SCT Rugby

Wexford C.B.S.....10  St. Conleth's.......31
Hard luck to our Senior rugby team who were defeated in the McMullen Cup second round by St. Conleth's on the new 4G pitch at Donnybrook . St. Conleth's were very strong and got off to a great start. Wexford battled hard and Captain Conor Fenlon , who was by far the best player on display, led by example. While Wexford battled hard they were always playing catch up.
We know go into the shield competition, hopefully we can advance in that.

Wexford CBS.......46  East Glendalough.......22
Our Senior rugby team began the defence of the McMullen Cup today against East Glendalough, Wicklow. Alex Ryan opened the scoring after 11 minutes with a well taken try. Kevein Birney aded the conversion. Captain Conor Fenlon was next to cross the opposition line which was again converted by Kevin Birney. EGL responded with two quick tries reducing the deficit to 14 - 10. The Bokerboys hit a purple patch before half-time with tries from Aaron Carley and John Hamilton, both converted by Kevin Birney who was in superb kicking form. He also added a penalty before the whistle blew to end a productive half for Wexford, leaving them leading 31 - 10 .
Wexford opened the second half strongly, another Birney penalty and a try from Ian Bennett extended the lead to 39 - 10. EGL managed a couple of tries before Chris Vickery put the final nail in their coffin, again Birney added the extra points, bringing the Wexford total to 46 points.
This was a solid performance and will have to repeated on Thursday when we travel to Dublin to play St. Conleth's in round 2.

Gorey C.S 1 – 1 Wexford CBS 
Wexford CBS came away from fierce rivals Gorey Community School with a well-deserved draw on Friday 7/11/2014 after a tough, tense game of superb quality. As always with these two sides the football on show was of a high standard. Gorey took the game to the Bokerboys from the off and really took the upper hand in midfield from the offset. Wexford CBS were put under enormous pressure, every time they lost possession Gorey came charging at them in a quality team effort pressing hard down the wings looking to create an opening. Wexford CBS were weathering the storm quite well and gradually gaining a foothold in the game until around 15 minutes into the game disaster struck. CBS were sloppy in possession at the back and really should’ve cleared their lines but failed allowing the home side an effort on goal which was deflected over for a corner kick. From the resulting corner Wexford again failed to clear with some sluggish defending presenting Gorey with an opportunity from which they fired in a low cross from the left which deflected off a CBS player into the net. 1-0 down. Gorey continued to press and their right winger was having a major impact within the game and causing Wexford a number of problems. Towards the end of the first half the Bokerboys galvanised themselves Darragh Rossiter was having a great game at left back and was driving the side forward as much as he could, Cian Doyle won a free kick wide on the left, Rossiter swung in a dangerous ball with Gorey failing to clear properly it took an outstanding save from Corey Chambers to keep Gorey ahead. However the Bokerboys felt aggrieved as they felt they should’ve been awarded a penalty, Eoin MacDonald was dragged to the ground as he followed the rebound but somehow the ref missed it. Wexford continued to have the better of it for the rest of the first half forcing a couple of corners and Mikey Lawlor and Jessie Farrell both firing over decent efforts.
The beginning of the 2nd half was a nervy affair for the Bokerboys after some farcical play, Tony Crosbie attempted a back pass to unsuspecting keeper Dylan Bolger who was forced to clear hastily, straight to a Gorey midfielder who almost left the CBS with egg on their faces after his well-placed effort rebounded off  the inside of the post into Bolger’s arms. Gorey pressed again seeing a left wing cross bounce off the top of the crossbar. However the momentum was soon to swing entirely Wexford’s way, coinciding with the introduction of the lively John Hamilton who gave a passionate display full of energy and added a physical edge they were lacking on the left, the Bokerboys upped to their tempo and game to an entire new level, it was fantastic to watch as they played truly exceptional football as they hunted for a goal. Eoin MacDonald and Cian Doyle turned the game on its head from the centre of midfield and were dominating through the middle putting Gorey on the back-foot, Mikey Lawlor got on the end of a Farrell through-ball and as he pulled the trigger was taken down inside the box, but still no penalty awarded. Wexford were throwing everything at Gorey and Shane McGrath came close to scoring a spectacular effort from distance but his effort was tipped just over, every CBS player can be proud of their part as the team in its entirety combined from then on working together and really displaying again their best efforts. Jessie Farrell and substitute Shaun Donoghue came close with efforts. With ten minutes remaing and third time lucky the CBS were awarded a penalty after a Gorey player used his hand to block a through ball played towards Cian Doyle. Darragh Rossiter stepped up and fired home into the right hand corner of the Canadian international keepers net. A well-deserved equaliser for the Bokerboys who dominated the second half. Gorey looked to respond but found the central defence pairing of Ryan Byrne and Lar Stoutt in no mood to allow any openings. CBS pressed themselves looking for a winner but Gorey stood up well too. A fair result, after a tough but brilliant match. There was a feeling that these two sides may meet again in this competition as they did in the final of the under 16 competition three years ago, with very little to separate these two it may well be an exciting encounter yet again, however at this stage the Bokerboys have played both Pres Bray and Gorey C.S away from home and in 5 games are yet to lose. The team have built great momentum which they will need to carry forward as they progress through the competitions. Another fantastic team performance full of heart and courage as well as some top quality football, yet again all substitutes were used making a tremendous impact a real strength of this team is the strength in depth they possess. Best on this day for CBS were Lar SToutt, Darragh Rossiter, Jessie Farrell, Cian Doyle and man of the match Eoin MacDonald

