CBS Hurling

CBS senior hurlers beat their near neighbours Roscommon Community College in an excellent Senior hurling league game played in ideal conditions in Tremane GAA club on Tuesday last. CBS started well with good scores from Oran’s Darragh Walsh and Athleague’s Ben McGahon. As the half wore on, Community College piled the pressure on and fine scores from Mickey Joe Egan meant the sides were level at half time at six points apiece. Early in the second half Community College took over with two early goals and two points from a lively full forward line. CBS missed some crucial frees in this period and looked like they were in trouble. However a few positional changes for the CBS meant that they refund their impetus and with Jack Lohan , Peter Gillolly, Oisin Kelly and Orin Walsh piling on scores the CBS overturned a big deficit into a one point victory. CC had a few chances late on but CBS defended stoutly especially from John Martin Oran and Kyle Walsh Tremane. A good game all round and a good advertisement for  local hurling. The final score was CBS 1-13  ,    Roscommon Community College  2-9. CBS play St Jarlath’s in Senior Hurling on Monday the 18th in the Centre of Excellence in Bekan at 12. All support welcome. A huge thank you to Tremane GAA for providing the pitch for recent CBS games
