Both our Senior and Junior teams had useful workouts against Good Counsel, New Ross on Wednesday last. The Seniors went down by a single point in a game of two halves really. Bokerboys dominated the first half with scores from Aaron Smythe, Darragh Rossiter and Callum Murphy and were well in control, but a bad decision just before half time cost seven points. The second half did not live up to the standard of the earlier exchanges and Wexford spent alot of time defending, eventually conceding scores and losing by 22-21. Further games are scheduled for after the break against Wicklow and a return fixture v God Counsel, before we begin our campaign in the McMullen Cup.
The Juniors were well beaten by a far bigger team, but it is great to have so many young new players involved. Further games will help them improve.

Wexford CBS 4-0 Enniscorthy V.C
Bokerboys begin league campaign with repeat of last seasons scoreline
It was a repeat of the scoreline from when these sides met last season in the under 17 league as the Bokerboys began their league campaign in impressive fashion. Playing in Wexford Albion Coolcotts pitch the boys who were very familiar with the surroundings looked comfortable from the beginning. Early on Luke O’Neill and Jamie Thomas posed a massive threat down both wings and O’Neill almost opened the scoring inside five minutes hitting the side netting after creating an opening for himself after running at the Enniscorthy defence. Jamie Thomas minutes later saw an effort crash off the crossbar. The Bokerboys dominated the half as they continued on from their first cup game displaying a powerful game in terms of keeping possession. The Bokerboys were looking frustrated as time and time again they were thwarted in their attempts at goal by a combination of fine goalkeeping, good defending and poorly placed shots. The Bokerboys however displayed a profeesional attitude and remained focused throughout and eventually made the breakthrough with only minutes remaining in the first half TJ Cousins forced the keeper into a fantastic save as he met Jamie Thomas’s cross with a powerful header the rebound however was picked up by Sam O’Neill who reacted first and squared a ball across the box for his brother Luke to tap in from close range. The Bokerboys doubled their advantage within minutes as Dion Murphy surged forward from right back to finish from close range after some neat play with his team mates.
2-0 the half time score after a difficult half, in which Enniscorthy gave everything in an attempt to stop the Bokerboys. The second half saw a change in style of the game as Enniscorthy looked to play directly to their attacking force Aaron Dobbs who was played into a one on one situation from which CBS captain Adam Dempsey reacted brilliantly to save and keep the clean sheet intact. The CBS continued to pile on pressure as time and time again they couldn’t quite find the finishing touch to some well-constructed attacks. The third goal arrived with ten minutes remaining, centre half Jack O’Leary met an in swinging corner gracefully with an overhead kick which hit the crossbar and Luke Dowdall tapped home from close range the rebound. The goal helped to alleviate the pressure of the away side. Dowdall added his second minutes later with a lovely effort as he controlled and volleyed from outside the box hitting the top corner of the net to make it 4-0. Another excellent team performance from the CBS as they make a winning start to this seasons league campaign hoping to go one better from last season when they lost out in the final on penalties. Man of the match on the day from several candidates was Shane Hall as he worked tirelessly for the good of the team throughout.

