Bianca Baptiste scored twice for Tottenham

 It was also FAWPL v FAWSL 2 in the other FA Women’s Cup 4th Round tie with Totteham Hotspur Ladies from the FAWPL Southern Division hosting Aston Villa Ladies at Cheshunt FC this Sunday.

  Aston Villa got into their stride with both sides creating chances finding space out wide if not the final ball into the box. Midway through the 1st half Aston Villa were level breaking from a Tottenham free kick on half way the ball was sent forwards for new signing Destiney Toussaint to latch onto making a run in behind the Tottenham defence to send the ball past goalkeeper Toni-Ann Wayne coming to the edge of her box to make it 1-1 at the break. Tottenham were to regain the lead in the 2nd half catching the Aston Villa defence static after a couple of pauses for injuries to be treated Baptiste was put through again to lob the keeper from outside the box for the 2nd time in the match. The game was end to end Aston Villa looking to get back into it won a corner with 7 minutes left a great in swinging delivery was met at the far post by midfielder Mollie Rouse who bundled her header over the line 2-2 the final whistle blew sending the match into extra time. The 1st period saw no more goals. Early in the 2nd half of extra-time Aston Villa were attacking up the left from the resulting throw striker Katie Wilkinson was looking to carry the ball across the face of the box looking for space to shoot when she was shoved over the referee pointing to the spot.
