Newcastle Westgate Warriors 1 Alnwick Town 3
Pin Point Recruitment Junior League, U11 La Liga 1
Alnwick took home all the points after a good win in Newcastle.
Alnwick went in front on six minutes thanks to a firm low shot from Joe Ainsley following good work on the right by Owen Johnson.
Westgate Warriors kept up the pressure and drew level on 15 minutes when Max Page was just beaten.
A well-organised defence by Alnwick skipper Harry Felton meant the sides went in at half-time level at 1-1.
The second half was dominated by Alnwick but without any joy. Joe Ainsley, Elliot Wass, Tom Forster and Ross Edwards should have scored when clean through, but all efforts were well-saved by the Warriors keeper.
Frustration was starting to show, but two quick-fire goals in the dying minutes from Ainsley and James Crisp put Alnwick out of sight and all three points went up the A1 northbound to Alnwick.
