Bridport suffered double heartache on finals day of the Dorset Youth County Cup.
Seven different clubs won the seven competitions, but Bridport had to be content with runners-up medals.
The under-10 Mini-Soccer final was played in front of a large crowd and saw Poole Town Youth score early with a goal from Sam Eyre. And despite a lot of pressure, Bridport could not find an equaliser.
Poole then scored two more from Ryan Wiles and Louis McWilliams in the second half to take the trophy, although Finlay Davy did manage a deserved consolation for the West Dorset club.
The only hat-trick of the day was scored by Sam Darlow, as he helped Branksome United overcome Bridport in the under-14 final.
After going two down, the Bees came back strongly and reduced the deficit courtesy of Caine Lydon, only for Darlow to complete his treble and win the cup for Branksome.
Under-14 Final Branksome United (2) 3 Bridport (0) 1 (Sam Darlow 3) (Caine Lydon) Under-10 Final Bridport (0) 1 Poole Town (1) 3 (Finlay Davy) (Sam Eyre, Ryan Wiles, Lois McWilliams)