C.B.S. Has Talent

Bokerboys blitz Bridgetown

Bridgetown V.C 0 – 7 Wexford CBS 
Wexford CBS continued their league campaign away to Birdgetown V.C. The boys began brightly and Eoin MacDonald gave the Bokerboys an early lead sliding home a cool curling low placed shot which left the keeper with no chance after a fine team move. Bridgetown responded well and forced Dylan Bolger into a couple of saves but in truth Wexford CBS upped the tempo and dominated possession creating numerous chances but to no avail as a determined Bridgetown outfit gave everything they had to keep the away side at bay. When the CBS did manage to get in behind the Birdgetown defence they found a keeper in excellent form who pulled off a number of quality saves from Shane McGrath and Jessie Farrell, the pick of which was a one handed effort to push away a well-placed Farrell header. Bridgetown could be pleased with their first half efforts as the half ended 1-0 to Wexford CBS.
The Bokerboys brought on returning stalwart Cian Doyle at half time and upped their tempo in a hunt for goals, which soon began to flow freely. Good work from Farrell and McGrath combined to play in Cian Doyle, Bridgetown’s right back intercepted the ball but pressure from Doyle forced him into knocking it over his own goal line for a 2-0 lead. The CBS simply blew their opponents away from this point on with Cian Doyle himself adding another 2 minutes later his pace left his marker for dead as he latched onto a fine ball from McGrath before coolly slotting home a neat finish into the left hand corner of the net. Next up was McGrath himself whose persistence and hard work won him possession inside the box before he finished making it 4-0. Darragh Rossiter added a 5th from the spot. Wexford rang the changes throughout the half and the subs were playing fantastic football Shaun Donoghue in particular causing problems for the home team from the right wing. Substitute Liam Rockett made it 6 with a stunning strike from the edge of the box finding the top corner of the net with a ferocious strike after receiving the ball. Another substitute Rob Donnelly completed the scoring in a short second half with a moment of tremendous individual skill, receiving the ball from a fantastic pass from Alex Bergin, flicking over one player before finishing with a well-placed effort to leave the score at 7-0 to the Bokerboys. Some irresistible football played in Bridgetown by the Bokerboys, the team has really found its rhythm now and will need to continue to produce such quality in tougher ties which will lie ahead.

Wexford CBS: Dylan Bolger (North End), Aaron Goodison(Wexford Bohs), Lar Stoutt (North End), Tony Crosbie (North End), Ryan Byrne (Wexford Bohs),  Mikey Lawlor (North End),  Eoin MacDonald (Wexford Youths), Darragh Rossiter (Forth Celtic), Dylan Dixon (Blackwater), Jessie Farrell (North End), Shane McGrath (Wexford Bohs) Subs: Cian Doyle (Wexford Celtic) for Crosbie, Liam Rockett (Curracloe Utd) for McGrath, Shaun Donoghue (Unnatached) for Lawlor, Emmett Sinnott (North End)  for Goodison, Rob Donnelly (Killenagh) for Farrell, Alex Bergin (Wexford Bohs) for Dixon, Padraic Rossiter (Forth Celtic) for MacDonald, John Hamilton (Forth Celtic) for D.Rossiter,

