Spurs Game 1 2007

Football Aid Championships, Friday May 4th, White Hart Lane

Tottenham Hotspurs (Home) 12 – Tottenham Hotspurs (Away) 2

4 goals from Matt Jones helped Spurs Home destroy a valiant Away side in this highly entertaining match at White Hart Lane.

The Away team looked to be on to a winning start in the early stages of the first half, grabbing an early goal thanks to Stokes. Silver was the architect, playing a great through ball to the striker who deftly controlled the ball before neatly finishing the move.

It took a while for the Home team to respond to Away’s opening gambit, but when they did so, it was in spectacular fashion, netting 4 goals in ten minutes.

Matt Johns scored the equalizer, a well-taken volley flicked low into goal. Jim Dove added the second, a fantastic left foot shot that whizzed past keeper Ilanes.

Johns powered in his second on the half hour, the ball bouncing in off the underside of the bar while Hooper won a lung bursting race to a through ball minutes later, beating Ilanes to slot the ball home.

The Away team managed to pull one back, a great goal from Stokes swung into the bottom left corner of goal.

But Dove scored another 3 minutes before half time, coolly dispatching a low ball past a diving Ilanes to make the score 5-2 into the break.

In the second half the Home team thrived further. Substitute Loton joining in the goal fest, showing off some fancy foot work to dance past the keeper and confidently place the ball into the back off the net.

Johns continued to reveal his mix of tricks, his next goal a nifty header that brought the score to 7-2.

Treadwall added to the onslaught, calmly side-footing the ball in off the left post while Neenan fired a stunner of a goal in to make it 9-2.

Johns rounded off his tally with a sweet half volley with 10 minutes to go and Neenan got his second of the day 2 minutes later, a great high right footed shot that whistled into the top right hand corner.

A hand ball in the dying minutes gave Curran the chance to get on the score sheet – smashing home the resultant penalty to make the final score an unbelievable 12-2 to an inspiring Home side.
