TOTTENHAM 2-1 ASHWOOD
A stunning performance from the boys that actually saw us out perform Spurs in a number of areas.
Heung-Min Son opened the scoring as he met a Lucas Moura diagonal cross into the box, Riviere got a hand to it but it trickled over the line as the hosts took the lead on 33 minutes.
Ashwood answered immediately, a long ball from Marco Nipic on the halfway line was cleared poorly by Vertonghen and Ivan Lloyd was able to meet the ball with a fantastic half-volley, Lloris was wrong-footed and the Superwhites made things level just before the break.
The second half, we had Spurs for the taking. An expansive pressing game from Felix’s boys showed Tottenham that Ashwood weren’t going to lay down. Unfortunately - Kieran Broom did indeed lie down injured in the 93rd minute, in what the referee presumed to be an attempt to wind down the clock. With a gaping hole in midfield, Alli was able to lift the ball over the back four and AN OFFSIDE Harry Kane slotted the ball past Riviere as the hosts picked up all 3 points.
Wolves at home next on the horizon and you can finally feel the Ashwood unit coming together and the philosophy of Felix Grosjean coming to the fore.
