1St Year football league

The annual Wexford CBS First Year Football League concluded in a welter of excitement recently with the first ever replayed final when Wexford and Kerry couldn’t be separated in the final proper.
However it was Wexford, led by their captain Kallum Broaders, who eventually ran out winners of the tournament overcoming Kerry in the replay by 2-4 to 1-1.
The drawn final ended on a scoreline of Wexford 0-7 to Kerry 1-4 and was evenly contested throughout. In the replay, Wexford did the damage in the first half with important goals from Kallum Broaders and Tre Long which gave them a half-time lead of 2-3 to 1-1. Try as they might all during the second half, Kerry just couldn’t break down a resolute Wexford defence.
The big crowd was well entertained by both sets of players and afterwards match referee and deputy principal Mr. John Hegarty presented Wexford captain Kallum Broaders with the cup and also the man of the match trophy.

CBS claim Keevans Cup: First Year Blitz (16/10/12)

After a feast of football the First Years of Wexford CBS claimed the Keevans Cup (Roinn 2) in fine style last Tuesday at Parc Charman with victories over
Enniscorthy CBS ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams, St. Peter’s College ‘B’ (twice) and Good
Counsel ‘B’.

Coached and prepared by teachers Mr Davey and Mr Smith, the Wexford CBS
students enjoyed five wins in the day-long blitz. The results of the day went
as follows:

Group stagesRound 1: Wexford CBS 6-7 Enniscorthy CBS ‘C’ 1-0. Scorers: Jordan Hayes (4-1), Luke Dowdall (1-2), Leon Nolan-Cullen (1-0), Cathal Kirwan and Ben Butler (0-2 each).

Round 2: Wexford CBS 1-6 St. Peter’s College ‘B’ 0-2. Scorers: Jack O’Leary 0-3 (1 free), Ryan Busher 1-0, Luke Dowdall, Matthew Currid and Shane Hall (0-1 each).

Round 3: Wexford CBS 1-4 Good Counsel ‘B’ 1-0. Scorers: Jordan Hayes (1-1), Eoin Reck (0-2), Leon Nolan (0-1).

Semi Final: Wexford CBS 4-9 Enniscorthy CBS ‘B’ 0-1. Wexford CBS progressed to the final of the Keevans Cup with a comfortable win over the Enniscorthy CBS second team. From the throw-in the Boker Boys dominated with Jordan Hayes raising white flags with three fine points.

More points were to come from Luke Dowdall and the hard working wing forward
Phil Rawson as the Wexford town students dominated proceedings. The best score
of the first half came from the left boot of Luke Dowdall after he cut through
the Enniscorthy defence to rifle the ball to the top corner of the net to leave
the half time score at 1-5 to 0-0 in favour of Wexford CBS.

The second half was much the same as the first. Stout defending from Cathal
Kirwan and David McDonald kept Enniscorthy at bay while tiresome work from
midfielders Jack O’ Leary and Leon Nolan ensured that the Boker Boy forwards
had a rich supply of possession. Matthew Currid burst through the Enniscorthy
rear-guard to bury the ball into the back of the net after three minutes. Ben
Butler and Cathal Kirwan added a point each before Luke Dowdall enhanced the
Wexford school’s lead with a brace of points.

Jordan Hayes exploited some hesitant defending to add another goal to his
side’s tally. Phil Rawson registered the last score of the game with a well
taken goal in the dying seconds. Best for the Boker Boys in an outstanding team
performance were Peter Doyle, Cathal Kirwan, Leon Nolan-Cullen, Jack O’Leary,
Philip Rawson, Luke Dowdall and Jordan Hayes.

Wexford CBS: Adam Howlin (Shelmaliers); Darragh Whelan (Clonard), David McDonald (unattached), Peter Doyle (St. Mary’s Mauldintown); Eoghan Reck (Volunteers), Cathal Kirwan (Sarsfields 0-1), Jamie Thomas (St. Mary’s Mauldintown); Jack O’Leary (Volunteers), Leon Nolan-Cullen (St. Mary’s Maudlintown); Philip Rawson (St. Anne’s 1-2), Luke Dowdall (Volunteers 1-3), Ben Butler (Sarsfields 0-1); Ryan Busher (Volunteers), Jordan Hayes (St. Martin’s 1-2), Shane Hall (Sarsfields 0-1).

