HCGFL “ CHAIRMAN'S CUP “ GROUP B

Despite a late onslaught, the Under 10 Whites slipped to a narrow 3-2 defeat to Luton Town Belles in the first group fixture in the Chairmans Cup.

Luton started the brighter of the two teams and went ahead mid-way through the first half when Spurs failed to clear their lines from a corner. Luton doubled their lead when their skilful centre forward slipped past two Spurs defenders before coolly slipping the ball beyond the Spurs keeper.

Hannah Fenton-Burgess brought Spurs back into the game with 10 minutes remaining before Luton converted a penalty for handball to make the score 3-1. Spurs then kicked into life and Hannah Fenton-Burgess added her second with a well-taken goal to bring the arrears back to one goal. The girls battled hard in the closing stages but couldn't get the elusive equaliser.

Player of the match was captain Emma Lee for driving performance from the centre of midfield.

HCGFL “ U11 DIVISION 1

Spurs U11 Blues ran up another goal-laden league victory, as they reached double figures against Hitchin Town Belles.

With the home side committed to defending, Spurs had to be patient and ten minutes had elapsed before the Champions finally opened the floodgates. Spurs passing game was too much for a dogged Hitchin side and once the halfway mark came, Spurs found themselves ten-nil ahead.

The second period was played in the same style, with another eight goals being added as Tottenham pressed home their advantage. Three players were making their full league debut for Spurs - Georgia Miller who fired home seven goals; Jemma McCarthy, who was dominant in defence, also added to the goal tally and the newest member Loren Humphreys showed some very good qualities and also grabbed her first goal for Spurs.

Spurs controlled the game well and into the second half, Charlotte Chaloner picked up a cross and scored to make it two.

Abigail Barrett and Player of the Match Monique Thompson could not penetrate the defence for another goal and in the dying seconds, the opposition snatched a goal, but the three points were already secure.

Tottenham Hotspur U12 Whites 8
HCGFL “ U12 DIVISION 1

Looking more like themselves after last weeks loss, the Spurs Under-12s bounced back with a convincing win.

Five minutes in and Ruth Collett delivered a nice pass to Laura Newby and the Spurs striker smashed the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0. Charlotte McLucas was then the provider for Newby to launch a shot over the keeper's head to make it 2-0 after 12 minutes. Tottenham added a third goal when Collett shot under the keepers body and then made it four with a scrambled effort. When Colletts shot was parried Newby pounced to make it 5-0 right on half-time.

Within 45 seconds of the restart Tori Tripp slammed the ball past the keeper to score her first of the day and this was followed, a minute later, when Newby fired a bouncing ball into the net to make it 7-0.

Shoshana Field had to make two good saves, but then Bobbi Cubberley ran down the right and although her shot was well saved by the keeper, Tripp was on hand to deliver the final blow to make it 8-0.

Three minutes before half-time, Hemel forged ahead only to have Georgia Bruce bringing the scores level to 3-3 in the 34th minute.

Four minutes into the second half, Mustafa put Spurs ahead for the first time, but it took Hemel only two minutes to draw level at 4-4. Sixteen minutes into play, Hemel went ahead again due to some lazy defending, but Daisy OSullivan had to make two good saves to give Spurs a chance of closing the gap. With just two minutes remaining before the end of the game, Whitney Tango tucked the ball into the net from inside the six-yard box to make the score 5-5 in a thrilling match.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 Whites 3
HCGFL “ U14 DIVISION 1

A hat-trick from Tarn Harris ensured Spurs took all three points from this match against league newcomers Leigh Rockets.

The first was an easy tap in from a Chloe Gunn, but Nicola Davey had to be alert in goal as the Rockets tried to probe a way through the defence and on one occasion made a save just outside the box creating a mad scramble as she was unable to handle the ball. Leasha Ngotho unselfishly set up her striking partner for number two with a square pass that left Harris with a clear strike on goal.

Despite the two-nil deficit Rockets continued to go forward and got five minutes before half time an angled drive across the keeper put them back in the game.

Spurs played some better football after the interval and when Rhiannon Kellys pinpoint cross was despatched into the net by a magnificent header by Tarn that gave the goalkeeper no chance the scoring was complete and the three points were Tottenham's.

Spurs took the lead after 11 minutes when Bethany Hunter-Scott latched onto a good through ball from Alex Small. Spurs continued to have the majority of possession without making any real clear cut opportunities.

Spurs sat back on the lead in the early stages of the second half and were suitably punished with two goals in a five minute spell mid-way through the half. Whilst pressing for a late equalizer, Spurs were caught on the break to a goal with a hint of offside about it.

(After extra time; Croydon win 5-2 on penalties)
LONDON COUNTY CUP “ ROUND 1

Spurs Reserves had a set-back before the game even began, with five players being delayed in traffic, which meant a makeshift team starting the match with defender Jenny Curtis taking the gloves in goal.

Against the odds, Spurs took a 2-0 lead as they started well. It was not long before the THLFC defence was called into action and two good goal-line clearances from Dom Clarke and Mary Griffiths kept the score at 2-0. However, this was not to last and Croydon got two quick goal beating the stand-in keeper to level the scores.

The second half started with Tottenham pressuring the Croydon defence, but they just could not get the ball into the back of the net.

SOUTH-EAST & LONDON WOMENS REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE “ PREMIER DIVISION

A freak goal condemned Spurs Ladies to a narrow defeat by Acton Sports Club.

A positive start to the game by Spurs pressed Acton beck for the majority of the first half, but five minutes before half time, Acton had won a corner kick and the ball slipped through a defender's leg at the near post to go straight in and give the home side the lead against the run of play.

The second half was more open affair as Spurs tried to push for the equaliser, which left them a little exposed at the back and Acton had a few half chances which went high and wide. Ten minutes before the end Faye Callaway whipped in a cross which Chanelle Breen tried to meet, but the keeper clattered into her, with no foul awarded by the referee.

After that Spurs threw everything forward in vain to score, but the game finished with Acton hanging on to their slender lead.
