THE Frankston Dolphins scored a come-from-behind win in their first game under lights at home.

The match was the first played under the new lights at Skybus Stadium. The Dolphins played host to the Northern Bullants on Thursday night.

Despite being down by two points at three-quarter-time, the Dolphins were able to claw their way back to secure a gritty 13 point win.

The Northern Bullants are recovering from a rocky period in their history. Carlton Football Club ended its affiliation with the side in 2020, which looked like it could be a death blow for the 139-year-old club. The Bullants were not set to be part of the eventually cancelled 2020 VFL season, but are back on board for 2021.

The Dolphins defeated the Bullants 11.4 (70) to 8.9 (57).
