Lewis Nightingale gained the bragging rights over his brothers James and Oliver in the annual charity football match at Rawdon Old Boys.
Early estimates say that the game in aid of Cancer Research UK and in the memory of their grandfather Malcolm Green, raised £1,500.
Lewis’ team won the game 3-2 on penalties after a 2-2 draw over 90 minutes.
Horsforth’s Premier League referee Jon Moss was in charge of the match which saw Oliver put his team 1-0 up after 20 minutes.

His side contained Huddersfield Town youngster Jordan Sinnott and Dean Windass’ son Josh.
Lewis, who plays for Evo Stik Division One North side Mossley, had FC United of Manchester striker Tom Greaves up-front with Brighouse Town man Ben Thornton playing alongside him.
Greaves scored the equaliser with a powerful low strike before Oliver scored again to put his side in front at half-time with a header from a Windass free kick.

It looked like Oliver and James would earn the bragging rights until Thornton struck late-on to send the game to penalties – which Lewis’ team won.
Lewis said: “There was lots of interest and a lot of people helped out getting the pitch and ground ready. We had a lot of interest from family and friends and the ground was full of people from the area.”
