Keevans Cup Junior Football B Final:
Wexford CBS v Good Counsel B
Tuesday May 21, 2013
Wexford CBS………….1-19 Good Counsel ‘B’………….3-12 (After Extra-Time)
The junior footballers of Wexford CBS captured the Keevans Cup Junior Football B Title after an epic battle against Good Counsel B in Pairc Charman recently.
The Bokerboys always seemed to be ahead of their opponents but couldn’t shake off the New Ross students and despite going into a 0-7 to 0-3 lead after 25 minutes, CBS conceded three late points to leave the score at 0-7 to 0-6 at the break.
Ciaran Kirwan led the charge in the scoring stakes with solid performances also from Nicky Lawlor, John Hamilton and Joe Redmond.
A great save from Shane McGrath kept Counsel at bay but he couldn’t keep a clean sheet much longer and he was beaten twice in the second half. Yet CBS replied with points from Ciaran Kirwan (3), David Tormey, Jesse Farrell and Sean Donohue (one each) but the goals looked to have secured Good Counsel the win but Conor Coleman’s late goal following a pass from Aaron McGuire brought CBS back to life. Full-time score 1-13 to 2-10.
Extra time beckoned and CBS took the lead and at half-time enjoyed the advantage by 1-17 to 2-12. Counsel’s third goal gave CBS more worries but up popped Conor Coleman to level the score and then Aaron McGuire scored the winner to great celebrations from the Bokerboys.
Wexford CBS: Shane McGrath; Cian Doyle, Joe Redmond, John Hamilton; Dillon Dixon (0-1), Dylan Hynes, Eoin Doyle; Nicky Lawlor (Capt.) and David Tormey (0-1); Darragh Rossiter, Eoin McDonald (0-1), Sean Donohue (0-3); Ciaran Kirwan (0-8, 2 frees), Jessie Farrell (0-3), Conor Coleman (1-1).

Ardscoil Raith Iomhgain……. 0-14 Wexford CBS……3-4
A courageous display by CBS Wexford against Ardscoil Raith Iomghain at the back pitch in Dr. Cullen Park, Carlow recently wasn’t enough to see them through to the South Leinster Junior ‘C’ Final.
With a strong wind behind them in the first half CBS didn’t do themselves any favours by failing to establish a good lead. On the contrary, a blistering start by Ardscoil saw them establish a three point cushion for themselves.
The Kildare defence successfully stifled the CBS forwards in the opening stages of that first half holding CBS scoreless until the 14th minute.
However CBS hauled themselves back into contention with grit and determination and a goal from Sean Stafford was a result of the Wexford lads’ domination of the last ten minutes of the first half.
With both sides all square at half time (1-2 to 0-5) CBS faced a tough task in the second half if they were to reach the final. However Eoin Roche could have given CBS a tremendous start to the new half but his shot from close range went across the goal and narrowly wide. Meanwhile at the other end Ardscoil’s slick forwards took full advantage of the wind as they raced to a six point lead with some very neat points.
The towel was never thrown in and CBS stuck to their task. They were rewarded with two goals from Eoin Roche and Ian Moran in the 50th and 57th minute respectively to haul in the Kildare school’s lead (0-13 to 3-3).
However the clock was against the Bokerboys and a late point from Ardscoil put two points between the sides and resulted in CBS needing another goal to see them through this tough encounter.
So CBS went in search of a fourth goal and Dale Scallan hit the crossbar with a stinging shot. More heartbreak followed in the dying seconds of added time when a free from Scallan came within inches of the net before it was punched over the crossbar for a point.
Best for CBS were Brad Cohen, John Forde, Evan Dunbar, Eoin Roche, Gary Murphy, Ciaran Kirwan and Jamie McDonnell.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Adam Roche (Clonard), Evan Dunbar (St. Martins), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Gary Murphy (St. Mary’s Maudlintown), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields), Gearoid Finn (St. Anne’s); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 1-0), Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields); Dale Scallan (Sarsfields 0-2), Joe Coleman (St Martin’s), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-1), Ian Moran (Glynn Barntown 1-1).

