Leinster Schools Senior Hurling ‘B’ Championship

Round 1
v Enniscorthy CBS
Monday Nov 2
at Pairc Charman

Wexford CBS……1-12     Enniscorthy CBS…….1-12

The senior hurlers picked up a precious point in the championship when they came from behind to secure a richly deserved draw versus Enniscorthy CBS. Although the Boker Boys never had the lead, they never gave up the fight and got just about what they deserved in the end.
The Enniscorthy lads raced into a 1-4 to 0-1 lead after ten minutes with the help a rocket of a goal from county minor Seamus Casey. Gradually Wexford CBS began to believe and clawed their way back into the game with pointed frees from the hurl of Conor Coleman together with one from play from Coleman after 19 minutes.
It was 1-8 to 0-4 approaching half-time when CBS got a break when the Enniscorthy keeper dropped a Conor Coleman centre to the net and the sides retired with CBS trailing by four points (1-8 to 1-4).
The defence led by Daniel Lynch, Adam Dempsey and Cormac Byrne was working overtime and needed some help from their colleagues in attack in the new half. Cathal Kirwan had entered for the unluckily injured Padraig Rossiter and was also playing well.
CBS went to work straight from the start of the new half. Liam Rockett (2), Stephen Rossiter and Cormac Byrne (with a beautiful lift and strike effort from inside his own half) had points but the visitors always managed to keep their noses in front with points of their own.
With ten minutes to go, CBS got the lead down to one point thanks to Conor Coleman converted frees and his eighth and final point tied up the game in the 59th minute.
It was a great performance full of grit and determination. Well done to all. Next up is an away trip to Waterford to take on Abbey CC of Ferrybank.
Wexford CBS: Shane McGrath; Danny Walsh, Adam Dempsey, Padraig Rossiter; Shane Hall, Daniel Lynch (Capt.), Cormac Byrne (0-1); Darragh Rossiter, Dylan Dixon; Nicky Kelly, Liam Rockett (0-2), Stephen Rossiter (0-1); Liam Hore, Jack O’Leary, Conor Coleman (1-8, 7f).
Subs: Cathal Kirwan for P. Rossiter inj., Chris Cowman for L. Hore.
