South Leinster Senior Hurling ‘C’ Quarter-final

Wexford CBS........................4-13     Colaiste Bhride Carnew..............3-8

After a particularly tough 60 minutes of hurling against Colaiste Bhride of Carnew the seniors of Wexford CBS progressed to the semi-final of the South Leinster Senior ‘C’ championship in Pairc Charman last Tuesday. The home side led by 2-7 to 2-1 at the break after enjoying the benefit of the wind and it was a much improved second half performance which ensured the victory.
Sean Stafford opened the scoring for the CBS but they were rocked when Carnew full-forward John Fleming of Craanford rifled a 21 yard free to the net. A second point from Stafford and another from Joe Coleman levelled matters after ten minutes.
Jamie McDonnell was bundled over for Joe Coleman to convert the free before Coleman split the posts from a tight angle to push CBS 0-5 to 1-3 in front. The home side’s first goal came courtesy of Mikey Coleman’s on 18 minutes. Sean Stafford’s shot was saved by the keeper but Coleman followed up and pulled the ball to the net.
Rob Donnelly passed to Joe McBride and he lashed to the net with a neat finish to leave the score at 2-7 to 1-1 after 25 minutes but Fleming repeated his earlier feat of netting from a free before half-time to leave the situation tense for CBS at the break with just a six point lead.
Carnew had the better start to the second half and four converted frees from John Fleming put them right back in contention. However, two Joe Coleman points, one from a free, settled CBS and Rob Donnelly scored his first goal after 49 minutes as the Wexford lads began to pull away.
Nicky Lawlor did all the hard work for Sean Stafford to grab a point and Donnelly’s fourth goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Carnew. However, they refused to let go and scored their third goal on 53 minutes but CBS had the last say when Eoin Roche, Sean Stafford (long range free) and Joe Coleman put the ball over the bar.
Next up for CBS is a home semi-final versus New Ross V.C.
