Wexford CBS v Ard Scoil Rathangan (Kildare)
at Eire Og, Carlow
Ard Scoil Rathangan………………..1-13
A dominant wind assisted first half by Kildare school Ard Scoil Rathangan was enough to see off any hopes of Wexford CBS claiming the South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ title at Eire Og, Carlow last Friday.
The Wexford lads were trailing by 1-9 to 0-3 at the break and found it difficult to handle the bigger and better Kildare students. They racked up the points rather too easily and had the CBS defence in bother with a sharp attacking unit led by Stefan Lawlor.
The CBS forwards found it very hard to get possession and all they had to show for the first half were three points by Joe Coleman, Sean Stafford and Jamie McDonnell.
Any hopes that the wind would lead to a change in fortunes for the Boker boys were quickly dashed as Rathangan cleverly kept control of the game. CBS tried their best to get back into the match but their efforts were well contained by the Kildare defence.
Sean Stafford notched a second point and Eoin Roche got the fifth point for Wexford CBS but they needed goals to cut the deficit and chances were few and far between.
Corner-back Jason Kearns is the only team member sitting the Leaving Certificate in June so this team will be largely intact next year and if they increase their efforts a South Leinster title is within their grasp.
Best on the day for the CBS – coached by Wexford senior footballer Cillian Kehoe and Peter Kirwan – were Evan Dunbar, Jamie McDonnell and Sean Stafford.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Adam Roche (Clonard), Liam Barry (Sarsfields), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields); Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfields), David Tormey (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields, 0-1), Joe Coleman (St. Martin’s, 0-1), Sean Donoghue (Sarsfields); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields, 0-1), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s, 0-2), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields).
Subs: Conor Fenlon (Glynn-Barntown) for Doyle, Emmet Fox (Crossabeg-Ballymurn) for Lawlor.
South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ semi-final
Wednesday January 23rd
At Eire Og, Carlow
Colaiste Eoin (Hacketstown)……2-14
WEXFORD CBS qualified for the South Leinster Football ‘C’ final following this narrow four point extra-time victory over a gallant Colaiste Eoin (Hacketstown) side last Wednesday in Eire Og’s pitch in Carlow.
CBS had to dig deep to earn this victory and it was heartening to see the team display guts and determination to come from behind in normal time, take a one point lead at the death but see their opponents force extra time with the last kick of the match.
However, the Wexford students regrouped during extra-time to forge ahead and they even managed to keep the Carlow side scoreless during the second period of extra-time to grind out the victory and seal their place in the South Leinster final.
CBS, with all but one of the team available again next year, were slow out of the blocks and suffered as Colaiste Eoin surged ahead with two goals in the opening stages. The Boker boys rallied and came into the game with goals from Ciaran Kirwan and Joe Coleman but they still trailed at half-time by 2-7 to 2-3.
Eoin Roche’s pointed frees were instrumental in CBS clawing their way back into the game as the Hacketstown defenders found it difficult to handle the CBS attack and had to resort to fouling in an effort to halt them.
Wing-back Sean Donohue made a welcome comeback following a lengthy injury and he galloped up from wing-back on two occasions to slot over points. Hacketstown were under pressure at this stage and when Ciaran Kirwan found the net, it looked good for CBS.
However, a last minute point from the Carlow school left the score at 3-9 to 2-12 and thus forced extra-time. The Wexford school out-pointed the opposition by four points to two in the first period of extra-time as Eoin Roche (two from play), Nicky Lawlor and Jamie McDonnell put their side in front at the turn-around by 3-13 to 2-14.
The hard work was nearly done at that stage as the Carlow boys wilted and failed to score for the remainder of the game. Eoin Roche and Joe Coleman powered ahead and rounded off the game with points as the CBS boys celebrated a fine victory.
Best on the day for CBS, who had good performances from all 15, were Evan Dunbar, hard-working centre-back Liam Barry, Jamie McDonnell, Joe Coleman, Eoin Roche and Ciaran Kirwan.
