We twice came back from two-goal deficits, Harry McKirdy and Callum O’Hare putting Villa 2-0 up within the opening 10 minutes before goals from Ryan Loft and Anthony Georgiou brought us back on level terms.
Kevin Toner restored Villa's lead three minutes into the second half, before Rushian Hepburn-Murphy made it 4-2.
Cy Goddard and Chris Paul responded for us to level things up again but, after Channing Campbell-Young was sent off when he was adjudged to have brought down the onrushing Hepburn-Murphy as the last man, Hepburn-Murphy rounded off the scoring on 68 minutes.
Spurs: Priestley, Paul, Muscatt (Amos 63), Owens (Stylianides 70), Campbell-Young, Walkes, Hayford, Goddard, Loft, Ross, Georgiou (Daly 70). Substitute (not used): Voss (GK).
