Whaley Bridge 1 Eagle Sports 1

EAGLE Sports kept their title hopes alive in the Cheshire League Division One on Saturday with a 1-1 draw at fellow challengers Whaley Bridge.

Eagle took an early lead when Ged McAllister pounced on a loose ball following a save from Owen Ellis’s header.

With the visitors still in control of the game, Whaley Bridge drew level due to a lapse of concentration in the Eagle defence.

The away side had control of possession through most of the second period but Whaley Bridge held on and looked the happier team to be coming away with a point in the title race.