Their final opponents are unknown but will come from the Kildare and Wicklow side of the draw.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), Adam Roche (Clonard); Sean Donohue (Sarsfields, 0-2), Liam Barry (Sarsfields), Cian Doyle (Sarsfields); Nicky Lawlor (Sarsfields, 0-1), David Tormey (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields, 0-1), Joe Coleman (St. Martin’s, 1-2), Joe Redmond (Shelmaliers); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 0-9, 6 frees), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields, 2-0).
Subs: Mikey Lawlor (Volunteers) for Lawlor, Conor Fenlon (Glynn-Barntown) for Redmond, also Keith Harpur (Volunteers), Richie Cleary (Clonard), Kenny Rawson (St. Anne’s), Gavin Byrne (Clonard), Jack Creane (Sarsfields), Aaron McGuire (Volunteers).
A strong second half performance saw Wexford CBS through to the last four of the South Leinster Senior Football ‘C’ championship when they overpowered the Thomastown students in Pairc Charman last Friday.
CBS led by 1-5 to 1-2 at the break but they eventually wore down their Kilkenny opponents with a burst of scores in the third quarter while the Wexford defence only conceded one point in that second period.
Sean Stafford grabbed the first goal for the Boker boys but CBS couldn’t shake off the Grennan lads despite dominating possession. The heavy conditions ensured the going was tough but both sets of players ensured the match was a sporting one.
CBS took off in the new half when corner forward Eoin Roche added a goal to his three points from the first half. Michael Lawlor tagged on two points while Joe Coleman and Jamie McDonnell also added points.
The full-forward line for CBS proved to be lethal as they finished with all but three points of the team’s total. Joe Coleman sealed the win when he finished a well worked move in the 57th minute by lashing the ball to the net.
Best for CBS, who are managed by Wexford senior footballer Killian Kehoe, were John Forde, Evan Dunbar, Jamie McDonnell, Ciaran Kirwan and Eoin Roche. Next up is an away semi-final versus Colaiste Eoin Hacketstown.
Wexford CBS: Brad Cohen (St. Martin’s); Jason Kearns (Volunteers), Evan Dunbar (St. Martin’s), John Forde (Shelmaliers); Cian Doyle (Sarsfields), Liam Barry (Sarsfields), Adam Roche (Clonard); Jamie McDonnell (Sarsfields 0-1), David Tormey (Clonard); Michael Lawlor (Volunteers 0-2), Ciaran Kirwan (Sarsfields), Dylan Hynes (Clonard); Eoin Roche (Sarsfields 1-5), Sean Stafford (St. Martin’s 1-1), Joe Coleman (St. Martin’s 1-1).

Wexford CBS Vs Gaelcholaiste Ceatharloch
Wexford CBS 1-3
Gaelcholaiste Ceatharloch 0-12
Wexford CBS bowed out of the senior football to a very strong Carlow outfit on Wednesday last. Despite a very honest, hardworking performance from the Wexford lads, last years south leinster winners Gaelcholaiste Ceatharlach ( who had 12 members and 3 subs from last years winning team on display) showed that they will be very difficult to stop again this year.
Wexford started well with Eoin Roche, Peter Furlong, and Dale Scallan taking the fight to Carlow and Evan Dunbar and Goalkeeper Bradley Cohn performing heroics at the back. However some wasteful shooting and excellent defending ment that Wexford were not rewarded for their posession and went in at half time down by 7 points.
It was an uphill task in the second half but the Boker boys never stopped attacking and did reduce the deficite with a Graham Murphy goal with 15 minutes to go. Their efforts began to take a toll as they began to tire and an injury to hard working midfielder John Bridges ment that Carlow could pick off some fine scores to finish out comfortable winners.
It was a pity to see some fine servants of football in the CBS Pierce Dooley, Peter Furlong, Emmet O Connor and Dylan Lawlor finish their time with us in this manner but on the other side, the future looks bright for the 9 juniors who performed so well and must have impressed the onlooking County minor management. Special mention must go to Jason Kearns and John Forde who despite constant pressure from physically bigger players were outstanding at full and corner back and would have to split the man of the match award on this occasion.
