Dolphin seniors get off to a great start to 2018 in the AIL

 

  Dolphin seniors got off to a great start to 2018 in the AIL with a hard fought 12 – 9 win  against a fancied UCC side. 

UCC were first out of the blocks with a ‘soft’ penalty from a UCC maul after 10 minutes, which was converted by outhalf Peter Sylvester.  UCC kept the pressure on Dolphin for the next ten minutes but some solid defence meant they couldn’t turn the pressure into points.

Then it was Dolphin’s turn and they mauled well from a line out in their own half almost to the UCC 22. The backs took over and a couple of plays later Barry Keeshan sprinted towards a gap in the UCC defensive line only to be brought down by a high tackle. ‘Keesh’ slotted the resultant penalty to level the match.

    Great away 10 -6 win for Dolphin seniors. A strong pack gave Dolphin the edge in the first   half but a rare visit to the Dolphin 22 led to a penalty for Ballymena and a three point lead.  Dolphin continued to dominate up front but it was the 35th minute before they were      rewarded for their efforts when scrumhalf Daryl Foley touched down after multiple phases in   the Ballymena 22 by the forwards.
