AN acrobatic finger-tip save by Josh Willsher just before the final whistle confirmed Eccleshill Eagles' 3-2 victory at Alpha Juniors in the Craven, Aire & Wharfe Junior League Under-14 Division C.

A quick goal from Tom McMahon, set up by James Hebb, put the Eagles on the front foot and, although Alpha equalised with a thunderous shot from a breakaway, Ben Holdsworth restored Eccleshill's lead from a corner just before half-time.

An extravagant looping shot by Kieron Heptinstall made it 3-1, but Alpha hit back with a second goal, despite the best efforts of James Spivey and Hebb, but couldn't force a leveller.