Bokerboys grab fantastic victory with exceptional team performance

Presentation College, Bray 1 – 2 Wexford CBS 
Wexford CBS travelled up to Greystones to take on Wicklow-Wexford rivals Pres Bray in the 2nd round of the Leinster cup, a depleted squad missing some key players and came away with a phenomenal victory with a fantastic display of grit, determination and team spirit. After struggling to victory in their first 2 games the stakes were raised here for this cup tie as CBS faced an opponent of real quality. Pres Bray started the game at a high tempo and put the Bokerboys under pressure but the defending from the away side was resilient and impressive as they held their opponents at bay, restricting them only to long shots, which Dylan Bolger dealt with comfortably. As the game went on CBS gradually got a foothold and began to get on top creating a couple of good openings but Pres Bray defended well. The Bokerboys soon took the lead after an excellent move involving front pairing Jessie Farrell and Shane McGrath who linked up well to play in onrushing winger Mikey Lawlor who timed a run to perfection before calmly slotting home to the keepers right side to put the CBS 1-0 up. This was a game of top quality with both sides moving the ball well when in possession.  Pres Bray received a freekick deep in their own territory after a disputable call and played a direct ball to their striker who controlled the ball well before chipping over Bolger to level the score, a harsh lesson for the Bokerboys. CBS however responded brilliantly with Lawlor, McGrath and Farrell again linking up well this time Farrell was played in and he made no mistake when given the chance to put the CBS 2-1 ahead. Mikey Lalwor came close to adding a 3rd just before half time with the same three again linking up but saw his effort rebound off the post.
The second half saw the renewal of a tense affair but gradually the CBS began to get on top with Eoin MacDonald and Dylan Dixon dominant in midfield. Pres Bray threw everything they had at the CBS but found no joy with captain Lar Stoutt giving an immense display at centre half alongside Ryan Byrne again allowing the home side no clearcut opportunity on goal. Darragh Rossiter filling in at left back was also faultless and started many key moves from that position. With 15 minutes remaining the CBS should have ensured victory after more fine work from Lawlor on the right Jessie Farrell struck the crossbar and the rebound fell to John Hamilton who fired just over with the goal wide open. Pres Bray did manage to find their way in close to the end but at a tight angle they fired an effort wide. Aaron Goodison came on and helped shore up the backline for the tiring Emmett Sinnott. The substitutes all played their part in this game Shaun Donoghue came on the left and made a fine run down the left flank before squaring to Farrell who finished only to see the referee disallow the goal with a dubious decision.  Emmet Ryan and Liam Rockett both came on up front and linked up well to play in Ryan who was unlucky not to score. As the game wore on it was clear there was only going to be one winner, the substitutes brought on upping the tempo against a tiring Bray side. The final whistle was blown with a feeling of jubilation for the CBS as they progressed to a home tie in the last 16 of the competition. On the day it was an amazing team performance with every player giving their all and for the first time this season the Bokerboys showed their true potential and class, that level of performance will galvanise the team and the same and more will be needed as they continue in this competition. Best on the day from an outstanding collective performance were Stoutt, MacDonald and Lawlor. However it must be noted that the most pleasing aspect of this win was the manner in which the boys supported each other and exemplified all that is good about team sports.

Hurling Teams

South Leinster Junior Hurling B Championship round 3

Wexford CBS................................4-11
FCJ Bunclody................................3-9

Group leaders FCJ Bunclody visited Pairc Charman for this round three championship game played in splendid sunshine on a superb surface. The away team enjoyed the wind in the first half of what was a very even 30 minutes.
Luke Dowdall did all the graft for Jordan Hayes to fire to the net in the fifth minute but at the other end the Bunclody boys were lashing over the points and after ten minutes it was 1-1 to 0-3. Cian Rossiter worked hard to win possession for Jordan Hayes to point.
Hayes scored a fine individual point moments later and then Jack O’Leary bundled the ball over the line after a mazy run. However Bunclody registered a goal of their own just before the break as the CBS defence was caught out. It was 2-3 to 1-6 at the break.
CBS dominated the third quarter with the wind helping them. Chris Cowman and Jack O’Leary pointed and then Cathal Kirwan cleverly passed to Luke Dowdall who skilfully batted the ball to the net. This put CBS 3-5 to 1-6 ahead. Three further points from Jordan Hayes (from a free won by Ben McMahon), Cormac Byrne and Jordan Hayes stretched the lead.
Back came Bunclody and they struck for two goals as some strong first team players ** were introduced towards beginning of the final quarter. However, the Boker boys showed great attitude and Jack O’Leary fired home a cracker of a goal to make it 4-8 to 2-8.
Cathal Kirwan was fouled for Jordan Hayes to convert, Cian O’Connor split the posts from a Cathal Kirwan pass and centre-back and captain Cormac Byrne fired over the last point to seal the win. FCJ’s third goal arrived before Cormac Byrne’s point.
This was by far Wexford CBS’s best performance of the year and it’s a shame the team didn’t show this attitude, commitment and work in their previous games.
Wexford CBS: Kevin Corrigan; Ben Hayes, Adam Dempsey, Ryan McLoughlin; Philip Rawson, Cormac Byrne (Capt. 0-2), Shane Hall; Jack O’Leary (2-1), Chris Cowman (0-1); Jordan Hayes (1-5 0-2 frees), Cathal Kirwan, Luke Dowdall (1-0); Ben McMahon, Adam Howlin, Cian Rossiter (0-1).

