Ipswich Town U19s 1-1 Spurs
Pat Holland described the first 20 minutes of this draw as 'our best football in ages'.
Some fine possession play saw Andy Barcham (pictured) strike the woodwork in that spell before winning the penalty that Jamie O'Hara converted for 1-0.
However, Ipswich equalised in a more even second half and the points were shared.
Coach Pat reflected: "We passed the ball really, really well in that first 20 minutes, hit the post after about 10 minutes from Andy Barcham and then went ahead, good ball into Andy again, he got across his defender, brought down for a penalty and Jamie O'Hara slotted it.
"Then the game became a little more physical but we tried to keep our football going.
"The second half was more even and both sides looked to create. We got into some good areas but then a ball into the box, an unforced error fell to their player who finished well.
"So it ended 1-1 and we were a little disappointed because I thought we deserved the points."
Spurs U19s: Eyre, Ifil, McKie (Francis, 70), McKenna, Foster (Seanla, 75), Dobson, Maghoma, Barcham, Malcolm, OHara, Daniels. Unused sub: Hodges.
