a determined Bagnalstown team as they fought back, having trailed by 21 points mid way through the second half.
The Bokerboys opened strongly and were on the scoreboard when Aaron Carley picked from the No.8 position and powered through to score by the posts. Kevin Corrigan added the extra points. On 15 minutes Michael Lawlor also finished off a strong run to extend the Wexford lead to 12-0.
Bagnalstown bounced back on the resumption of play , closing the gap to six points. Kody Murphy then ran in a try and it was quickly followed by a second from Michael Lawlor. Kevin Corrigan added the conversions, and Wexford looked home and dry at 26-5.