South Leinster Junior Hurling B Championship

Enniscorthy CBS..........................7-10
Wexford CBS................................3-5

Enniscorthy CBS overpowered their Wexford counterparts in this second round championship match. After ten minutes Wexford led by 0-2 to 0-1 but the soft concession of three goals in a short space of time midway during the first half decided the contest.
Cathal Kirwan found Kevin Corrigan for the opening point of the game as Wexford CBS enjoyed a bright start. Philip Rawson passed to Corrigan for CBS’s second point shortly afterwards but that’s where it ended for the Bokerboys as the home side took over.
At half-time the score was 5-6 to 0-2. Wexford were transformed on the restart. Cian Rossiter smacked in a goal after twenty seconds but Enniscorthy replied with their sixth goal from the puck out. Undeterred Wexford kept at it and were rewarded with Kevin Corrigan’s pulled goal and Luke Dowdall’s goal.
However, the Enniscorthy ran out very comfortable winners.
Wexford CBS face FCJ Bunclody in the last round but unfortunately can’t qualify for the knock out stages.
Wexford CBS: Danny Walsh; Ryan McLoughlin, Cathal Kirwan, Cody Murphy; Adam Dempsey, Cormac Byrne, Philip Rawson; Ben McMahon, Shane Hall; Jordan Hayes (0-1), Ian Bennett, Terry Whitty; Cian Rossiter (1-0), Kevin Corrigan (1-4, 0-1 free), Luke Dowdall (1-0).

South Leinster Junior Hurling B Championship

Gorey CS..........................4-10
Wexford CBS...................1-6

Wexford CBS were in the game at half-time when the score was 1-6 to 1-3 in favour of Gorey CS but a second half fade-out led to the home side winning quite comfortably in the end.
Granted two of the Gorey goals came in the closing stages or ‘garbage time’, a return of just three points in the second half was disappointing.
The opening period was evenly contested as both defences were on top. Gorey opened the scoring with a goal but CBS responded through two Jordan Hayes pointed frees. After 19 minute sit was 1-3 each as Chris Cowman had squeezed a ground shot to the net following pressure exerted on the Gorey keeper by Jack O’Leary. Nicky Kelly had very cleverly placed Jordan Hayes for a point just beforehand.
Gorey went back in front before the break with three points but as both sides rested in the half-time sun, it was anybody’s game. CBS were making too many mistakes up front to make an impression and needed to be more clinical.
However it was Gorey who grabbed the scores and had taken a commanding 2-8 to 1-4 lead entering the fourth quarter. CBS’s point came following a nice move involving Jack O’Leary and Jordan Hayes before Chris Cowman pointed.
Cody Murphy pointed a free after Cian Rossiter was fouled and Jordan Hayes got CBS’s last point after a foul on Shane Hall.

