The Final

CONISTON TAVERN FC 1 – 1 BERMUDA PARK FC -Coniston Tavern FC won 5-4 on Penalty Kicks
In the early kick off at Liberty Way on Sunday both teams started strongly but the defences held out, with both forward lines struggling to create chances, and it was 0 – 0 at the break Bermuda Park almost opened the scoring on 55minues when Bermuda’s Ashley Mantack chased a ball to the goal line, before hitting the post from an acute angle.
Coniston quickly found their “A” game and were in front on 68minues when Torren Sippitts found the net from close range.  The game then changed when Coniston had a player “Red carded” for violent conduct, and Bermuda took their chance, when after a spell of pressure, they were awarded a penalty for hand ball, which was converted by Ashley Mantack.
The 10 men of Coniston held out for the remaining few minutes to send the tie into Penalty Kicks. Drama still to come both converting 3 penalties each, when Bermuda’s 4th was saved only for the referee to order it retaken after the keeper came off his line to early. The game was finally settled when Bermuda missed the 5th penalty, and Coniston took their chance to win the tie.
