Performance of the Week: Boyne CS chalk up memorable victory


Boyne Community School put in an outstanding performance to win the Leinster Colleges JHC C title after a convincing 5-24 to 0-9 win over Lucan CBS Wednesday afternoon in Abbotstown.

The victory was achieved thanks partly to a five-star performance by Meath minor hurling captain Kyle Ennis who finished with a personal tally of 3-12.

Boyne started the brighter with three points on the bounce from Ennis and points from Sean Howley and Daniel Murray before they scored the first goal following great work from club mates Ronan Healy and Cathal Barron. A long ball delivered by Healy and the move ended up with Kyle Ennis finishing to the net.

Boyne had further points from Rian Fay, son of Meath great Darren and his club mate Mark Leavy finished the first quarter with two points of his own. Lucan CBS couldn’t get a puck out off thanks to the Boyne half back line of Anthony Healy, Aaron O’Roukre and captain Padraig Walsh.

They were helped by Rathmoylan man Sean Howley who cleaned up on the breaking ball throughout the game. Lucan replied with two points of their own before the excellent goalkeeping of Caemerhon Smyth stopped a certain goal. He was aided by the brilliant performances from his full back line of Conor McNally, Eoin Coffey and David Regan, who is still only a third year.

The second-half was all one traffic and further goals from Ennis and Mark Leavy left no way back for a gallant Lucan CBS team who never gave up right to the end. Boyne had great performances all over the pitch and throughout the campaign.

This team has now gone unbeaten winning the North Leinster and Leinster championships under the guidance of mentors Cathal Brien (Kiltale) Brendan Mckoen (Kildalkey).

What a performance from Boyne CS. What a week for hurling in the school.
