CBS Juvenile B League

CBS Roscommon 3:16 

St Mary’s College Galway 3:13  

CBS Roscommon played the St Mary’s College Galway in the first Juvenile B-league knockout semi-final on 6th of December. It was an enthralling game with a late scare for C.B.S as a threatening shot skimmed the crossbar in the dying moments which would’ve brought the game to a draw. 

Aodhan Looby was superb throughout scoring 1:5 from open play and 0: 3 from frees. Both wing forwards were impeccable with Cormac Dolan scoring 3 points with DJ Hession adding 2 points late on into the second half.  

Ciaran Purcell made some crucial saves either side of half time whilst also distributing some mighty accurate kick outs to Edimar Filho and Conor Betts who dominated their aerial battles.  

The team sheet was as follows Ciaran Purcell, David Hough, Fionn Fagan, Michael Hussey, Ethan O’Reilly, Conor Kavanagh, James Connolly, Daniel Crehan, Diarmuid Harrington, Eoin Kelly, Tadhg Lyons, Conor Gannon, Conor Betts, Lee Kilcoyne, Edimar Filho, Wellington Da Silva, Aodhan Looby, DJ Hession, Shane Walsh, Cormac Dolan, Rodhan Dowd, Aidan Hoare, Ronan McDermott. Subs used: Michael Hussey for Rodhan Dowd, Wellington Da Silva for Fionn Fagan.