Subs: T.J Cousins (unattached) for Shane Hall, Matthew Currid (Volunteers 1-0) for Ryan Busher, Ben McMahon (Volunteers) for Jack O’Leary, Aaron Kinsella (Volunteers) for Eoghan Reck, Cian Rossiter (Volunteers) for Jamie Thomas.

Final: Wexford CBS 3-5 St. Peter’s College ‘B’ 0-2. The Keevans Cup winged its way back to Wexford CBS following this convincing victory over St. Peter’s College B team. CBS repeated their group game victory as they led from the start and notched up three points from Jordan Hayes (0-2) and Shane Hall (0-1) before St. Peter’s had registered their first point.

The Boker Boys responded to St. Peter’s opening score when Luke Dowdall
continued his goal scoring exploits from the semi-final by thundering the ball
to the back of the net five minutes before half time.

Following this Jordan Hayes added to his first point with another well taken
point before Luke Dowdall pointed again. The half-time score was Wexford CBS
1-4 St. Peter’s 0-2.

CBS were in no mood to take their foot from the pedal and started the second
half strongly once again. Peter Doyle, Eoin Reck and Jamie Thomas defended
doggedly against any St. Peter’s attack while Leon Nolan-Cullen and Jack O’Leary
dominated midfield once again. The running of Luke Dowdall, Jordan Hayes and
Phil Rawson caused the St. Peter’s defence many problems.

The intense pressure from the Boker Boys paid off when they won a thirty yard
free from the St. Peter’s goal. Jack O’Leary stepped up and from the placed
ball struck the top corner of the goal with a bullet of a shot.

Luke Dowdall matched his first half tally with another goal and a point before
the referee blew his final whistle. CBS had outstanding performances in David
McDonald, Cathal Kirwan, captain Jack O’Leary, Luke Dowdall and Jordan Hayes.

Wexford CBS: Adam Howlin; Darragh Whelan, David McDonald, Peter Doyle; Eoghan Reck, Cathal Kirwan, Jamie Thomas; Jack O’Leary (1-0), Leon Nolan-Cullen; Philip Rawson, Luke Dowdall (2-2), Ben Butler (0-1); Matthew Currid (1-0), Jordan Hayes (0-2), Shane Hall (0-1).

1st Year Keevens Cup Blitz 2011-10-13


Wexford CBS can be proud of their efforts in the annual Keevans Cup tournament for first years held in Pairc Garman on Wednesday 12th October. While they eventually claimed 3rd place in their section, they were most unfortunate not to do even better and bring home some silverware..

Wexford CBS 1-2 Good Council New Ross 2-2

In the opening game Wexford CBS faced pre tournament favourites Good Council College. The New Ross side had the better start but The CBS boys came storming back with a great goal from Nicky Kelly to be level at half time. They took the lead early in the second half with a point from Lee Busher but a controversial goal given when CBS Goalie Kevin Corrigan was bundled into the net while saving the ball sealed the victory for the New Ross boys. Best for CBS were Jack Houghton, Alan Browne, Nicky Kelly and Aaron Smythe . Wexford CBS scorers were Nicky Kelly (1-0) and Lee Busher (0-2)


Wexford CBS 2-3 Enniscoerthy CBS 2-4

Wexford took out their frustration at the opening defeat with blistering opening to their second game. They totally dominated the Enniscorthy side who had won their opening game in the tournament. Two goals from Lee Busher and points from Jack Houghton and Kevin meant they had a decent lead at half time but some super saves from the Enniscorthy keeper kept them in the game. Wexford CBS would later regret some of these misses as the Enniscorthy lads came back into the game. Despite a solid defensive effort when the final whistle sounded there was a single point between the teams and Enniscorthy were on their way to the final. Best for CBS were Eoin Mahon, Everett Johnston and Paul Bailie. Wexford CBS scorers were Lee Busher (2-1) Jack McGarry (0-1) and Jack Houghton (0-1)


Wexford CBS 3-5 St Peters College 3-2

In the final game Wexford CBS faced their local rivals from St Peters College. In a highly entertaining and end to end game Wexford CBS went into an early lead and would hold this advantage to the end of the game. It was by far their best performance of the day with scores coming from all over the field. Goals from Izac Doyle, Sean Hopkins and Lee Busher set them up for a very good win and third place overall. Best for CBS were Danny Walsh, Kevin Corrigan, Sean Hopkins and Terry Whitty. Wexford CBS scorers were Sean Hopkins (1-1), Lee Busher (1-1), Izac Doyle (1-0), Lee Walsh (0-2) and Everett Johnston (0-1)
