Enfield Town Ladies U13 A 1
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U13 2
Home Counties Girl's Football League - Division 1
Spurs Ladies U13 were looking to maintain their position at the top of the HCGFL - Div 1 Table when they visited the Walkers Cricket Ground on a cool and sunny afternoon.  Kick off was ten minutes later than scheduled and the pitch was grassy in places and smaller than the girls were used to playing on.

Spurs looked likely to score first, when Renata Inniss' left foot shot went over the crossbar in the first minute of the game.  A second chance came in the ninth minute through Nikki Hunnable where her shot was just wide of the goal post.  However, Spurs Ladies conceded a goal five minutes later from a well struck high ball that Daisy O’Sullivan was unable to hang onto.

A rather laid back approach to the match suddenly began to come alive, but not in full flow.  Enfield Town, with fire in their nostrils, began to throw everything at the Spurs defence, who managed to contain the onslaught.  In the twenty second minute of play, a long searching ball from midfield found Whitney Tango, who ran at the Enfield defence and was eventually brought down in the penalty area.  The referee consulted the assistant referee who left the decision to the referee.  Justice was swift when the ball was half cleared from the awarded throw-in and Whitney Tango latched onto it inside the 18 yard box to bring the scores level.  

Spurs were busy at the start of the second half and within four minutes of play, Renata Inniss' attempt on the Enfield goal from the six yard box was cleared off the line by the Enfield defence.

Both teams were engaged in a battle of wits for the next twenty minutes without altering the score line.  Daisy had to make a couple of vital saves whilst shots from Laura Smith sailed over the Enfield cross bar.  Nikki Hunnable was again busy down the right wing delivering those crucial crosses, but the Enfield goalkeeper was well positioned each time.  Katie Mills may be wondering why a free kick was given against her when she made a clean tackle outside the Spurs 18 yard box from which Enfield could not capitalise.  

In the 29th minute, a through ball from Taylor O’Leary in midfield found Renata, who helped it on to Whitney inside the Enfield penalty area.  A little shimmy followed by a low driven shot gave Spurs a 2-1 lead. The next six minutes showed signs of Enfield tiring with Spurs not making any further impact.

A thrilling game entertained all watching the proceedings, with Spurs being the deserve winners.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U13 3
St. Albans City Youth U13 0
Home Counties Girl's Football League - U13 Division 1
Spurs Ladies U13 maintained their unbeaten record on a chilled afternoon with intermittent spells of sunshine against St Albans City Youth U13 at Fredrick Knights Sports Ground. 

Shianne St. Louis wore the number 1 shirt in the absence of goalkeeper Daisy O’Sullivan. 

As the match got going, Georgia Bruce (left wing) and Nikki Hunnable (right wing) were busy getting into the face of the St. Albans defence in the first twelve minutes of play.  Ayse Mustafa and Taylor O’Leary busily won the ball in midfield with support from Charlotte Dean. 

Spurs drew first blood in the shape of Laura Smith, whose vision was keen to spot the St. Albans keeper off her line and the striker delivered the perfect lob from 25 yards out.  A second chance came begging when Nikki Hunnable charged down the right wing and delivered a timely cross into the penalty area in the 22nd minute.  Renata Inniss slightly over ran the ball and instinctively tried to improvise with a flick, but the ball went wide of the goal.  Olivia Keown, Rosie Kmita and Katie Mills very busy trying to quell the odd attack from the St Albans offence.

After 25 minutes of the first half, Whitney Tango substituted Taylor O’Leary. Spurs had another chance in the thirty-first minute through Charlotte Dean who shot just wide of the goal post. St. Albans came close to getting an equaliser in the 34th minute, but Olivia Keown denied their striker a clear shot on goal.  One minute later Renata swerved through the St Albans defence to give Spurs a 2-0 lead. 

Two minutes of play in the second half, Spurs extended their lead to 3-0 from Whitney Tango.

Stand-in goalkeeper Shianne had to make a save in the 13th minute before giving up the No. 1 shirt to Charlotte Dean.  Katie Mills got in some strong tackles to thwart the St. Albans offence, whilst Hannah Lyons made some good runs down the left wing to keep the pressure on the St. Albans defence.

The visitors managed to mount a couple of attacks towards the Spurs goal, but their way was blocked by Olivia Keown on both occasions.  In the twentieth minute, Renata received the ball from Hannah Lyons on the left-hand side outside the18 yard box only to see her shot on goal just missing the far post.  The St. Albans goalkeeper showed good judgement in moving at the right time to deny the Hotspurs any more goals for the rest of the game. 

It was a good spirited match against a team who previously took the scalp of Luton Town and drew with Enfield Town.

St. Martins U13 0
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U13 6
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Division 1
The Under-13s travelled to Vauxhall Recreation Club ground, the home ground for St. Martins Girls Football Club. The smaller size pitch was firm and a little muddy in the goal mouth.  The weather was sunny with chilled winds and the game kicked off at 14:00hrs. 

Spurs Ladies took the game to St. Martins from the kick off and was rewarded in the 10th minute when Renata Inniss netted the ball from inside the 18-yard box. St. Martins tried in vain to grab the equaliser to no avail but the also manage deny Spurs Ladies any further goals in the first half as they failed to capitalise on their chances.

Molly Kmita tried to make inroads on the right wing but came up against the pugnacious St. Martins defenders. Katie Mills and Olivia Keown got in some solid tackles with captain Shianne St Louis doing the ‘mopping up’ when the St. Martins attackers tried to grab their share of goals. 

Spurs Ladies started the second half with more vigour and added a second goal when Whitney Tango shot through the St. Martins defence and into the net. Spurs Ladies looked a bit shaky at times in defence but always halt the St. Martins attackers when it really mattered. As usual, Taylor O’Leary and Ayse Mustafa worked hard in midfield to keep the pressure on the St Martins defence. Taylor O’Leary headed home the ball for Spurs third in the 15th minute from a cross from Nikki Hunnable on the right wing.

Whitney Tango scored a peach of a goal in the 21st minute when Renata drove the ball into the six-yard box from the right wing and Whitney rifled the ball in the net.  Nikki Hunnable made some fierce runs down the right wing to supply Laura Smith in attack where she saw her efforts go wide each time.  Daisy O’Sullivan was called upon to produce a good save in the twentieth minute when the St Martins attacker broke through the left wing from a throw in.  Whitney completed her hat-trick and Spurs fifth in the thirty-first minute. Spurs kept up their momentum in the St. Martins half where Renata capitalised on an attempted clearance from the St Martins defence.  Renata saw the opening between the defenders and the goalkeeper and directed a left foot shot into the net for Spurs' sixth goal of the match.
