Clonakilty 24: Dolphin 17

Clonakilty reached the final of U13 development cup with a thrilling victory over Dolphin in Mahon last Saturday.

Electing to play against the breeze in the first half Clon kept the ball in hand with their forwards battling hard up front. Great ball possession and passing was on show and it wasn’t long until Captain Patrick McCarthy scored one of his trade mark tries.

Dolphin however were to prove very formidable up front and started to cut Clon’s supply of running ball. They levelled the game 5 minutes later. Credit the West Cork lads they came back at Dolphin and got another try through a maul on the line eventually touched down by Patrick McCarthy.

 Leaving the score at halftime 10- 5.

Dolphin started very strongly in the second half camping on the Clon line. They eventually crossed for a try after sustained pressure. 10 all, game on, Clon woke up and went at the Dolphin defence with the backs moving some lovely ball , that man Patrick McCarthy used his speed to loop around their winger to score his third try and was converted by Tom Ryan. Dolphin struck 10 minutes later with their own converted try. 17 all with two minutes to go, any ones game. A great scrum by Clon gave the platform to release the back line, out half Ronan Hayes fed the ball to Patrick McCarthy who drew his man before he passed to Killian O’Herilhy who popped a pass to Elliott Ager steaming into the line from full back. He had only one to beat with Odhran O ‘Connell in support on the wing but he cut inside to score the try of the day. Tom Ryan converted again and the final whistle was blown. Victory to the red and green and on to their first final!

A great display by all especially the backs!
