Bray People - - Bray Sport -

Ark­low CBS 2-10, Ark­low Com­mu­nity Col­lege 2-5: The County Wick­low Post Pri­mary Schools first year foot­ball cham­pi­onship started in glo­ri­ous sun­shine at Pearse’s Park on Wed­nes­day with a game be­tween St Kevin’s CBS and Ark­low Com­mu­nity Col­lege.

The CBS lads dom­i­nated the first half and set up wave af­ter wave of at­tack. How­ever, they met a re­silient de­fence in which goal­keeper Ryan Mur­ray was out­stand­ing.

When­ever the Com­mu­nity Col­lege lads did get the ball up­field they found the big­ger CBS lads and Jamie Cullen in par­tic­u­lar, dif­fi­cult to get past.

At half time the score was CBS 1-5 CC 0-0, a mar­gin that did not flat­ter the leaders.

Roles were very much re­versed in the sec­ond half. The Com­mu­nity Col­lege team were trans­formed and gained most of the pos­ses­sion. They scored 2-5 in this half but the CBS also got some fine scores to equal their first half to­tal and go on for a 210 to 2-5 victory.

The win­ners had fine de­fend­ers in Michael Walker, Keith Mor­daunt and Jamie Cullen. Sean Hur­ley was a good ball car­rier at mid­field while Keilin Walker caught the eye in at­tack.

Apart from Ryan Mur­ray other to catch the eye for the Com­mu­nity Col­lege were Michael Doyle, Vin­cent Lam­bert, Paddy Mel­lon and Olagh Red­mond.

Ark­low CBS: Sean Hud­son, Michael Walker, Enda Dempsey, Jamie Cullen, Keith Mor­daunt, Eoin Car­roll, Sean Hur­ley, Malachy Bren­nan, Martin Gil­bert, Kyle Jor­dan, Keilin Walker, An­thony Kelly, Nathan Doyle.

Ark­low CC: Ryan Mur­ray, Ma­son Mid­dle­ton, Michael Doyle, Colin Kennedy, Sean Loughran, Sean Len­non, Vin­cent Lam­bert, Paddy Mel­lon, Luke Walker, Gra­ham Whit­more, Olagh Red­mond, Mark O’Con­nell, Keith Byrne.

The ju­nior hurlers of Coláiste Bhride Carnew have been per­form­ing im­pres­sively against Kilkenny op­po­si­tion. They de­feated Coláiste Cois Siuire Moon­coin 1-6 to 1-5 and went down nar­rowly to Gren­nan Col­lege Thomas­town.

Mean­while the County Wick­low qual­i­fy­ing groups for South Le­in­ster Ju­nior D and Se­nior C1 hurl­ing are down to the fi­nals. In the se­nior De La Salle Col­lege Wick­low qual­i­fied for the fi­nal when beat­ing Abbey Com­mu­nity Col­lege by 8-7 to 7-6.

Their op­po­nents will be St David’s Grey­stones and that game will be played on Thurs­day.

In the ju­nior semi fi­nals Abbey Com­mu­nity Col­lege Wick­low trav­elled to Grey­stones and scored a 5-12 to 3-6 win. The other semi fi­nal also pro­vided away win­ners as De La Salle Col­lege went to Rath­drum and over­came Avon­dale Com­mu­nity Col­lege by 4-14 to 2-10.


An im­pres­sive St Mary’s Col­lege Ark­low team scored a good win over a gal­lant Ark­low Com­mu­nity Col­lege to reach the quar­ter fi­nal.


The School’s Board con­grat­u­lates Leighton Glynn, a past pupil of De La Salle Col­lege, on his se­lec­tion on the Ir­ish In­ter­na­tional Rules team to tour Aus­tralia.

Leighton is Wick­low’s GAA am­bas­sador and is avail­able to the schools for coach­ing and pro­mo­tional work. He is likely to be in much de­mand when he re­turns from Aus­tralia.
