Underage News

For the 2018-19 season Dolphin & Crosshaven have agreed to combine their resources and enter joint teams at U16 & U18 levels. It is a very good arrangement for both sides as they work on increasing their numbers for next year. We welcome the players & parents and hopefully it will be a good season for them all.

Last week the  U16 side had a winning start being convincing winners over Old Christians 32-24. 

Dolphin kick off their 28th AIL Campaign in Cashel on Saturday. Lets hope we get back to winning ways on our first Division 2A game. It is great to see our minis are travelling in strength, U9's, U10's, U11's & U12's will play Cashel sides and stay on to support the Seniors.

Good luck to all sides. 

Dolphin commence their J2 League campaign this evening taking on Cork Constitution this (Friday) evening at 7.30pm in Temple Hill.

Why not come out on this lovely evening and give them your support.

2nds League   Cork Constitution 33 Dolphin 15

Dolphin had a bright start with a try from full back Alan O'Sullivan after just four minutes. Dolphin dominated the first quarter but slowly the home side got into the game and two converted tries within minutes of each other put them 14-5 ahead at the break.

Cork Constitution kept the pressure on early in the 2nd half and a 3rd try put them 19-5 ahead. But Dolphin did not give up, they replied with a try from close quarters from prop Luke Jordan to reduce the gap to 19-10.

In the last 15 minutes first Dolphin then Cork Constitution lost a man to the sin bin and the extra space led to a further three tries, Dolphin's was aother forward effort with Luke Jordan being credited with the score.  

 

It was quite a entertaining game despite it being in a very wet and windy Rathcooney between Old Christian J1's and a Dolphin U20/J1 side, made up of mainly U20's.

The physically bigger Old Christians side with the wind at their back dominated the opening half, building up a 19-0 lead until Eoin Hodkinson opened Dolphin's account in the final play of the first half. 

Mid way through the 2nd half Will Black, having been earlier denied ,scored a try, converted by Ryan O'Herlihy. In the final play prop Luke Jordan was not going to be denied and he made it 17-19 before Ryan O'Herlihy equalised with the conversion.