Leinster Schools Senior Hurling ‘B’ championship

Enniscorthy CBS.............................2-18
Wexford CBS.................................2-12
A stunning final ten minutes sealed the two points on offer for Enniscorthy CBS last Friday in the first round of the Leinster Schools Senior Hurling ‘B’ championship in Bellefield.
The game was finely poised as it entered the 50th minute as Wexford CBS held a slender two point lead (1-12 to 2-7) but the home side went up a gear while their opponents stalled and as a result the Enniscorthy students hit eleven points in a row to ease home.
The sides were level at half-time (1-4 to 0-7) and on many occasions throughout but it was in the final ten minutes that the winners showed their experience and craft to engineer the victory.
The Wexford lads were ahead by 0-2 to 0-1 after five minutes thanks to two converted Conor Coleman frees with Conal Flood replying for Enniscorthy CBS. The Wexford students had more possession in the opening half but found it quite difficult to get scores through poor decision making and sloppy wides.
They did however open up a 0-6 to 0-3 lead after 20 minutes but a fine goal by Seamus Casey as he ghosted in behind the defence put Enniscorthy CBS back in the game against the run of play.
Wexford CBS thundered into the second half and grabbed an early 1-1 through Conor Coleman and looked set to build a platform for victory with a 1-8 to 1-4 lead.
However, Robert Byrne availed of a defensive lapse to find the net for the home side and this spiced up proceedings. Both sides exchanged points through Conor Coleman and Stephen Kearney (Wexford CBS) and Paul Larrissey and Conal Flood (Enniscorthy CBS).
Entering the final ten minutes the game was finely poised at 1-12 to 2-7 but Enniscorthy CBS seized control of the game all over the field and rattled off eleven points in a row mainly through Seamus Casey’s frees and Conal Flood - who was picking up loose ball in midfield and surging forward to score at will.
Jack Murphy lashed home a goal in injury time for the Boker boys but it was a disappointing end to the game but also a harsh lesson for Wexford CBS who were very competitive for fifty minutes in their first game at this level for a considerable time.
Enniscorthy CBS: Diarmuid Byrne (Monageer-Boolavogue); Peter Breen (Monageer-Boolavogue), Ronan Gahan (Shamrocks), Conor Lawless (Oulart-The Ballagh); Damien Reck (Oylegate-Glenbrien), Paul Larrissey (Crossabeg-Ballymurn, 0-2), Kieran Lambert (Oylegate-Glenbrien); Ciaran Hourihane (Oylegate-Glenbrien), Conal Flood (Cloughbawn, 0-5); Patrick Cullen (Crossabeg-Ballymurn), Robert Byrne (Crossabeg-Ballymurn, 1-0), Owen Dempsey (Buffers Alley, 0-2); Diarmuid Fenlon (Monageer-Boolavogue), Murtha Doyle (Oulart-The Ballagh, 0-2), Seamus Casey (Oylegate-Glenbrien, 1-7, 0-4 frees, 0-1 sl).

Wexford CBS 3 – 2 Enniscorthy V.C
Forth Celtic Duo Strike For C.B.S.
Wexford CBS continued their start to the campaign with another hard-fought victory at Wexford Celtic. The CBS did not find things as easy as they may have hoped against a fiercely determined Enniscorthy V.C side who played without any fear or pressure. Dylan Bolger was forced into an early save after some neat play from the away side. The boker boys punished Enniscorthy soon after exposing their out of position right back as Darragh Rossiter found clubmate John Hamilton with a neat pass, Hamilton raced onto it and finished from a one on one position to put the boys 1-0 up. The game was proving to be a battle especially in the centre of midfield where Enniscorthy were matching the home side. Darragh Rossiter doubled the advantage with an excellent finish from the edge of the box after some really nice football from the Bokerboys. The home side were only showing in flashes what they could do and will need to work on their consistency in approach for future games. Enniscorthy pulled a goal back making it 2-1 with a headed finish from a corner. Wexford upped their tempo again and Rossiter added his second after some fine work from Mikey Lawlor to finish from close range. Enniscorthy pulled a goal back in injury time with another headed effort from a set piece. The full time whistle was blown 3-2 to the Bokerboys but yet to show their best over a full game.

Ramsgrange C.S 2 – 4 Wexford CBS
Wexford CBS made hard work of qualifying from their first round cup tie against a determined and resilient Ramsgrange side in Duncannon. The Bokerboys boys began the game brightly and took an early lead with Eoin MacDonald rifling home a fine finish after a free flowing team move. The CBS dominated in terms of possession and should really have added to their lead but for some exceptional goalkeeping from Corey Doran in the Ramsgrange goal.Wexford lost the influential Cian Doyle following a nasty head collision midway through the first half. The CBS were made to pay for such complacency as Ramsgrange twice hit the on the break first levelling the score with a neat finish from a well worked move down the right hand side. Just before halftime the home side took the lead, Mikey Lawlor was guilty of overdoing things and lost the ball in a dangerous area and Stephen Creevy on the left wing for Ramsgrange hammered in a stunning strike from 25 yards to give the lead to the determined home side. In the second half it was all Wexford with the odd breakaway from Ramsgrange from which Dylan Bolger managed to keep them at bay, CBS pushed and pressed but were finding it almost impossible to find a breakthrough with the home keeper and defence giving everything to hold the lead, however Darragh Rossiter was taken down in the box with ten minutes remaining he dusted himself off and coolly finished from the spot to level the game. Wexford CBS were unable to find a breakthrough for the remainder of normal time and it was the first half in extra time when they finally managed to take the lead with Jessie Farrell prodding home from close range after another fine save from Doran. Farrell added a second to give the Bokerboys a 2 goal cushion in the 2nd half of extra time and kill off the game for a hard-fought victory. Best on this day for CBS were Rossiter, MacDonald and Farrell
