FT: Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 4-0 West Ham United Ladies


FULL TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 West Ham United
A frustrating result for the Hammers on a night that was never going to be easy against this unbeaten Tottenham side. Scenes largely of celebration here at White Hart Lane though, as tonight's win secures the FA Women's Premier League (South) title for the hosts.

90' Into stoppage time here at White Hart Lane.

86' Final change for West Ham. Stephaney Bent on for Megan Peters.

83' Goal for Spurs. Bianca Baptiste goes through on goal and fires in to the back of the net. 4-0

80' The Hammers go close! Corner taken from the right side, it falls to Jasmine Auguste who fires, right-footed, just wide of the post. 3-0

78' Substitution for the Hammers - Chloe Burr comes off for Tia Bailey.

75' West Ham still searching for what would be a consolation goal at this stage. Tottenham's Bianca Baptiste goes the closest to adding to the scoreline, however, but her shot was well saved. 3-0

70' Goal for Spurs. Nikita Whinnett latches on to a miss-placed goal kick, runs in to the box and slots past Ivison. 3-0

66' Substitution for the Hammers - Julie Melfald replaces Whitney Locke. 2-0

55' Goal for Spurs. Baptiste with the low cross from the right hand side and it is Wendy Martin who turns it past Ivison with the outside of her boot. 2-0

50' Spurs go close. Baptiste drives a low ball across the face of goal and Martin, at full stretch, tries to reach it but it runs through the other side. 1-0

46' Second half under way, no changes.

HT: Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 West Ham United
A competitive first half where the Hammers started well. Josie Green's goal settled Tottenham who have perhaps looked the better side since. 

44' Chloe Burr goes close for West Ham, excellent work down the right hand side. Burr opts to shoot from a tight angle inside the box and the ball hits the side netting. 1-0

39' West Ham threatening on the counter-attack but not clinical in the final third as things stand. Ivison with another top save to deny Kelley Blanchflower as we enter the final minutes of the half. 1-0

35' Ivison again called into action - Baptiste's cross headed for the top corner but the Hammers keeper reaches high to parry at first, before then picking up the loose ball. 1-0.

30' Two excellent saves by West Ham's Lottie Ivison. Both to deny Spurs' Bianca Baptiste - first direct from a free-kick, then just thirty seconds later from 25 yards out. Still 1-0.

22' Goal for Spurs. Josie Green hits a speculative one from 25 yards and despite the best attempts from Lottie Ivison to parry it over the bar, the ball bounces in to the back of the net. 1-0

21' Spurs almost ahead as Wendy Martin flicks Leah Rawle's cross straight on to the cross bar.

19' First shot on target for the Hammers, who have been the better side so far. Burr and Cooper combining before Burr shoots from 25-yards, however it's collected by Wayne in the Spurs goal.

13' Good spell for the Hammers culminating with an excellent one-two between Chantelle Mackie and Whitney Locke. Mackie's cross is eventually picked up by the Spurs keeper.

8' First chance of the game goes to Tottenham. Schillachi sends in the free-kick, it's met by the head of Renee Hector but the ball just goes over the bar.

1' We're underway! COYI

6.50pm: Just a few minutes until kick-off here at White Hart Lane. Keep your eyes out for West Ham's Dayna Chong - the midfielder scored March's Goal of the Month after an outstanding volley against Swindon Town. No doubt the Hammers will be looking for something similar tonight.

For the hosts, they are unbeaten this season but have yet to meet West Ham in this season's FA Women's Premier League. A win for Spurs would seal the title and promotion into Super League 2.
