Juvenile Football

Wexford CBS.....9-12     Scoil Chonglais (Baltinglass)...4-06
Wexford CBS’s juvenile footballers made the long journey up to Baltinglass recently and recorded a comprehensive victory over Scoil Chonglais Baltinglass in the South Leinster ‘C’ Championship. Baltinglass started the strongest and scored three goals within the first five minutes. However, this Baltinglass dominance was short-lived and Jordan Hayes opened the CBS scoring with two fine points before striding through the Baltinglass defence to score a great goal.
The visitors were now in the ascendancy and Luke Dowdall raised the green flag again with a great fisted goal from Jack O’Leary’s long pass. Kallum Broaders added a third goal with a delightful chip over the Baltinglass goalkeeper and it was now one way traffic for the Boker Boys. Baltinglass could not contain Jordan Hayes as the St. Martin’s man kicked three superb points before Kallum Broaders scored his second goal.
A great passing move up the left wing led to a another great goal from centre-forward Luke Dowdall before Jordan Hayes cut through the Wicklow defence for a second time to add a second goal to his tally. Wexford CBS’s seventh goal of the first half was a brilliant soccer style finish into the bottom left corner of the Baltinglass goal from Cian Foley. As the whistle was blown for the break Wexford CBS were leading by 7-6 to 3-2.
Despite Wexford CBS’s overwhelming half-time lead the home side showed great spirit at the start of the second half and scored a goal and three points without reply. The Wicklow student had the majority of possession and could have had more scores on the scoreboard were it not for resolute defending by Jamie Thomas, Ben McMahon and Gary Hall-Roche.
This mini revival of Baltinglass was short-lived though as once again the Boker Boys began to dominate. Against a strong breeze the Wexford town lads notched a further three points through Jordan Hayes, Phil Rawson and Cathal Kirwan. Fifteen minutes into the second half, Jordan Hayes was once again the danger man as he was pulled down on the edge of the square and he coolly converted the resulting penalty.

Five minutes later Hayes scored his fourth goal with a great strike just before Luke Dowdall pointed from his right foot. Baltinglass did have one last goal chance just before the final whistle but their effort was heroically blocked down by Wexford captain Jack O’Leary.

Best for the CBS were Cathal Kirwan, Jamie Thomas, Jack O’Leary, Luke Dowdall, Cian Foley and Kallum Broaders and man of the match Jordan Hayes with a personal tally of 4-6.
