South Leinster Juvenile Hurling ‘B’ C’ship

Wexford CBS……………………….4-4
Gorey CS……………………………..1-12
The juvenile hurlers of Wexford CBS put in a power packed display to take the spoils of victory in this intriguing clash. There was great excitement at the finish as CBS sneaked into the lead and Gorey fought to take it back before the final whistle sounded.
Gorey were 1-8 to 1-3 ahead at half-time and deservedly so. Very often the CBS defence were under serious pressure to keep out the Gorey attack but somehow they did and it was felt at the break that the game was winnable for CBS.
Eoin Hartigan’s 17th minute kicked goal put CBS back in front by 1-2 to 0-4 but Gorey gradually worked their way back into the match and got a boost when a long ball dipped and went all the way to the net.
However, CBS were in a similar position at half-time in the first round v FCJ Bunclody so they knew what to do. Scores were needed badly but after 40 minutes it was 1-9 to 1-4 as both defences were excelling.
Darragh Carley was sweeping up in front of Chris Ryan and Carley was also providing at the other end as he lashed a free to the net (1-9 to 2-4). The Gorey students kept the scoreboard ticking over and their noses in front with point but CBS knew they needed goals to win the game. Goal number three arrived when Cian Doyle – now at full forward – cleverly flicked home (1-11 to 3-4.
As the clocked ticked towards 60 minutes, Darragh Carley’s free looked to be sneaking over the bar but the keeper pulled the ball down and it ended up in the net.
Gorey went all out for the goal which would win the match for them but the CBS rearguard held firm and celebrated a great victory as the final whistle went.
Wexford CBS: William Linn; Danny Howlin, Chris Ryan, Adam Murphy; Andrew Moran, Darragh Carley (2-1, 1-1 frees), Oisin Meyler; Tommy Gallagher (0-2), Cian Doyle (1-0); Tadhg Brohan, Eoin Hartigan (1-1), Eoin Doyle; Fionn O’Callaghan, Zach Breslin, Liam Donoghue.

South Leinster Juvenile Hurling ‘B’ C’ship

FCJ Bunclody………………………2-13
Wexford CBS……………………….2-9
This was a spirited and entertaining game of hurling but not without two dollops of controversy. CBS were down four at HT (1-5 to 0-4) but pulled the game back level. Darragh Carley’s free seemed to have been parried by the keeper into the net. However, the referee judged that it was a ’65.
Minutes later Zach Breslin turned and ran at goal before kicking to the net – or what many thought was the net – before complaints from the home team resulted in a throw-in as the was judged not to have crossed the line.
Such margins were devastating for CBS as the two goals they conceded were very soft.
Eoin Hartigan started the scoring with a fine point after hard work by Tommy Gallagher but FCJ over for the rest of the opening quarter and led by 1-4 to 0-1.
Three converted Darragh Carey frees brought CBS back into it at 1-4 to 0-4 before Bunclody finished off the half with a pointed free of their own.
CBS got the perfect start to the new half when Zach Breslin gathered and turned his man before kicking to the net. It was tit-for-tat for the next 25 minutes as both sides fought bravely to secure the win.
Zach Breslin was fouled for a penalty and Darragh Carley’s shot made it to the net to leave the score at 2-7 to 1-8 in favour of Wexford CBS.
However, disaster struck for CBS when a long free went all the way to the net to shove FCJ back in front. Darragh Carley responded with a fine point from play but Bunclody replied and it was the home side who struck for three late points to earn the two league points on offer.
Best for CBS were Fionn O’Callaghan, Darragh Carley, Andrew Moran, Cian Doyle, Tadhg Brohan, Eoin Hartigan and Zach Breslin. 
Wexford CBS: William Linn; Tadhg Hayes, Fionn O’Callaghan, Adam Murphy; Andrew Moran, Darragh Carley (1-6, 0-5 f, 1-0 pen), Rian Sammon; Tommy Gallagher, Cian Doyle; Tadhg Brohan (0-1), Eoin Hartigan (0-2, 1f), Chris Ryan; Quinlin Kelly, Zach Breslin (1-0), Liam Donoghue.
Subs: Finn Jager for Ryan, Callum McDonald for Kelly, Jack Kennedy for Jager, Conor Mackey for McDonald, Ryan for Donoghue.
