Spurs Inflict First Defeat

Monday 6 January 2020 09:16

Main Action:

The Under-18s fell to their first league defeat of the season against a formidable Tottenham side on Saturday morning despite Jean-Pierre Tiehi's strike.

Both teams tried to settle into their passing rhythm in a similar set-up in playing styles without threatening either goal. The first scoring opportunity came seemingly out of nothing as Adrion Pajaziti dangled a leg from a looping header that sent Rafferty Peddlar tumbling in the box. Harvey White stepped up to score his first spot kick of the game.

The half featured sparing chances which was aided by two proactive keepers in Damian Las and Timothee Lo-Tutala rushing to avert any danger from long balls.

Barely a minute into the second period and Spurs doubled their lead from open play. J’Neil Bennett’s cross found Romaine Mundle wrong side who caressed home from inside the six-yard box.

Jean-Pierre Tiehi was sniffing around to try and find a route back into the game as he almost poked home Pajaziti’s cross. At the other end, Spurs were awarded their second spot kick of the game as Jay Williams brought down the tricky Bennett at the byline.

A slice of fortune offered the lads a route back into the game as Ollie O’Neill’s deflected cross looped into the path of Tiehi who bundled home from close range.

The game was put beyond doubt with eight minutes to play as Bennett again found room on the left to square for sub Terrelle Whittaker to make it four.

What That Means:

Chelsea’s draw with Arsenal moves our neighbours three points clear in the U18s title race with West Ham moving within three points with an emphatic win over Southampton. The lads stay second. 

Notable Talking Points:

  • The squad featured three Under-16s with two of them appearing in the starting XI.
  • Spurs inflicted the Under-18s’ first defeat of the season.
  • The squad will fly to Germany to compete in the annual Sparkasse Cup.
