Ajani Burchall and his Bournemouth Under-18 teammates snatched a late win thanks to Jake Adams' goal three minutes from time in a 1-0 away victory at Leyton Orient.
On a challenging pitch and again fielding a young side that included six-under-16s due to a host of injuries, Bournemouth claimed all three points in their latest Merit League encounter.
Buoyed by the return of second-year midfielder Matt Burgess, in the first half, Bournemouth's keeper Ollie Camis blocked well to keep Orient out, while the away side missed two good chances.
Baylin Johnson couldn't take a chance in front of the goal while Abdi Mohamed flicked the ball up and volleyed only to be denied at point-blank range.
In the second half, Adams had a shot saved after a Marcus Daws cutback, though Camis had to be alive to smother a through ball as Orient threatened.
Into the closing stages and Lewis Brown's diagonal pass found Adams' forward run and the forward faced his defender up, took him on, and then slotted into the far corner to win the match.
