Conifers crowned super seven kings
CONIFERS Primary School beat holders Holy Trinity 4-1 (after extra time) to become the South Dorset seven-a-side champions for the first time since 2007.
The talented boys have been representing their school since Year Four and have now won their first trophy with a convincing display at Wyke Regis Junior School, which was refereed superbly by Bob Brittain.
Conifers took an early lead with a close-range shot by central defender Bailey Rowe after good work down the wing by the talented Jacob Coombs.
Conifers took control of the game with the energetic Harrison Burley dominating the centre of midfield.
But after all their dominance, a Holy Trinity centre-forward was left unmarked in front of goal and made no mistake with a volley past the advancing goalkeeper Matthew White.
Five minutes each way of extra-time meant that Conifers had to raise their game and go in search of another goal.
It was Burley who forced the ball into the Holy Trinity net to give Conifers an early lead and with two late goals by fox in the box Jordan Coulter, meant that his side clinched the cup.
Conifers team manager Don Whistance, said: “The boys deserved to win this trophy as they were beaten by Holy Trinity 2-0 in last year’s final when they were in Year Five.
“This year they were much stronger and more skilful and were able to maintain their high standard of energy during extra-time.”