Quarter-final– Wexford CBS 2-9 1-7 Col Cill Mhaintain
The under-16 footballers from Wexford CBS qualified for the semi-final of the South Leinster ‘C’ championship following this recent hard earned victory over Colaiste Chill Mhaintain in Pairc Charman.
This was a tough battle from the throw-in and with both sets of backs proving to be quite solid it wasn’t surprising that the first score didn’t come until the twentieth minute as the visitors took the lead with a point.
Defences stayed on top for the remainder of the first half and Colaiste Chill Mhaintain led by 0-4 to 0-3 at half time in quite a low scoring 30 minutes of football. Eoin Roche (two) and Sean Stafford registered the points for CBS.
However the Bokerboys were somewhat wasteful in the last ten minutes of the first half and missed two clear-cut goal chances.
Stafford levelled matters early in the second half as CBS were determined to get back into the match. Their opponents were equally as eager for that last four berth and during the third quarter points were exchanged to leave the score at 0-6 each. Dale Scallan and Nicky Lawlor were responsible for the CBS points.
CBS received a lucky break in the 48th minute when Eoin Roche’s high ball into the square was fumbled by the Wicklow town school’s keeper and ended up in the net.
Having just snatched the lead for the first time in the game, CBS were rocked when they conceded a penalty which was converted to put Colaiste Cill Mhaintain back into the driving seat entering the final ten minutes.
In spite of this considerable setback CBS started to dictate play and two points from Eoin Roche and a cracking goal from Sean Stafford secured a hard earned victory.
Best for CBS were Eoin Roche, Jamie McDonnell, Sean Stafford, Dale Scallan, Ciaran Kirwan, Evan Dunbar and Nicky Lawlor. They face Ardscoil Rath Iomghain (Rathangan, Co. Kildare) in the semi-final.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Adam Roche (Clonard), Evan Dunbar (St. Martins), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Gary Murphy (St. Mary’s Maudlintown), Joe Coleman (St. Martins), Liam Barry (Sarsfields); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-3 Capt.), Dale Scallan (Sarsfields 0-1); Joe McBride (Volunteers), Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 1-4), Keith Harpur (St Mary’s Maudlintown).
Subs: Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfields 0-1) for Harpur (32), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields) for McBride (40), David Tormey (Clonard) for Redmond (44), Darragh Rossiter (St. Martin’s) for Coleman (48), Richard Cleary (Clonard) for Barry (55).
Wexford CBS under-16 footballers made the journey to New Ross on Tuesday for their opening game of the South Leinster Juvenile C championship. CBS dominated from the throw in but were unsuccessful in registering a score despite all their possession. In the tenth minute Keith Harpur rectified the situation when he kicked the ball low past the New Ross goalkeeper. A commanding first half performance from the CBS midfield coupled with stylish scoring from David Tormey and Sean Stafford helped CBS to a 6-7 to 0-2 lead at half time. New Ross hadn’t been without their chances in the first half but a superb display of blocking and tackling from Jamie McDonnell, Gary Murphy and John Forde helped spoil New Ross’ hopes of staying in touch.
An early second half goal from John Lacey followed by points from Sean Stafford and Ciaran Kirwan made a difficult task for New Ross all but impossible. Despite the uphill battle they faced New Ross played with heart and spirit until the final whistle.
Best for CBS were Jamie McDonnell, John Forde, Gary Murphy, Eoin Roche, Ciaran Kirwan and Sean Stafford.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Adam Roche (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfield, 0-1); John Forde (Shelmaliers); Gary Murphy (St. Mary’s Maudlintown); Evan Dunbar (St. Martins); James Somers (Sarsfield); Eoin Roche (Sarsfield 0-1); Dale Scallan (Sarsfield 0-1); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfield 0-4); David Tormey (Clonard 2-1); Joe McBride (Volunteers 1-0); Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 2-6, capt); Keith Harpur (1-1).

St. Peter’s 0-12 2-3 Wexford CBS
Wexford CBS Under 16 Gaelic Footballers made the short trip to Summerhill to play their near neighbours St Peter’s on Friday. St Peter’s started well and looked the better side in the opeining minutes, registering four points without reply. Wexford CBS slowly began to imposed themselves on the game but struggled to score. Sean Stafford opened the account for CBS in the tenth minute but CBS continued to struggle to accrue a good return on the scoreboard for their efforts. The halftime score of St. Peter’s 0-7 to 0-3 CBS Wexford didn’t do justice to the endeavours of the CBS.
CBS started the second half like men possessed and a fisted goal by Eoin Roche from a Dale Scallan free brought the deficit to one point. However things were not going to be that easy St Peter’s returning the difference to four with three unanswered points. A lesser team may have rolled over at this stage but not CBS. They dug deep and doubled their efforts. Their efforts were rewarded in the 54th minute when Nicky Lawlor kicked the ball into the square, Eoin Roche jumped over everyone to get a fist to it and Sean Stafford was on hand for the breaking ball which he to drove to the back of the St Peter’s net. The difference was back to one point for a third time in the match. However an excellent St. Peter’s were not to be outdone on the day and rallied in the dying minutes to score two points. The final score was St. Peter’s 0-12 to 2-3 Wexford CBS.
Best for CBS were Liam Barry, Evan Dunbar, Eoin Roche and Sean Stafford.
Wexford CBS: Liam Barry (Sarsfield); Adam Roche (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfield); John Forde (Shelmaliers); Gary Murphy (St. Mary’s Maudlintown); Evan Dunbar (St. Martins); Richard Cleary (Clonard); Eoin Roche (Sarsfield 1-0); Dale Scallan (Sarsfield 0-1); Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfield); Gearoid Finn (St. Annes); Joe McBride (Volunteers 0-1); Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-1, capt); Keith Harpur .
