Only a couple games played at Crookhaven Oval last weekend with the minis and a couple away games.  The mods and internationals had a bye due to the representative footy round.  Well done to our players, Kaleb Stewart, Sam Colgate and Tom Latta.

U9s Culburra vs Milton Ulladulla: The U9s played well over the weekend against Milton Ulladulla winning 32-26. A hat trick went to Yusuf Elniz and the other try scorers were Navron Innes, Lachlan Fairweather, Toby Lindsay.  Goals went to Lachlan Quinn, Navron Innes, Lachlan Fairweather, Brycen Weston-Marsh x2. It was a great defensive game. Kye Wells, Kaine Quarmby and Man of the Match, Carter Britton, really held the other team at bay.   

U10s Warilla vs Culburra: U10s ran out winners with a 56-10 thrashing over Warilla. Tries went to Ashton Jefferson x4, Luke Butler x2, Wyle Brandon, Zara Branson, Jayson Cooper and Jarrah Gibbs. Goals to Ben Walmsley, Noah Watson, Wyl Brandon, Jayson Cooper, Jarrah Gibbs, Ashton Jefferson, Max Lewis and Tyrone Murphy-Sebbens. Man of the Match went to Ashton Jefferson with his outstanding efforts. Massive congratulations to Zara Branson for scoring her first try for the Dolphins.

U6s Milton-Ulladulla vs Culburra: The U6's played a good game but were defeated by Milton Ulladulla Blue 40-20. Outstanding footwork from Labron Welsh scoring 1 try, Jenson Coughlan scoring another 2 tries, Huey Piert and Kodi Knight making some big runs with 1 try each. Special mention to Mason Melrose and Riley Spurway who were tackling machines. Man of the Match went to Mason Melrose for his unreal defence.

U8s Culburra vs Milton Ulladulla: An awesome effort by all the kids that played. U8s lost to Milton Ulludulla 30-16. The game showed how much the team has improved.  Ulladulla put 50 on us last time but this round the Dolphins came a whisker of beating them. After going down 22-0 early, everyone pulled together to get the game back to 22-16 through good hard play before 2 late tries took the game away from us.

Chayse tackled everything that moved with one of the best defensive games for anyone this season. Riley came centimetres from scoring his first try. Patrick and Curtis ran strongly and Noah made a great individual run.
