Business as usual for unbeaten Dolphins

THE Broulee Dolphins consolidated their domination over the rest of the competition with a nail-biting 28-20 win over the Batemans Bay Boars on Saturday.Chris Prow’s 78th- minute field goal secured the win and local bragging rights after the Boars almost pulled off a thrilling comeback.Broulee was completely dominant in the first half and looked as though it would run away with the match when it led 15-nil at the break.But whatever Batemans Bay captain-coach Dave Silversides said to his players at half-time worked a treat.Tries to Cory Maddison, Matt Absolum and Jim Thomas, as well as five points from the boot of Dave Warner, ensured the Boars outscored their fierce rivals in the second half.However, that second-half burst wasn’t enough to catch the Dolphins who did enough to clinch back-to-back wins over the Boars and maintain their 100 per cent record this season.With several penalties and handling errors slowing play down in the centre of the park, both teams got off to slow starts until Broulee struck in the 19th minute.Back-rower Brad Dunkley somehow barged his way through four Batemans Bay defenders after a well-worked Broulee lineout.Pat McMahon had a rare miss on his conversion attempt and it looked as though the score would remain 5-nil at the break.That was until the 38th minute when the Dolphins extended their lead through winger Justin Austin.McMahon drew his marker and then released Austin, who rounded several Bay defenders with pace to score out wide.The situation only got worse for the Boars in the lead-up to half-time as Broulee added another try just seconds before the buzzer.Prow’s long pass from the base of the ruck put PJ Cullen in the corner for 15-nil.The Boars eventually responded in the 48th minute when Warner slotted a penalty goal before Maddison, who was again brilliant at fullback, showed great determination for the Boars’ first try five minutes later.McMahon’s penalty goal three minutes later extended the Dolphins’ lead back to 10.The centre was in the thick of the action again on the hour mark when he converted his own try from right in front for 25-8.Batemans Bay hit back with two tries in as many minutes to ensure a nervy finish but Prow’s quick thinking 90 seconds from the full-time whistle put the result beyond doubt.Follow @Dean_Benson14NoneThis story Administrator ready to work first appeared on 苏州美甲培训学校.
