Danum Eagles Under 18s defeated Derbyshire Arrows and reigning champions Cheshire Wire to continue their North Premier title assault.

Liam Knapp (pictured) scored 39 points in Saturday’s 97-93 win over the Arrows.

Coach Bob Martin said: “Liam was in fantastic form but it wasn’t just about the points he scored. His defence was unreal.”

Eagles followed that win up by beating Cheshire 71-55. They sit second in the table behind Manchester Magic with a 10-2 record.