Wexford CBS 6-1 Tullow C.S
Bokerboys begin Cup campaign with convincing victory
Wexford CBS Under 17s began their season in convincing style with a dominant display over Tullow C.S in North End winning by a score of 6-1. The CBS simply dominated every aspect of this game from the off as the energetic team effort saw them command the lion’s share of possession. Luke O’Neill started brightly down the right flank and gave his opponent a nightmare as he looked to get in behind at every opportunity using skill to get in behind opposition lines before delivering a dangerous cross into the box. CBS from the off looked hungry for victory, and the opening goal soon arrived as Luke O’Neill got to the byline before whipping in a dangerous cross which was turned into the net by a Tullow player. The game was marred by an injury to a player off each team with both being taken to hospital immediately. CBS continued with their excellent approach and moved the ball around with real purpose in a scintillating display of possession football. The bokerboys soon doubled their lead after the O’Neill brothers combined excellently Sam threaded a ball between the opposition defence and Luke took it in his stride, waltzing between two players before coolly slotting home into the corner leaving the keeper with no chance. The level of performance of the Bokerboys was impressive as Tullow simply couldn’t make it out of their own half, the hosts playing excellently should really have added many more. Sam O’Neill made it 3-0 before the break after a fine team move played him in to the box and he applied a neat finish at the near post.
The second half saw Tullow emerge with renewed energy and for the opening put in a spell of good football where they threatened to make the CBS pay. However when they did advance they found it difficult to cope with the presence of Kallum Boraders and Peter Doyle at the back. Some good build up play won them a corner from which they headed home to bring them back into the game. The Bokerboys however responded immediately and substitute Cathal Kirwan linked up well with Sam O’Neill and Ryan Busher before bundling home a shot from inside the area. From this point on the CBS again dominated proceedings with Sam O’Neill making it 5 soon after. The Bokerboys introduce more substitutes and both Todd Hynes and Leon Nolan Cullen impressed down the wings. Dion Murphy rounded off an excellent team performance in the final minute after he advanced down the right flank before cutting inside and just inside the box unleashed an effort which found the top corner of the net. The final score was 6-1 but what was most impressive was the convincing performance of the Home side if they can maintain this level of performance it will take a very good side to overcome us. Best on the day was simply every player as they all combined so efficiently and impressively to dominate this game.

Gaelic Football Triumph

The First year football team had its first outing on Friday  2nd of October. A huge amount of interest was shown among the group in representing the school and thus CBS comfortable fielded two team. Both teams travelled to Pairc Garman on a crisp autumn morning ready for action.
Team B had their first game against Enniscorthy Vocational  College. CBS started strong and took an early lead however a strong finish by Enniscorthy saw CBS fall to a one point defeat. Next up was a solid Good Counsel team.  A late CBS rally saw them  take the lead with time running out before a last grasp point by Good Counsel snatched a draw. In the third game CBS took on a physically bigger Meanscoil Charman team. CBS played a fine game with some great movement and score taking, however size told in the end as Meanscoil pulled away to win by 5 points. After a short break CBS played their final game against CBS Enniscorthy knowing that a win could qualify them for a final. CBS Wexford played the better football throughout the game but they found themselves losing at half time after conceding some soft scores. CBS Wexford stormed out in the second half and some early goals ensured victory. The win left Wexford waiting with a chance to qualify for the final, unfortunately other  results didn’t go the way they hoped and they  finished third in the group.

Team A played in the B’ division and after some early set back in group rallied to some nice victories. They found themselves also needing a win against CBS Enniscorthy to qualify for the final. CBS played the better football in the first half and held a slender lead at half-time. Despite some scares in the second half CBS Wexford held out to set up a final against Good Counsel  B’.  CBS again started well with some early attacks yielding scores from the foot of Óisin Waters. CBS controlled the midfield area for most of the first half with Eoin Kavanagh causing lots of trouble for Good Counsel, however some wasteful shooting and a late Good Counsel rally ensured that the scores remained close at half time.
 Good Counsel started the second half well with some nice points to even up the game. As the clock ticked away Good Counsel mounted attack after attack, some stellar defending by the Boker boys kept them at bay until a late shot found the back of the net. With the minutes ebbing away and the clock ticking into overtime the CBS lads found themselves 3 points down. A late flowing attack found Eoin Kavangh free on the Counsel 21 meter line from where he found the net to level the game. Extra time ensued Good Counsel seemed to find an extra gear in this 5minute period and had CBS under severe pressure. The Boker boys showed great heart and character putting bodies on the line with some stellar blocks. The referee blew the final whistle for the second time. The game had the unusual conclusion of being settled over a tense penalty shootout. After both teams missed penalties in the formal shootout the teams headed to sudden death. Both teams missed their first shots as the pressure mounted, but CBS held their nerve with Jason Kelly slotting home the winner as Francis Dempsey saved Good Counsels last penalty.

The cup came home to Thomas St. as this group win their first bit of silverware for the school. The management team of Mr. J Hegarty, Mr. F Davey and Mr. W Carley were very pleased with both teams. The CBS panel was as follows:
